Looking for any insight from women on my offer dilemma. AWS offered me a BA II/L5 role.

TLDR: the offer is too low. They offered ~130K TC, & I countered with 170K TC. People are telling me the offer is appropriate, but based on skills/experience I should be in higher level, and it's under my current TC. I countered Tuesday morning & haven't heard anything back. Did I jeopardize my offer by asking for 30% more? Additional context/offer details in comments.

Hey SDA

1st of all congratulations on getting upto this stage.

On the package I am not well aware of how much does AWS pay for L5, what I heard is if its a Technical role then they pay more.
Have you checked Glassdoor and levels.fyi to get an idea about the salary at this level?
RSU definitely looks low, but I would check at levels.fyi

On the other note can you please share what all rounds you had there ? And how did it go? Any insights if you can.

Once again congratulations, but do check these sites and then compare.

The offer:

Base: 115K
Bonus: 15K/9K (first and second year)
RSUs: 10 (yes, that's it)
Current TC: 133K
Previous TC: 138K
YOE: 11 in data roles

Also, recruiter is on a 3day offsite, so asked we negotiate by email until he can talk on phone, but has not even acknowledged my counter yet.

Forgot to mention the role is on a Seattle based team, but I would be remote in Los Angeles. They also sourced me directly for the role, so they knew I have been in Sr Data roles for years, and had over 10 years experience. I'm confused why they would not offer me at L6, I also am fairly confident I did well on the loop. I was very prepared and felt every interview hit the mark.
