This is good for what it is, being a psuedo-retail buyer role and assuming it’s in Seattle (no state income tax). That’s total comp of ~200k. Other retail companies pay 100-150 for the same, Amazon pays much higher. If Bay Area FAANG and biz ops or product strategy (likely supporting some ads) and possibly program management, can expect around 250 tc. If product management can go to 300k or perhaps a bit over. If you like retail and/or that’s where your background is, great. If you don’t...then would look again. Could also just take it and move to a pm role later, Amazon is known to be the most flexible and open to ppl switching roles.

I mean stock appreciation aside this is a pay cut, no?

Generally they try to assume a 15% stock growth YoY, so if stock performs poorly, you’ll see an increase elsewhere. Exit opps are def better

Hi Guys, I am confused between Thoughtworks and Amazon. (Better CTC at Amazon). Thoughtworks: overall good work culture and benefits but a service-based company. Amazon: Product-based company, FAANG tag but really messed up work culture and pip program. Which one to go for? Exp: 6.5 years Role: Data Engineer (Senior Consultant at TW and Data Engineer 2 at Amazon)
