Apple SWE 1YOE
TC 175k

To maximize TC, should I start interviewing with FAANG & unicorns already?

Will FAANGU offer new grad positions or is it possible to negotiate a higher position?

    You need to show sustained performance and work to progress and succeed. Don’t focus your energy just on jumping around too soon for salary gains, change of job wouldn’t get you higher position, you need to earn it with your performance.

      Let me be clear. Don’t focus on you being lowballed. Life isn’t always fair. Focus on your performance so that they have to give you what you deserve. At such early career, don’t focus on salary but on work and learnings. More you learn, more you grow.

      This guy is right. Someone will always earn better than you. With refresher your salary will catch up. Focus on learning stuff. At same time let your manager know you feel your salary is low.

      Faacebook & God Son: Thanks. I am also dettered by all blind posts bashing IS&T. Don't understand why though, but it is not respected anywhere. Any thoughts?

      Nobody outside apple knows much about Is&t. If your work is good stay otherwise change. I hear is&t is dominated by 1 country rank and file plus leadership role. Is that true?

      I am afraid IS&T's image would haunt me back later in career. Project is good, involves significant amount of ML.

      I don't care about country but there are many contractors/contractor-converts.

      What’s the average stock refresh at google. I will start. I have been getting 160 to 180. I’m an ICT 4.

    Your next step is to stay put and earn a promo. Then think about switch.

    Don't be greedy, your TC is very good for 1 YOE. Jumping this early may increase your short term TC, but can hurt you long term. If you like the team and you learn, stay and try to get promotions.

      Good point. Don't see many people respecting IS&T. What would you do?

      Are you SWE? Do you have skills to work in other department? Internal transfer maybe, but if you get a promotion first at your current team, much better

      How do I tell my manager that I want to switch teams/org? I suspect it might lead to animosity, if the new team rejects for some reason.

      It's better to ask apple people. I'd create a new post with that title.
