Recruiter asked for expectation, I used the glassdoor average of 125 and they came back with

yoe: 0 new grad
115 base/40 rsu/10 bonus

What do you think? It’s low compared to software for sure. I don’t have any competing offers.

    Looks a bit on the low side but given the yoe might be right calibrated. Can probably negotiate more stocks ...

      Make up the competing offer from google or some other company and ask them to beat that. Wait for their response, they will come close to new offer or match.

    ok thanks y’all. I accepted. I just wanted to know if I was getting lowballed. I didn’t have negotiation power and couldn’t get it up. All in all though, I’m a happy camper. Now let’s see if there’s any truth to this Apple hate.

    This is for SEG right? You can push base to 120, bonus to 40~50.

    They could bump it to 50k RSU. Otherwise it’s the standard recommended offer.
