In total I have 8 years of experience, 5 years at Apple with 130K + 75K RSU every year + 7k bonus on average. Still stuck at ICT3. Probably i was lowballed when I joined and should have negotiated. I get 8/9 in performance review every year. No sign of promotion still to ICT4.

But regardless I am getting interview calls from other FANG companies. Is it worth to wait or just join another company?

    What are you gaining by staying? You should interview regularly to gauge other opportunities, skills, as well as you market value.

    Just leave and join another company. It’s never worth your time sticking to an employer if there’s no clear path to promotion.

    Yeah I thought of internal transfer but that does not help as it does not come with raise or pay increase. It sucks.

    I love working for Apple but I guess its time to move

      Ouch !!! You should leave
      People would treat you like a 4 outside and your new offers would be based on that so for sure leave
