Amazon down level

Got an offer from Amazon for L5 SDE at 8 YOE. I tried for an L6 role butnit didn't go anywhere . Currently L5 at Instacart  which is considered senior. TC is 375k 1st year and ~370k next three years in Chicago .

Is this a good career move?

This is a good career move if you’re committed to staying with Amazon until you’ve reached a position/title that aligns with your experience. Another advantage based on an assumption is that you would have more opportunities to grow at a company like Amazon. I could completely wrong in that assumption though.
