    How come you’re applying for a Senior Designer role with 15 YOE? Surely, you’re at least Principal Level?

    You should ask for a higher base (minimum 180) and more RSU (at least 100k).

    Did they also mention annual bonuses? And vacation leave?

    You should look for principal roles there and get higher TC...by a lot. What’s your role at Amazon, what team?

      I am not with Amazon right now. The last team was AWS IoT.

      The design for AWS IoT was really good...before this Polaris nonsense came into play. If you’re the guy who designed the original Greengrass stuff and IoT console then you need to go for a principal role at MSFT. AWS isn’t doing stuff like that anymore.

      What is Polaris? I designed the management console.

      Polaris is the new design language for AWS. It’s a good-enough kit, but the team behind it just injected a ton of bureaucracy into the process. Really champions visual consistency over...anything else. Lots of small-minded nitpicking.

      At Microsoft? I think I can ask more, wanted to know limits. TC doesn't look big for this role.

      If you’re getting leveled at a 63 with 15 yoe – don’t think you’ve got much room to negotiate. Numbers feel very considered of that

    How does Microsoft Sr. Designer TC compare to FAANG?
