Microsoft levels

Amazon aWxQ38
Mar 2, 2018 23 Comments

I got an offer for a job at MSFT level 67. It’s a business role. Does anyone know what the level means? Is this like senior role or what is it equivalent to in standard titles (the role has a weird title so I can’t tell)? Like is this equivalent to a Sr Director role or what?

      Sorry L67 makes more than l8 also in many cases

      It’s L8 not L7 at amazon. So if you are an L8 you will be considered for 67

      How much does a solid L67 in a nontechnical role? Any clues?

      I’m L7 at the end of it and probably would make L8 soon so I’m skeptical

    If you are going as L67, you are top 1000 people in the company. In your next promotion you will be partner which will put you on 1mil+ pay grade. Best of luck.

      It reports to a GM. Is this normal? Are CVPs Satya’s directs?

      Yes this is normal... 67 is also considered GM... CVP reports to EVP.. EVP are Satya directs

    It's pretty big level. It maps to L8 level at Amazon

      Thanks. Any clue on what Principal vs Partner means there? :)

      Partner is big deal. That's level 68. Lot of partners from there came as VP here. What is your level at Amazon?
