In Amazon, which roles gets a higher pay range - PM or PM-T? Does one report to the other?

I fit both roles but want to apply to one that positions me for growth. Does PM-T limit my interactions to scrum teams only and does PM become a glorified baby sitter for stakeholders? Who makes the decisions n who is the North Star for the product?

    It depends on the team. You just have to ask. In some teams, PM drives prod decisions and working w Engs to execute while in other teams PM is like a program mgr role. Make sure you ask. PM-T is more likely to make prod decisions and working closely with Eng. some PM-T are not even that technical. All depends on the team which makes it really confusing.

  • PM-T has a higher range and needs to have some technical knowledge of an SDE. But anyone can report to anyone in Amazon depends on who’s the higher grade.

    I thought that all Product Managers in AWS are PM-T. And that there is no PM-T outside of AWS (ie PM-T essentially means Product Manager in AWS). Is this not correct?

      Not true. Many of not most of the PMs in Alexa and devices are PM-Ts
