Hey OP! What was the TC offered for the L5 non-tech PgM role? Could you also give a breakdown of the compensation. Thanks 😊
Also, to your question, yes the background screening and visa transfer starts after you accept the offer.

If you don’t hear back by Friday sent a follow-up. Amazon is pretty good about turning around.

I joined ~6 months back and countered for 15% more and was given 10% as my final offer. The recruiter had to connect with the hiring manager, a finance partner and get an additional skip level approval. It does take some time.

However, that doesn’t mean you have to wait with no response. Even if they don’t have an answer they should be maintaining a line of communication. Good luck!

As a recruiter I am getting 50-60 emails a day and I can't always respond within 24 hours due to meetings, calls and inbox craziness. I would say give them time🙂.

Currently working on the most disorganized pitch I’ve ever seen. The GCD is running it and he is unable to make decisions, give feedback or any clear direction. He invites all creative teams to every check-in and then relies on the account team to email any feedback to the whole group. So he won’t meet teams individually or document anything. I’m equal parts amused and horrified. I would’ve posted this in the advertising or creative bowl but I think he might read it and know it’s about him. 😅

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?
