Is TC negotiable if I am promoted, switch to a new location, but remain in the same role (SDE) at Amazon, or is TC only negotiable if i switch roles or switch companies?

Is severance negotiable?

Is moving compensation negotiable?

Im looking to decide between staying at Amazon Seattle, moving to Amazon Arlington, moving to Google. Ideally I want to move back to Herndon to live with family for financial reasons and have family to help me take care. Should I transfer after promo? But Google does not have tech office in DC area, so ill be stuck with first two options. I can stay in Seattle but then I wont be able to live in my own condo

    You negotiate when you have leverage.

    If they want you to move really badly, you can try to negotiate TC. Otherwise you have no leverage.

      So can I just go up to my HR and say I have an offer from Google, I’m about to leave, give me better comp? Even pretending to have an offer?

      Companies have policies around that. Some companies have strict policy for no bargain current employees. But directors get discretionary equity which they can use in such a case.
