Going into a salary negotiation for an L4 Account Rep position at Amazon in either DC or Austin TX.

I will ask for base : 85k
Sign on bonus: 18,000
RSUs: 12,500
Relocation ? Not sure yet
They do not include commission and instead prefer a more generous base to give equal attention to potential opportunities.

The recruiter let me know the range is to 85,000-135,000 which is high and I’m not sure if what I’m asking for is too low. Please advice how you approach negotiation

That base look very low and the high end sounds low without commission for a sr sales role. A senior director should be making atleast 200-250 OTE. Ideally a 130-150k base with an opportunity to make an additional 100k in commission. Also, I’m not sure I can understand working in sales without commission.

Are you saying they are giving you 12k shares at $114 a share equaling 1.5M?? Or are they giving you 12k worth of shares? Yea if you are getting 1.5 M in equity but if not you are getting $12k in shares that you’ll have to wait potentially 4 years to vest and 18k (9kish after taxes) one time. Just don’t see this being a fair offer to a sr sales person. You should be getting 12k a month in commissions that you could buy the shares on the market and not wait for them to vest

You’re asking too low. With no commission that’s not enough base - ask right in the middle - 105k

Thank you! Yes I definitely was. For anyone reading - use levels.fyi and YOE.

They are going to negotiate, everyone does. I'd ask for near $135! Don't sell yourself short.

Go all in. Ask for the highest. Heck, you can even ask for 140 and they might come to 130. That way, you are really at the top of the band.

I second the ask for everything approach. 135 or bust! - I was starting to work on a script but your in sales prove your value to you

smart

Yes!! I came in confident of my value and leveraged past achievements + used levels.fyi to get an idea of big tech salaries

Austin is pretty expensive to live in most peoples opinions

Go for the highest definitely, it's a negotiation right so you gotta start somewhere
