      That's not how Amazon does comp. They'll look at your target earnings for the level and current earnings and give you nothing if you're already making enough.

    Palo Alto Networks. Or VMware. Amazon tries to be legit by down-leveling capable people, but it’s just a sign of the company’s weird hubris and insecurity. You’re too experienced to be an L5 engineer at Amazon, you’ll be really frustrated with that.

      Totally possible. L5 at 285k, even in Seattle, especially applied scientist track.
