I would have said PE rather than FAANG. But yea

What’s the decision- to stay or to go? Would go for it, but keep in mind that Amazon is very intense work culture. Good luck.

Clarifying (Sr. Product Manager, non-tech)

Which product line? Team culture? That would dictate my decision, but I’m also pickier about the topic of my work and the people on the team than I am about WLB/compensation.

Also - what was your TC? Amazon has become very stingy with $$s esp RSUs.

Hi everyone,

New to fishbowl <3, early in my career as a product designer and Latina woman in Tech 💪🏽

I just landed a new contract role and wanted to share my salary experience. I was offered a role at $50 / hour and countered for $55/hour. They came back with $57.

$7 jump just like that.

In my heart I wanted to counter with $60 per the 21 cents rule. I think I left money on the table 😪


But hey, I’m grateful for the work.


I want to share because transparency helps us all 💪🏽💪🏽

Hey ladies - Pay equity Q:
Im interviewing and have a male friend/current employee who is very supportive of women's equal pay who shared his salary and told me what I should target.

He got his offer May 2020 for $180k - Today I am being told the max is $170k. I guess the band could have changed… But highly unlikely. What do I do? Hard not to feel lowballed as a woman.

I know it won't jump to 130k, but a nice boost would really cut down on my FOMO.

Some advice from a regular remote interviewer - If you feel you can justify/maximise your value to a company above the current salary band, apply for the role, push for that higher salary and impress the heck out of the panel. You'll be surprised how open that conversation can be.

Company's have budgets in place for recruitment. Therefore, adjustments can be made to other open roles marginally to facilitate recruiting your higher salary request.
