Levels FYI negotiation was 100% worth the price. Negotiators do a great job of understanding where the offer comes in and how much room for negotiation there is. They craft smart and well-thought-out emails and do take your input into account. They are able to understand a company's salary bands, what competing offers would look like, and provide great talking points for your conversations with recruiters.

Levels.fyi has changed the course of my life. Companies have all the information and information is power. Levels.fyi changes that power dynamic and empowers the job seeker. I first learned of Levels.fyi about 5 years ago. A friend invited me for coffee and then explained that I was likely underpaid using the data from Levels.fyi. At that time, I thought I was paid well but Levels.fyi gave me new insight. From Levels.fyi, I learned that a mid-level engineer at a large tech firm could earn more than an executive at a small company. Using the data on Levels.fyi as inspiration, I changed about how I thought about my career. In the 5 years since, I’ve taken several different roles at companies that didn’t make the list at Levels.fyi, but the Levels.fyi data was always a helpful reference. After all this time, last month, I interviewed with AWS and they made me an offer. Yay! I immediate signed up for Level’s negotiation service. I have a strong believe that paid advisors – accountants, lawyers, other specialists – should pay for themselves. Levels.fyi data had already shown itself to be the best out there so the negotiation service was a no brainer. Levels.fyi connected me with Joe. Within hours, Joe and I had a 30 minute call where he explained the process. I sent him the offer and all the other data he requested. Joe told me what to say to the AWS recruiter who -- within 4 hours -- increased their offer $100k/year. For $2k, a 30-minute phone call, a little bit of prep, and 2 emails; the payback was $400k (over 4 years). Wow! This result far exceeded my expectations but is a testament to what a knowledgeable professional advisor can do. And even if I hadn’t seen this type of increase, I would have been happy for the validation and peace of mind I was being paid fairly for the role, company, experience, and location. Thanks Joe!!

Levels.fyi was an extremely eye-opening experience, starting with just browsing the compensation data on the website and then all the way through the engagement. Randy was instrumental in helping me achieve a total compensation well above my expectations. His knowledge of the market and process gave me the confidence to hold out and counteroffer an already excellent initial offer, without being scared to do so. His strategy of what to ask for and how to ask for it made the other side eager to get additional approvals to close the deal quickly. It’s amazing how a good strategy and a couple of well crafted emails resulted in over $400k of additional compensation over a 4 year period. The ROI on the cost of this engagement is better and more immediate than any other investment I’ve ever made.

The session was very useful as Randy (my coach) was able to guide me through the process and help me position myself better. Randy was extremely quick in providing guidance and feedback not only over the call but also through a follow-up email. Thank you.

Sarah is an amazing coach! She was so responsive and patient throughout the whole process. She understood the behind-the-scenes approvals process so well and explained it to me so that I could get context on what was happening. Most importantly, she has the data on the compensation bands. Knowing exactly the top and bottom range of the compensation band for the role was key for my negotiation, I knew exactly how much to ask for, and could properly evaluate the offer that was given to me. Sarah is amazing, and will fight to the end to get the best number possible.

Joe was instrumental in not only helping me negotiate a competitive offer but also better understanding and navigating the nuances of career progression even beyond a job offer. As an early-career tech professional with limited experience in the field and negotiating, was able to increase my offer by $25k base (even without having a competing offer), and also learned so many valuable lessons regarding interviewing, negotiating, and making strategic decisions throughout not only the negotiation process but throughout my career. I super recommend this service to anyone!

Randy was amazing! He was with me in every step of the process and helped me negotiate a much higher compensation than I was expecting.

From the very first call, my levels.fyi coach Randy was encouraging and helpful, laying out the plan of action for negotiating my offer. Throughout the back and forth between the company recruiter, Randy was incredibly responsive in telling me exactly what to say and what to ask for. For someone like myself taking the first job in tech, I can't emphasize enough how much confidence and peace of mind this gives. Allowing Randy to essentially communicate through me really took away all the stress of decision-making that negotiation usually entails. I really can't recommend this service enough!

This negotiation service is life-changing! I recommend it 10/10! I was already really happy with my initial offer, but Ashley helped push for a $40k bump in TC. I had to wait for ~1 week to get a response. The whole process can be very daunting, but Ashley helped answer all my questions in the meantime and eased my worries.

