    Highest paying company and most beautiful woman is a myth. There's always a better one out there.

    MS with 6yoe making 250k TC? I don't think so unless you are some kind of genius.

      Nvidia guy has competing offers and negotiate real hard to get 220k TC with MS + 6 YoE. And you're telling me a lot of guys in apple can do that. Who do I trust? Someone who has actual offer or?

      Well for eg, let’s consider FB. The base at FB is 160-180k + 10% Bonus + 180k/4 stocks + 20-25k joining. This is easy 240-250k offer.

      I’m pretty sure apple and google can match the above.

      MS+6yoe I am not too sure if those # you provided are accurate.

    Go out there and interview at these companies, get back to us if you do land that 250k+ TC. If you can, good for you, if you can't, that's normal. I personally don't know any HW guys with MS + 6 yoe making that much, above 200k yes but not more than 250k.

      I agree with ali_mama. But, according to hmmgee above getting this at apple is “easy” and everyone gets it. Dont know if hmmgee is trolling?

    250K base is pretty high for hardware. I was at a startup and was getting 240K (248K by the time i left), and was told that if I hit 250K they would need approval from their board of directors.

      Yes, going to Apple. I am in system hardware design not ASIC.

      Congrats it's a decent offer but not quite 250k
      Sep 25
    • NVIDIA / Eng vNv
      Lol yeah I know its not quite 250k. But even to get this, I had to negotiate a lot after doing the interviews well. So I am not sure if you will be able to 250k unless you are highly specialized in some niche area

      220k + 12% bonus is pretty good.
      Is 12% fixed or will it depend on companies performance as well?

    I know Apple, FB and G can pay close to 250k. I’m trying to understand what other companies can give this.

    What % of apple HW employees make $250k + TC with 6 yoe? I am guessing that % would be very less. Let me know if i am wrong
