Hey guys!
What is the band range for level 6 for BIE and Data Engineer roles?

Background: I had a great year which showed both in my forte feedback and money i saved for Amazon. However my comp did not show any growth except for stock appreciation which was minimal. I was not offered any additional stocks as well.
I spoke with the people above me and they said that compa stat was already pretty high so they could not offer me any more money. He said the only way to get me more money was to move me to the next level and he said i was on track to go there in the next 6 months.

so my question is if I get promoted to level 6 what kind of bump can i expect. Would getting hired at T5 by one of the top companies(FAANG) or start ups (Uber/Airbnb) in the next month instead of waiting 6 months for a promo be a better move for me?

PS: I'm very good at what i do so getting hired at one of the companies i mentioned should not be very difficult.

    for the 1st two years the vesting schedule gives you only 5% and 15%. So most engineers get from 60 to 100 stocks over 4 years at the time of joining

    Amazon stock is through the roof so why is it minimal?

    The point of the question is not whether I can get in those companies. I will if it's the right career move. what I rather want you guys to focus on is should I be leaving Amazon before my level 6 promo that is due in 6 months to get hired at t5 at one the above companies in about a month from now.

    Im already close to an offer with one of them. It is pretty easy to get into BIE and DE roles once you start dealing with the scale of data that I have dealt with an Amazon.

    Also being good at what you do in one company doesn’t mean the same for all companies. Not because of you but because of company and work culture of the company.

    Being good at what you do has little correlation with you chance of getting hired.
