Between India and the USA, it varies from individuals to individuals based on their experience, role,
and a few other factors. So, there are no exact numbers; only estimates and aggregates.
Plus, the high-level new employees at Amazon
also get a joining bonus, as well as the RSU or
Restricted Stock Unit. They also get annual bonuses.
But coming back to your question…
A senior product manager at Amazon (L7 and L8) makes anywhere between INR 31.5 lakh and INR
A product manager at Amazon (L6) makes between INR 5 lakh to INR 27 lakh.
In the United States, a senior product manager at Amazon (L7 and L8) makes anywhere between
$109k and $160k. An Operations Manager (L6) gets between $42k and $104k.
In the US, an L6 software engineer makes a total of about $305k a year (includes all the bonuses and
stock). An L7 software engineer makes $569k annually (includes all bonuses and stock).
So, there’s no definite answer to this. It depends on their experience, exact role and the ladder. On
the web, you will find all sorts of numbers; very different from each other.
But to give you a basic idea, if you’re working at the Amazon on L6, L7, and L8 levels, you’ll be
making a lot of money both in the US and India, or anywhere in the world – much higher than your
peers in other countries.
