Is 215-225k possible for an L5 role at Amazon Seattle? They are offering a lateral move from FB but only want to jump if +20% in comp raise is possible. Additionally, anyone familiar with successful negotiations at Amazon? Recruiter likes to play hardball but the hiring manager let me know she’s pushing extremely hard to get me hired.

Would love some advice—I’ve spent the last 2 yrs in sr level role doing policy work I enjoy. early on I discovered I was srsly underpaid & had to fight to fix it. Then leadership changed & things were good, until recently they dangled a promotion only to tell me it wouldn’t come with a raise for at least 6 mons. Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?

Not necessarily investment advice, but I am applying for an EIN for my LLC. Single member LLC, plan on doing social media and possibly some consulting work depending on the client. My question is should I file a Form 2553 to have my LLC have an S corp status? I would like to use the revenue to pay my rent or for other discretionary income outside of my 9-5 (less than 2k/mnth). So does it make sense to do a form 2553 so I can pay myself as the sole prop, deducted that payroll from taxes?

I received an offer from Bain for the Manager role. Does it make sense to make a transition for the brand value? My goal is to exit consulting in 1-1.5 yrs. Currently, I am an AS1.5 at OW, expecting to progress either to AS3 or Engagement Manager (somewhat unclear at this point) at the EoY. My content focus has been in FS (where Bain is less strong in my country) and Private Equity areas.

I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute. I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled. Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩
