Cisco / Product U there
Feb 15, 2019 48 Comments

Hi mats,

I am expecting an offer from Amazon Alexa to be a Technical Program Manager, any details on what the expected TC can be? (Break-down)

Does Amazon down level often? I have interviewed for L6 and received L5... the recruiter promised will be promoted after a year or so if perform well....

Does have competing offer help?

Thanks ๐Ÿ™

    Recruiter can also promise that you will become VP of Alexa in 6 months.

      L6 interviews are really hard to crack at amazon... they always down level you to L5 and pay you the top of the band.. I would expect between 160k and 180k

      Amazon doesn't vest over 4 year equallys. It's 5 15 40 40

      40 rsu for first and second year bonus?

    Hahaahhahahhahahahaaahahhahahha. hooooo. no. L6 Sr. TPM promos may be a bit easier than L6 SDE promos but they sure as shit aren't easy and I have yet to see one happen within a year.

      This is true in theory but not always in practice. Getting promoted requires demonstrating competency at the next level consistently for 6-12 months AND having the right people at higher levels watch you do it. Getting hired at that next level only takes convincing people for a few hours of interviews. Also, at the L7 plus level there is a lot of politics involved in promos.

    Does anyone know if Amazon cares about your competing offer? (๐Ÿ˜‚)

      It depends on how desperate the hiring manager is :)

      10y? I think your TC should be 200K+

      Well, apparently they donโ€™t even give L6, which makes me wonder if having other offers (high TC) would change that

    Thank you for all the replies guys, I know the recruiter is full of shit as they donโ€™t get control on any promo crap, they just want you in. I was wondering why all fresh MBA offered L6 :((.....

    How difficult is it to be promoted at Amazon Alexa? ) I heard it grew a lot over last year in terms of size)

    How does typical promotion work within Amazon? (Once a year after year end perf review?)

    I had the same experience with TPM role at alexa. Interviewed for L6, but offered L5. TC: 155k, no promise for promotion. What's your TC breakdown? Did you negotiate?

      Hi there,

      They have not offered a letter, they are asking: Are you willing to take it? All interviewers loves you but think you fall short to be L6, you are very very close so I recommend you take it (L5)

      What was your TC break-down, base, bonus, RSU and Sign-on etc

      Thanks
