Current TC 220k at Twitter, SF
Amazon: 315k TC, Security L5 (somehow I managed to negotiate L6 pay but they refuse to budge on L5 title), Seattle
YOE: 5 almost 6 years

Other than perks and benefits, seems like the offer is a no brainer. Thoughts?

    L5 315k? All the money with no l6/l7 admin work to do. No brainer. Unless your manager is trash, take it.

      OP
      I don't know if I can offer and tips since I didn't do any of recommended negotiation tactics. I gave them the numbers I wanted they couldn't meet them and said this was the cap. I explained that it wouldn't financially make sense for me to take that offer unless they met this minimum and they came back with it.

      My comp is substantially lower than it should be and my manager said it was strictly due to how I negotiated. I would love to stay but I don't see Twitter coming even close.
