Negotiate offer with current employer

Mar 19, 2019 6 Comments

I am currently at Amazon aws. L5, TC 210k. I have an offer from Microsoft Azure for 260k. I was trying to negotiate for 300k, but was not possible.

I want to stay at aws if amazon can match 260k. Can I negotiate salary with my current manager? How do I start conversation??

I do not want to accept offer and reject later realizing that amazon would like to match that offer. I do not want to burn bridges with Microsoft.

    I've only seen (on Blind) Dive & Save work for L6 or above (and is actually recommended for right after L6 promo). They won't match 260k but they might override and rate you TT, which could affect base but won't result in stocks until next year. That will update your TCT to 240k (assuming all Seattle numbers instead of Bay Area).
