400k that’s like how much homeless people make in dealing crack in the streets of Seattle. You gotta ask the recruiter for the “premium comp package”, that’ll get you 30% higher instantly. It’s kinda the same thing like asking for your in n out fries “animal style”. Make sure you whisper it when you’re over the phone so no one else can hear the secret code.

I get what most of you are saying, but you didn’t answer OP’s question in the least... he’s asking whether this is a good L8 offer or not. I don’t have a good answer for you OP, though if you check Paysa for Amazon, range is 350-500k avg at L7 for a few roles that are more customer/revenue facing (SWE, PM). In that sense it feels like a decent offer

like

Yea, at these companies SWE and PM tend to pay the most, you don’t see as many data points for non technical roles, but I think it sounds like a good offer.

It’s probably too much given the incredibly low EQ (emotional intelligence) that you exhibit and likely possess

Doesn’t seem like your EQ is that much higher given that you can’t keep your jealousy in check. Woof.

OP, if you want serious answers, share your YOE and how much you currently make, and if any special skills you bring. Otherwise, your questions is similar to asking online.. I weigh xxx pounds, am I overweight? Probably finance is not the right area?

Sorry for being insensitive and ostentatious. It was totally unintentional. I was just hoping to get a genuine answer.

Haha people are just teasing and some might be slightly jealous. You’re asking a fair question just without knowledge on the role and YoE it’s hard to answer. Who knows you might be able to squeeze another $50k out, you’ll never know unless you ask but then again is an extra 50k worth a few more weeks of negotiations? You tell me

Wage transparency means more equitable pay. This bowl exists bc it’s supposed to be useful. Some of y’all should read a book, an article, just read. OP if you haven’t negotiated it’s worth at least one back and forth, just remember if they won’t budge, cash isn’t everything.
