Jun 4, 2018 19 Comments

Expecting an offer from VMWare for SW Automation engineer. I do not have any data on what vmware offers as TC. I am thinking of
$130 base, $20k sign-on and $200k rsu. Is it do-able? If not then what is realistic?

PS- asking for a friend.
PS- please dont say tree-fiddy.

    OP I've never been more serious when saying that VMWare is the single worst company I have ever seen in my life. I have 8 years of experience and have worked and interviewed at a lot of different companies. Never have I seen such a depressing workplace with such incompetent people. Some of which are not fit to work at Wendy's. If your friend is not a moron - save him.

      But actually, just all big companies, the work environemnt is highly team dependent.

      I've actually had the opposite experience here after working at 3 other big companies.

    70-120k RSU over 4 yrs is the general ballpark for that experience level, for an external candidate. You can reach the higher end if you have competing offers.

      Thank you. Is $135K base doable? What about sign-on?

      Depends on the leveling. If it's MTS 3 then yes

      Raise your base, lower your RSU. They won’t pay what you’re asking.

    Why are you leaving Apple?

    Have you tried applying for other jobs internally at Apple?
