Really thinking ahead: Hi all, I am expecting an offer from Amazon for an L7 non tech role and they said they can go up to $650k in intial screening calls. I am currently a non tech L6 at Google $378k, 1.5 years and promotion to L7 best case scenario in 6 months, but who knows. Also an H1B visa which means any move takes ~2 months from offer signing to joining. Questions for this group (contd.) Google

What l7 non/tech role gives 650 at amazon lol. Also 378 as l6 seems low at google despite role. And how’s a partner on h-1b. Nothing seems right 😂

That’s now how salary bands work at google. Plus nationality is a protected category so the OP can sue if that’s true.

Questions for this group:
1. Does Google do retention offers of this magnitude and for this level? Especially in the current cost cutting environment
2. If I were to test the waters on retention, is it best to go after visa transfer is approved or before? Knowing that visa transfer is an interesting nuance in my case and a lot can happen in 2 months
3. What is the timing of finalizing end of year bonuses in the new grad process. Have been burned couple of times on switching in other companies where my end of year bonus was slashed to almost zero as I was leaving anyway, to create more budget for ppl who stay. Don't want to do that and hence most likely not have any retention conversation till remuneration for this year is taken care of.

(Fingers crossed the Amazon offer does come. Have one round of final interviews still left so REALLY thinking ahead)

I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news…but 1.5 years asking about 650k is not going to get you any responses. Especially as an H1B.

I wish I had better notes for you, but the very idea is that amount at this stage of your life if likely beyond of the scope of the vast majority of people.

If it helps, the best analysis you can do right now is about the company that had the best long term outlook. I personally feel that Google is better positioned, but my perspective is hardly a gold standard.

If you want some definitive answers…what are you worried about?

Thank you for the only helpful answer on this thread

378 TC?

I think you need to temper your expectations - unless you are in a revenue generating role - you are looking at a lateral move from Amazon. I do not expect you will get anywhere near 650k - that seems to the salaries that I hear for technical hires in high demand areas.

Stay with google, figure out your visa situation.

Either that - or what to see what amazon comes back with

For context, was offered less than 300k TC for an L7 non-tech role at Amazon.

Google only does retention bonuses for very high level employees (mostly in Eng). I’ve never seen it happen for non-Eng.
