AWS recruiter gave an offer. He said it is for a senior product manager - technical. However offer letter says product manager III - technical.

Wtf is this! Are they the same or is the written offer(3 line email - not the full offer) different than oral offer?

      Curious - why want to switch to PM? What about it interests you?

      There was no leetcoding.
      I want to switch to try to consider how to generate 10x more revenue and create code for it. Tired of creating code for a feature someone else thought of.

      Why not do that at MSFT ? I mean taking a pay cut to work at Amazon sounds a little crazy

      No, PM at Microsoft can easily be a useless job without any real responsibility. At Amazon PMs seem to have responsibility and accountability.

      Microsoft doesn’t yet understand what a “Product Manager” is.

    PMT3 title is senior. Good tc for it. Would I move from swe, don't know.

  • Amazon III is Senior AFAIK. Check Levels.fyi. I think SDE III is Senior SDE so I’d imagine that follows everywhere else too.
