    No, you need them to level you up to Ict5 for that

      I think 575 even at ict5 would be at tail end of high

    • Apple Tim'sCuck
      Yes, I agree it will be very high even for ict5

    No way. Let us know what happens tho. I'd be surprised if they cross 350k tbh.

      Would they really expect me to get a paycut?

      Yes. They've also been known to say they wont compete with google and fb. Argument is that refreshers are higher at apple. Let me know what they offer, im curious. Im hoping they change their view in comp, its not very competitive last i heard.

    Even fb and G would have trouble offering 575 TC at E5/L5, their senior levels. Even snap L4 doesn’t offer 575 TC.

    U would need to interview for the staff/principal level if u want that TC. 575 is on the high end even for fb E6 and Amazon L7, but doable.

    Let us know what they come back with tho.

    Anything is possible. However, YMMV.

    Very hard unless you are a subject matter expert probably reporting to a director and they really want you. You will probably be expected to set direction for a specific org or build some critical piece from scratch. Don’t think they will offer ICT4 to someone like that.. You can probably get 400TC in Siri for ICT4, otherwise 300-350.

    Possible TC at ict6. But getting ict6 is not possible.

    Apple IC4 is similar to Google/FB Level 5. Level 5 comp is usually 300k to 350k. I'm curious where you currently work that your TC is 450k+ and you're only Level 5.

    Don't mistake initial grants or grant appreciation for TC. It's not, it's a one-time deal, refreshers are your TC. Also don't confuse "stock options" they're zero.

      Are you E7? What’s the rough range for this level?

    If you get this high salary without any stock appreciation in your current job. I think you worth it. Paper money from non public company doesn’t count. Otherwise, the best you will get is around 350k. Please prove me wrong.

    He is looking for about 1m+ initial rsu grant. I never see such an apple offer. That’s like director level in our department.

    What’s the advantage of money increase if your not doubling it at least? Your climbing up logarithmically shorter rungs if a ladder.
