Upside is higher at Amazon. I’m principal product now but even as a senior product manager, I made significantly more than I would have as a big pharma director and senior director.

Good luck I’m working with large pharma companies now and many are eager to hire from Amazon and Google in particular. You have good options either way.

Director of what function? That would be good to know. It’s worth knowing that Amazon tends to put a certain number of people on performance improvement plans each year and then cuts the 10% lowest performers each year too. If that’s not stress you want to take on, avoid Amazon

Product manager is the better function for sure. Just know what you are getting into and have a plan to exit in 12-18 months just in case you get put on a performance improvement plan
