Wanted to get your opinion about an offer from apple. For a hardware position, phd w/4 yoe: 160k base, 115k RSU, 25k sign on. Is this average or low ball?

      I bet it differs from team to team. And also how urgent they or you are. If you need to move faster, you could ask them to? Apple’s large and conservative company so it’s given that they’d move slowly.

      Agree. I accepted because I was in rush to get started. Negotiation takes time and need a good competing offer.

    Get a competing offer. Friend had competing offer from TSLA that had 300k rsu over 4 years and Apple matched that, he was also PHD with 3-4 YOE. Base was around 180k with 70k sign on I believe. Number became way higher due to competing tesla offer

      It was for Hardware asic team or something to do with power delivery. He had to show the offer over video chat to get the match cause the recruiter didn’t believe the numbers initially.
