      I'm currently a research head in a startup. Is the level equivalent to a Sr. PM?

      It's pretty unheard of, getting direct L64 with 8 years external experience. Unless the startup is getting acquired. Hope you not a troll.

      People 'grow' to L64 inside MSFT in 8-12 years. But external hires with 8 yoe typically come in at L62/63. This is at Redmond, I'm assuming India is the same. Do real well when you join, they probably hold you in high regard.

      8 years is more like avg to get to 64 internally. Yes for external hires 8 years is usually 62/63. Unless you are from FAANG.

    You are probably over-leveled. L63 is more suitable.
