Got similar offers, both are SWE 5th levels Google cloud Seattle and Apple Seattle (apple is ~60k larger over 4 years (not counting potential refreshers), higher base and sign on, but lower on RSU).
Google's culture seem to be more or less known, what about Apple? Work/life balance, oncall, people, refreshes etc

    Why do people above think Apple's (stock) potential is so much greater than Google's?

      I’m not too sure tbh :/
      I always hear teams in the Services organization have a great wlb along with great pay. It’s pretty much Services, ML, and only a handful of teams within Software orgs that pay well

    If you are getting ICT5 at Apple you should negotiate for level 6 (senior staff) at Google

      What is L5 then? Senior? I thought L4 was senior.

    You can buy your own RSU with base obviously. πŸ™„

    60K pre tax over 4 years is close to meaningless.

    Apple does not support w/l balance but looks good on resume and can be a good short term experience

    Stock potential >> google by factor of 2
