Isn't 206k TC too low for Applied Scientist 2 role (MS, no PhD) at Amazon

I just received this year's compensation summary. Base is 148k but I feel my TC is lowest of all AS at Amazon? Please share your own TC if you are AS at Amazon (No PhD). I looked around a lot but cannot find an average to compare it with.

YOE as SDE -3
2 years at amazon as sde1,
1 year somewhere else before my masters
YOE as AS - less than a year (6 months)

      Ehhhh, I get that attitude but your job starts at the negotiation, an employee who negotiates well is respected at day 1, a person who doesn’t is seen at a lower value.

      Also, AI is paying very well right now, he’d be selling his services cheap.

    This definitely feels low considering many fresh bachelor's are getting higher TC (lower base, higher stock) even in Seattle.

    Do you need an MS/PHD to become an Applied Scientist? Or is it possible to transition internally from SDE to AS?

      You need to research offers but you should be closer to 300k possibly higher.
