I'm curious if a band 9 at IBM is truly equivalent to level 65 at MS or L5/L6 at Google. Anyone leave IBM and go to a company on levels.fyi? Were the levels shown on the website what you experienced?

Yes, this is true. Expect one or two levels down. Even when you are downleveled, the TC on the new company is higher than IBM
