I am starting as a Sr Product Manager Tech L6 at Amazon in few weeks. (YOE-7, TC 330)

Checking in with other PMTs at Amazon here:
What do you all think one needs to know to succeed in this role?
How much technical knowledge is expected from PMTs at Amazon?
How is WLB in most teams/organizations from what you have witnessed and heard from your other friends at Amazon?
Any other piece of advise you got for me?

I appreciate your help! Thank you 😊

Not a PMT but my manager was sending me emails at 1 AM yesterday. Don't count on wlb unless you get lucky and land on a decent team

It’s a grind with high expectations. If you come from a consulting background you’ll be used to it. Data is everything at AMZN. Get used to tracking and quantifying the value you bring to the company at all times.

like

Everything is data driven, every sentence should be justified and in support of the customer. Also, be diplomatic. If you try to own a doc or design without letting others get involved or getting their input, your doc will fail to move forward. This is usually an issue with younger PMTs that are trying to prove themselves-great designs, but fail to get consensus before the consensus meeting. You should be an author and a congressional whip at the same time 😂

Author and a congressional whip 😂 best dialogue ever!!
Are you a PMT? Have you worked in multiple or single team? How has your experience been so far?

I find that the PMTs that know what they are doing don’t work crazy amounts. The ones that don’t have a clue end up quitting. You’ll be fine

Of course it depends. But the more you know, the easier your job is and your performance shows.

Dude, you got lowballed on the salary. Average L6 PMT makes $485k.

Did you bomb your loop? I wouldn't take that offer based on principle alone. Unless you are happy working for peanuts.

funny

Yep. Totally underpaid. L6 PMT ES should be in the 600s.

Quit immediately and boomerang back in a month.

You will be top of band and no interviews required.

This is the way.
