VMware Offer Evaluation!

Apple a00781
Oct 15 19 Comments

Base - 160k
RSU - 120k over 4 years
Sign On - 20k
Yearly bonus - 12%
TC: 214k
Curr TC: 210k
YOE- 8 years. MTS-3 Palo Alto

I know this doesn't look like an ideal jump! Should I try to negotiate more at VMware or is this the max TC I can get for MTS3.

Appreciate your help in advance :)

    Not sure why you would leave apple for VMware. They have layoffs every year. Also for 4k raise , it’s definitely not worth it

      That’s ok. Not bad. Are you ICT4 or 3? Are you a SWE?

      Ict3. I didn’t get any refreshers n all. Also, I believe comp won’t change by changing teams right?

    Ask for mts 4 and more salary. An increase of 4k in tc is not worth moving.

    Huh? You must be miserable at Apple for even considering this move.

    So, you get an increase of 4K the first year, but then you go down to 194K plus whatever raise you get, do you think it'd be 10% raise in 1 year? Otherwise, aren't you losing money?

      I think my new TC will be 160(base) + 19(bonus)+ 30(Rsu 120/4) + 5(sign on 20/4) = 214. Isn’t it?
