asking for a raise post-hire

Any success stories or tips about asking for a base pay increase after being at a company a few years?

Been at Amazon 4+ years, promoted to L6 2 years back with a modest increase. Talked to a few recently hired L5s with the same job title and I’m barely making more than them, with more overall experience. Admittedly, didn’t negotiate well going into Amazon.

Would it be easier to move on instead?

    Move on. Amazon SDE3 is highly respected outside.

      Funny, I was kind of hoping for an answer from an Oracle. How’s the environment there, specifically Seattle?

    Depends on what's keeping you at Amazon?

    Even if you had negotiated in the most successful way, after 4+ years your TC is bound to be at lower band of L6 because of internal promotion. Thats how things roll
