      Thanks for replying. Does 120K yearly refresher in AMP sound right to you. I am asking because they don’t want to mention that in the offer.

      120k vesting over 4 years is more of a norm among refreshers.

      I haven't been at Apple long enough to see the refreshers so can't comment on that.

      It’s not unreasonable to expect $100-120k. Just remember it’s over 4 years and not per year. You likely won’t get the on hire grant to be much higher without a killer competitive offer. Just 2 years ago they were handing out $160-200k. So you got a good grant for Apple anyways.

    In my experience refresher is commonly 120k-150k per year with 2 year vesting periods

    You should've asked for more RSU. TC is low for your YOE, but I don't know your experience, so can be fine. Anyway, congrats with offer.

      Thanks. They lowballed me with 220K initial RSU offering, could only push them that high as I did not have a counter offer.

      Sorry to hear that. I am really not a fan with such a low-ball strategy from Apple.