Elle was absolutely vital in my negotiation with Amazon. I had no idea what to ask or say specifically - even though there are a lot of articles and videos out there and I did my fair share of research, having the insight and knowledge of an actual recruiter was the best thing I could've done for myself. The offer went up $34k from beginning to end and I couldn't be more thrilled to start my new role.

This is a great service and I highly would recommend it! I think if you're not very experienced with negotiating and you make over 100k, you'll take alot away from this. It's an invaluable service for high earning power individuals, negotiating is a skill like any other. Invest in yourself through a specialized negotiating service like levels! It's the difference between fighting with a machine gun or a bow and arrow.

Mackenzie is knowledgeable about the Amazon negotiation process. An initial call to level-set the expectations followed by one other one to review the offer and plan of action for a counter offer was all it was needed - worked like magic. Mackenzies skill in crafting a cohesive response based on the current facts has secured me with an yearly raise of 33K from the initial offer.

Working with Carlos has been nothing short of amazing. He frequently adjusted his calendar to accommodate me on any given day within minutes of requesting him. Carlos answered every single one of my questions and helped me draft an email to negotiate and I was able to get an offer increase of $25k/year. I highly recommend Carlos to anyone who is interested in negotiating their salary.

If you have even a little bit of a doubt about this service, I would say don't think much and just go for it! This is an extremely great service with a huge return on investment. Jason was extremely responsive and had quick turn around times for replying to my recruiters emails. His inputs and explanations of how the compensation structures work, how should you negotiate helped me a lot. He also gave tips on how to navigate through the conversations with the recruiter.

All of the sessions with Natalie were amazing! She helped me navigate a complicated situation with two FAANG companies and helped me increase my offer by more than 50K in TC and this was an out-of-band offer for my role and level!!! Natalie went above and beyond and worked with my comfort level and gave me very clear language (word for word) to use with the recruiters both for calls and for emails. She even pre-empted what the recruiter would say to me and she was right every time. She always came prepared to our sessions and was responsive over email and text and answered all of the questions I had. It was clear that she is experienced - she knew exactly how compensation and negotiations work within each company and what the market worth for an individual is based on their background, interviews, competing offers, level, and individual circumstance. I felt confident and prepared walking into each negotiation conversation/email. I would recommend it to anyone, even the strongest of negotiators! We'll be requesting this service, especially Natalie for my spouse's future negotiations too!

Carlos drafted the negotiation email and answered all my follow-up questions. He guided me step by step on how to response to each of the recruiter emails. He is really professional and responsive. The negotiation process could not be so smooth without Carlos! He made my life much much easier. I would highly recommend Carlos to everybody who needs professional advise on offer negotiation.

Carlos was very friendly to talk to and knowledgeable about negotiating for applied/research scientists. He helped me work through my offers and understand the situation and options. We worked together to come up with the plans for negotiation next steps. He even helped draft an email to send to the recruiter. I also appreciate it a lot when he helped with some last-day rescheduling of my sessions to fit my timeline. I successfully negotiated all my three offers under Carlos' help, including one that is already high initially. What's more to me out is that I had more peace of mind in negotiating offers because I understood more about how it works on the other side of the table.

Senior Public Relations Manager

The session was very helpful. I was worried that the consultant would try to drag things out or up-sell me. He did neither. He was concise, but thorough, and his advice ended up getting me an additional $20,000 per year in comp. My only quibble was that he told me he would follow up by emailing me additional research material on comp bands, but I never received it. Regardless, the additional material proved unnecessary, and I was more than pleased with the result.

Salary negotiation is something you do a few times in your career. Levels.fyi uniquely uses recruiters who know the ins and outs to give you an honest approach to getting your best offer. It’s a no brainer and one of the best investments I’ve ever made.

The session was extremely helpful. This was my first time negotiating an offer with a FAANG company and the entire comp structure and associated levels were new to me. Philip guided me through what was a very enlightening session where he spoke about TC ranges for the given level and what i could ask for. He also coached me on negotiation tactics and helped me get the desired offer. Owing to his negotiation coaching sessions i was able to successfully negotiate an offer 33% higher than what i was expecting coming in to these sessions

Extremely helpful! Natalie kept in touch with me throughout my negotiation process and when I had additional interviews with another company. She guided me with salary expectations, and conversation structure to get the expected salary. She advised me to say my salary expectations from the get go, and that worked well for me!
