Hello friends, I had an opportunity to interview with Amazon Onsite. It was a very pleasant experience interviewing with them. They would like to move forward and make an offer it looks like. What do you guys think?

Exp - 9 yrs
Offer - Dev II
Salary range - L5

Location- Seattle

Didn’t get any numbers yet.

How is it like working for Amazon?

Please help. This is a huge change for me. I would like to make the right decision.

    It is really hard to give any info as working for Amazon really depends on the team and manager you report to. If you have a friend working there, try an get specifics about the team, WLB, etc.

    Expect 220k-250k, depending on whether you have competing offers or not.

      Yeah, I was interested in the team and had high expectations on Salary due to my experience. I would have given it a thought, if it was 250K. 230K without salary hikes for 4 years is not something I am willing to do.

      I told HR that it is not anywhere close to my expectations. HR also confirmed they won’t be able to pay even 240K. I have decided to start search again sometime next year.

      They offered 230K. I had to reject the offer purely based on Salary number.

    Did you have competing offers? It's basically impossible to get good offers unless you have multiple nowadays.
