How often are employees up for promotion/raises at Amazon Web Services ? I have an offer for program manager and the comp offer isn’t fully aligned to my expectation, but I hear that there’s lots of upward movement.

Theres also a lot of pips before your besting hits

C1 correct. Amazon’s vest is back loaded in years 3 and 4. Lots of anecdotal evidence on tech forums they look to PIP people prior to their vest dates as part of “performance culture”.

L4 to L5 and L5 to L6 are pretty easy/straightforward promotions. Assuming you’ve been offered L5, getting a promotion to senior L6 shouldn’t be much of an issue given solid performance. L6 is considered terminal so moving up from there is harder.

Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?

Hi, I had my Accenture HR round last Wednesday and everything was discussed, from salary structure to usual HR interview questions. I am yet to receive any communication for further processing including my BGV and rest of the process. I called the HR yesterday and said I will receive further communication. Can someone please tell me if there is a chance that they will send me offer letter or any further processing and if this is normal for Accenture to take time after having HR round?
