Just received an offer from Apple and wanted to check whether they gave me a competitive package.

ICT3 HW
Base: 150k
RSU: 105k / 4 years
Signing Bonus: 20k

YOE: MS + 8 years (but only 5 years are relevant to the role)

Before we even started negotiating, the recruiter mentioned right off the bat that the RSU and signing bonus was already max for my level and they can't go any higher. I was able to negotiate a little bit on the base but even that wasn't much. I don't have much leverage since I don't any counteroffers.

    Your too old to play the waiting game / wear Apple as a name brand. They are giving you a crappy offer, because you are terribly unskilled. If that’s the best you got, it’s not too bad compared to most people.

      What do you mean too old? I'm still under 30. Finished college a bit early and worked for a few years in another field. I didn't like it so I switch fields. Hence, only 5 years of relevant experience.

      Take the offer then, brand is good for under 30. The pay/loc is only so-so, but best part the branding. ⭐️⭐️🙏🏻

    Take it. Your next offer will be better especially with Apple on your resume.
