Does Apple rescind offer?

Had onsite with Apple last week for SWE and they want to make me an offer, but wanted me to provide details of my competing offer first so that they have something to work with as a baseline

I gave them the numbers from my other offer, but haven’t heard back yet. Do they rescind offer in this case if the competing offer is too high or if they can’t match it?

TC: 200k
YOE: 7

    A happy update. Recruiter reached out to me today with numbers. Not only was he able to match, but even beat the competing offer. Needless to say, I will be joining Apple soon :)

    Call or send an email to recruiter won’t hurt anything

    “Want to make an offer” is not “an offer”

    So what was the offer? Do you have any numbers to share?

      I received 175k/160k stocks/35k sign on. Debating if I should take it or not. This is for Technical Product Manager Data Science. YoE: 2.5

    If they can't match why do you care? Take the higher offer. Also there is no offer yet so they can't rescind.

    In the exact same situation. I like Apple team much more but their “baseline” is insanely low compared to my other offer. I was asking for TC220k, compete(a well known company) gave me 225k. I highly doubt Apple will give me 200k+ based on my conversation with recruiter.

    Finger crossed

    Same thing happened to me but that is as good as an offer. My competing offer was also higher than what they could offer. So I asked for more as much as I could, got beefy sign on, and now I’m at Apple.

    You should reach out to the recruiter. There are some recruiters that are hard to work with at Apple.

    If they can’t match it would they rescind the chance of giving an offer or would they still give the offer with a lower pay they could afford? I think this is what OP means. @Apple folks, what do you guys think?

    It hasn't been too long since you gave them numbers, I think they will still make you an offer. What is your other offer btw?
