Would love to get some pointers on what the average RSU stock grant is for Cisco Director of Engineering new hires? Here at Apple I get around 40K/year worth of stock. Thanks in advance.

      Buddy, it is all about your product group and how close you are with your manager, I have seen a guy at grade 6 (BS degree, joined in June as Grade 4, promoted to Grade 6 around April.)

      The employee hasbbeen getting 1000 shares of RSU every year all the way up to grade 10, (4-6-8-10 in 3 years and then promoted to TL one year after that, joined as 22 undergrade and Tech Lead by 26)👍

      G10 some get rsu each cycle. G11 it's more. G12 it's almost all.

      Even the g10/11 oriented cycle is only up to 20% of g10 and there is a min grant size so they can't peanut butter them. They should be tartgetted at top performers but some groups use them to address retention risks or folks lagging in base pay.

      Fair enough, I know that there isn't really RSU for G10s in our group. (What the "manager" said)
