Asking for a friend. She has a hard time deciding between the SWE New Grad position at Google Ads and Apple Siri Rotational program.

She has a background in machine learning and would love to work on projects with a blend of software engineering and applied machine learning.

Total compensation for each.
Google: 125K/115K/50K
Apple: 135K/150K/50K

Any advice or suggestion is truly appreciated. Thanks!!!

    Show Apple's offer to Google's recruiter and tell him to match it

      She tried but google asks to see compete offer letter (google’s number already has gone through comp team). Is this typical? From my own experience two months ago, a verbal compete offer was enough, not sure if anything changes or if it’s just the recruiter’s technique.

      Apple wouldn’t give offer letter unless she verbally accepts it, so the situation is a bit awkward...

    Does she want food for thought or food for free?

    I would pick apple at equal comp, and would definitely pick apple at higher comp.

      Its a rotational program, U might not stay in the same team. Even though considering the benefits and WLB google is a very good option.

    Google offers are typically higher than what your friend got, apple offers are much lower. Food for thought

    Whichever one has more ML, since that’s her interest.

    Siri sounds more relevant and suited to interests. Tc also better. Can’t go wrong in the choice though .

    What are the refreshers like at Apple? Also, lateral movement is easy here
