I just got an offer to join Amazon as a Principal PM in Seattle:
$98k signing bonus, spread over 2 years
215 RSUs with the usual AMZN vesting schedule (5%/15%/20%...)
I'd like to get to 255 RSUs. Is that going to be a reach? Should I try to get more in signing bonus instead? That would get me closer to what I am making now. (I'm happy to take a small pay cut in this case.)
For background, I have 10 years experience, and a very specific skill set that matches to the team.
I've already looked at Glassdoor, Levels, and posts on Blind, but you know how it is...it would be super helpful to get feedback from current/former Amazonians!
Edit: Counter with 160 salary, 260k sign on, 320 RSU if truly L7.
