I am currently employed at AMD YOE - 5 TC - 126k. I just got promoted as MTS(L4). I am about to get an offer from Apple. How much should I ask for L4 in Bay Area?
- Apple sopq150-180k depending how badly they want you and how well you did in the interview. Let us know how it goes. Level will be ICT3. Bring a lot of motivation and get ready to work 60-70 hrs per week. Intel folks usually break in the first 6 months cuz they actually gotta work.
- This is very discouraging cuz my base is 160K+20% bonus and I was thinking wether I should try Apple...but doesn’t look like it will be worth it given the WLB and culture
- AMD aiguilleWhat is you current location? Based on your salary, I am assuming you are in Austin. To have the same take home in Bay Area of a 126k base in Austin you should target at least 170k to be even. Assuming that you also want a salary increase for the move, you should target 180k base otherwise the move is not worth. Again, assuming you are in Austin getting 126k.
- Intel / Eng wwwwi have offer from apple after 7 YOE at Intel for non bay area site.
they offered me ic3 with 150k/100k/30k ( base/rsu/bonus)
so for bay area you should really go for 175k plus for base
