Switching companies: Apple to Snapchat

Apple / Eng zorrro

Is it crazy? Snap seems unstable but higher risk higher reward early on in life seems to be the way to go

Did anybody do this and care to share their experience?

Background: TC will increase significantly and moving from Bay Area to LA is a huge plus. Downsides:
I will be forfeiting >$150k unvested RSU and I love my team and work at Apple but the Snap team seems equally exciting.

      Tell snap you have $150k in unvested shares and they need to buy you out of those for half or issue you $150k in Snap stock. Facebook buys people out regularly as a signing bonus.

    Stay put, crash is coming. Snap may not survive.

    I think you’re nuts. Why not move to the Apple office in LA?

    I can see wanna be "cool" Indian teens using Snap. There's a growth. Look at Facebook as a website, it's existence is because of India lol.

      Not correct. The earnings per user is high in western countries compared to India. India has users but not revenue.
