Comp seems to be similar on levels.fyi, if my interview got approval but was leveled at L3, do you think it's better that I stay put?

- Amazon ✊ThanosJSWhat are you smoking? L5 at Amazon maps to L4 at Google in comp. I'm L5 and my comp is 250K. This is way above the band for L3 at Google... Are you not as confident with yourself? Looks like you aren't working on interesting and growth inducing projects in Amazon...
- Google / ProductmcIM55moreI would expect a lot of pressure to go for promo from L3 to L4 within a short time.
- Levels.fyi is biased with amazon levels. In no sane world amazon level L4 is bigger than google L3 and same for L5 -> L4 mapping.
- Agree that L4 at Amazon is pretty narrow since promo bar to L5 is pretty low. But Amazon L5 is a very broad band since promo to L6 and L6 hire from outside are both brutally hard. I know Amazon L5s that would clearly be Google T3s at best and those that would obviously be Google T5s. But the majority would be T4s.
