Apple offer rsu price

Amazon Shaa
May 4, 2018 31 Comments

I got an offer from apple, rsu is 200k, just wondering how do they get stock price to calculate the amount, the price at the day i accept the offer, or when they decide hire me? Or even the price of last two month(some time range)? This makes difference, because their stock recently climb more than 10%, this could lead to my rsu stock count decrease.

      It depends on your team and how valuable they are to begin with. My initial grant was 105k and my first refresher was 65k with only a 6/9. I expect much more this year now that I actually know what I’m doing.

      Confused about the refresher...

      Kbfgui544f@ when you say: “first refresher was 65K”... was it to vest over 4 years? If so, you got yearly increase of only like $17K ($65/4) which I don’t know if it is that great. :/

      65k refresher over 4 years is still more than google L3 tho right? Less than L4 for sure tho

      Not sure about Goog comparison, but a $17K per year increase ($65K over 4 years refresher) doesn’t sound like it is something crazy to be proud of — no? If your base is, say, $170K the $17K is almost even less than the year end bonus. :/ I am not saying it is low, but I am just saying if it is that great

      But then you’ll get another one next year and tour current grant keeps vesting.

      Yeah, a 60-100k refresh every year compounds pretty quickly..

    Closing price on the day the grant is approved by the board. Sometime within a couple of months after you start.

      OP
      By this "within a couple months after you start" You mean it is calculated around vested day price?
      May 4, 2018
    • NIO / Eng Iysiys4515
      No. They just generally get approved quarterly (roughly), so there is normally some lag between your hire date and grant date.

      Also, why aren’t you asking your recruiter this?

      Mind sharing what position/experience you’d be joining with?

      Actually the board meets around the 15 th .. so its set based on the price of 15 of the month u joined.. if u join before 15 or next month 15th

      That is a very detailed answer, nice! My concern is recently appple stock has a big jump because of quaterly revenue, i guess i missed this, my stock number will be based on the already high stock value. I like amazon way, tell you the unit. For the question, i have about 6 to 7 year experience, this is quality postion in apple, i am currently an sdet

      You’ve just figured out why they started making grants based on a dollar value and not a number of shares. ;-)

    Mine hit one month after starting. It’s also worth noting that the 6 month vesting cycle starts on the date of the award

      6 month vesting? Recruiter told me it is vested every month
      May 5, 2018
    • Juniper Doomed!
      Nope, 6 month vesting. But good point @CaptnCook
