I have recently completed my one year after promo in SDE II role here in Amazon Hyderabad. I wish to explore some good career opportunities in Seattle.
1. What are some of the good teams (preferably AWS/Alexa) to give interviews in?
2. What are the typically asked questions? Do they ask DS Algo in depth (i am too lazy to study this again)? Design Questions (from where to prepare)?
3. What TC should I expect given that my TC here in india is around 38L INR right now?

    38L is Target Compensation? Or with inflated stock price?

    You can expect an internal loop with standard algo design questions. How deep interviewers go is solely based on them. Since you only have 1 yr experience as L5 you probably will be extended an offer that is at the bottom of the band (180k). You will not have negotiation power unfortunately.

    Good teams(definition depends on what you enjoy doing) usually want to interview you again but there is no bar raiser and about 2-3 interviews. Interviews are 50% about your work history at Amazon and 50% regular interviews(No warm up questions asked).

    TC would be around 200k

    It can depend on team. Most teams would do a loop.
