Higher TC different company? - Sr Mgr/Director
I’m making a good TC for an Amazon L7 SDM (550, mostly RSUs, top ratings every year, Seattle) but I have kids going to college in two years and am wondering if I should make a move to one of the better paying FAANG companies. Has anyone else left a decent paying, interesting leadership role to chase (bad choice of words, investigate earning more) the money (while still in an impactful role)? How did it work out?
For my colleagues in similar roles ( managing ~80 people) what does your TC look like assuming you sell your stock and don’t sit on it?
Lots of good comments. Thread devolved!
I am fortunate, no argument there.
Yes, I could swing it on my income.
Top tier schools are starting to hit 50k+/year per student.
4 kids, so looking at a fair amount of money if I pay the bill.
I should have saved more, but my comp grew a lot once I joined Amazon. My old comp was much lower.
It is ok if I don’t pay, but if I can I would like to try.
This is not the only reason to make more money. I would be quite happy to retire earlier and buy a nicer home, travel more ... that is just an immediate cost coming up.
I have a decent gig, no complaints. If I can have a similar role for significantly more comp, why not?
