    Lol. Dude, GNS is IS&T. You should read more about them.

      Plenty of product teams’ prefer to manage the overall system orchestration Including the network on their own. Because IS&T engineering quality is notoriously shit. Same reason other managers in non-IS&T orgs just ignore internal candidates from IS&T. There may be a few candidates who made the move, but internal transfer policies at Apple doesn’t make it easy.

    One of the best Apple offers I have seen for your yoe. Do you have competing offers?

      Definitely negotiate. Search for previous posts on blind but this offer is close to FB and G offers for L4 with 5 yoe

      Good to know. Thanks. I am wrapping up interviews with G/F, so I wonder if G/F can bid higher.

      Yes, they do. However fb has a cap for E4. It's 300k RSUs, 160 base and $100k sign on. It cannot go beyond that. Getting $100k sign on is really hard but not impossible.

      Sounds like the TC is about the same. So I can ask for more sign on probably. Thanks for the info

      Really? This is my first year at Apple and I got higher offer than FB for the same role. My friend at FB said people at Apple got more refresh than she does. We shall see then.

      My bad, you mentioned it above. Congrats and how were the interviews? Leetcode and design or anything else?
      Jun 6, 2018
    • New / Eng DarkFlame
      Thanks. Leetcode covers most of the coding. Got two interesting hard questions not on leetcode though, a bit math and looks more like google type question. System design covers multiple different large scale networking problems. Makes sense since they are the networking team.

      Op, when you say leetcode, do you mean Apple tagged ones?
      Jun 10, 2018
    • New / Eng IlIll
      I believe Apple doesn’t really have a collection of problems like as g/fb. Their team just ask coding questions they know. But most of them can be found on leetcode.

      What level ict4 ?
      Jun 5, 2018
    • New / Eng DarkFlame
      Not sure about the internal level. I only know it’s a sr SWE position

    Does apple gives big stock grant with ict4 to ict5 promotion? If so, roughly how much?
    Jun 17, 2018 2
    • Apple Gg56fh
      If promoted to ICT5 at review time (October), you might get a 200k or 250k grant vs the 160k that they’d usually give if you were still an ICT4 with 8/9. In SWE (Cupertino). Not sure about Services, HW, SEG or IST orgs or other locations.

      Thanks, I should have mentioned that I am looking for SEG org in Austin.

    It’s a good offer. But I would suggest to negotiate your RSU to 320k if possible .

      Highly unlikely I can make them to. Probably more luck on fb/g with this number.
