Recently accepted a swe offer at apple at ICT3 level. I have 6+ YoE so I know ICT3 is a bit low, but I took it anyways because the offer was a lot higher than my current TC and the position seems interesting.

Wondering how long it would take to get to ICT4? Recruiter said I was on the higher end of ICT3.

Current TC: 175k
Apple ICT3 TC: 230k

    6yoe is not low at all for ict3. You’d never get ict4 at that yr of work exp unless you have something exceptional in industry. Will take 3-6yrs hard labor.

      They actually give ICT3 to some freshgrad with Master degree so it prob depends on which org you are in. I also knew some ICT4 folks with 5 YOE at Blind.

    175k is not high end for ICT3. Are you factoring in RSUs grant? Can you decompose the TC? Also, what org is this for?

    Promotions are harder than interviews imo

    I would say it is all about the money. If you get bigger tc, you will get ICT4.
