Coming up on 2 yrs at AWS in Seattle. Have not received any raises or additional RSUs. Is that normal? What should I expect at this years compensation discussion? Started at $148K base, $24K 1st yr bonus, $19K 2nd yr bonus and 80 RSUs.

    If I am not mistaken, no raises means you're flagged as an LE based on what I've been told by others.

      No, it can also mean your comp is already at/above target, which is more common these days

    Yeah I was told I was at the higher end for an L5 marketer last year, but assumed I’d get some sort of increase in comp (either RSU or salary bump) after 2yrs. Seems like a raise (2-10% annually) is common place at every other company I’ve been with in the past. Guess Amazon is the exception. Thanks for the feedback!

    Agree. Seems like you're already at the high end of the band, which the skyrocketing stock price did to quite a few people. Also (I think/based on my marketing experience in and outside of AWS) AWS has the most aggressive compensation multiple across all orgs. Not a fun position, but get some external offers to compare, or get promoted.

    I know folks (non-amazon) who are getting way less in bay area so enjoy the fruits and keep pushing internally. If u want to do a salary check then apply outside.
