How is the work culture at Apple? How are the salaries in Apple in comparison to Msft? Is Apple considered a better brand? I'm SD2 with total comp of around 208k ( base, Bonus etc) in Seattle. Wondering if I should explore opportunities At AAPL?

    I can definitely say you will make more money at comparable level at Apple.

      Level 4 and in under rare conditions level 5.

      What level do you join as graduate? And typically how long does it take to become ICT4? I joined MSFT at 59 and became 62 in 4 1/2 years. Trying to do level comparison.

      4 years sounds right to go from 3 to 4. Most folks join at 3.

    How many years of experience and how many at MS? Can you share your promotion velocity, if applicable?

    IMHO, it totally depends on above.

    Have never worked at MSFT but worked at Apple for 4 years. Based on the equity I see people claim on here, I can safely say that Apple pays better.
