I have given an interview in Microsoft Hyd hopping for L63 somehow I am offered L62.

Reason given was you are not from a good college. Not sure if that can be a reason.
Reason for looking out : Amazon has too much work pressure

I am very unhappy with designation and is unable to decide can someone help me with there thoughts...

    Do not join at 62. Ask them to give 63 or reject their offer. If you tell how much are they offering, I can tell you if you should really push for 63 or not. But moving to 63 from 62 will atleast take 2 years.

      Did you had any competing offers? Because MS never pays this much, you must be really good.

      No competitive offer... I think Microsoft is paying more than this as well

      Those numbers are pretty good. Going from 62 to 63 is somewhat like going from L5 to L6. Not sure its a good idea if you want less work pressure. Agree that the hiring manager is a problem if "college" is advanced as a reason for lower pay. That runs counter to published MS values. You can report to HR and change teams right away after joining.

    I wouldn't join. The fact that they interviewed you and also that you are at Amazon and they still look back at your college is pretty concerning. I wouldn't work for that HM. Wait till you join and he promotes a newbie IITian to 63 before you hit 64. I don't know, tread carefully.

    Ask for more money. 62 has lower expectations than 63. Better wlb and easier to stand out if work pressure is reason for moving.
