Anticipating an offer from BAH as Principal at $400. I’m an L6 manager with almost 3 yrs tenure. My manager is targeting promo in Q1. Thoughts on whether I should exit? I got no pay bump for 2022 and am in the low $300s. Am getting a bit tired of the grind and wouldn’t mind a change at the moment.

When you earn that kind of money why should you go on a forum to seek advice especially when some people on this forum are earning 65k?

Sorry when you say BAH, do you mean Booze Allen? If yes, I find it amusing that someone at Amazon will even consider it!

If you like the offer why not??

Your L7 will most likely not include additional cash or shares until the next review cycle. Fwiw, was at Amazon 8 years.

Thx for the insight. Yeah that aligns to what a colleague who just got promoted to L7 told me.

My $.02: Use the Principal offer to see if your manager can accelerate the L6-to-L7 promo timeline. If not, take the Principal role for the 30% TC bump to $400k. Then, in 2 yrs, compare the BAH promo trajectory vs industry roles that have TC bump to $600k (eg, $350k base plus bonus plus annual RSUs).

A recruiter shared a salary band of 110-120 during an initial phone screen and I said it’s within expectation but didn’t commit to a number. However, if I get an offer, is it possible to negotiate after hearing the responsibilities of the position? I’d ideally like 125-135, but haven’t negotiated before. Appreciate any tips!

I worked hard at a small agency and was promoted from AE to AS after only 8 months in the industry. I had to leave and found a contract position as an AS at a large agency. I am finishing my contract and my boss offered me a permanent position, but wants me on as an AE. I am open to the AE position, but they are unwilling to compromise on the AE salary which is a substantial cut from my salary at my former agency and 45% of my contract pay. What do I do? Do I leave if I feel I deserve more?

I’d be taking about a 10% pay cut compared to IB but progression to roles with carry is open.
