Rf test engineer, 10 yr related experience, jumping from Apple to Google.

Current pay at Apple:
140k base salary,
100k rsu/year

Planning to ask for 200k base + match unvested rsu. Is it reasonable deal?

Thanks

    200k base if a salary for L6 engineers, which at Google is already the at the very top of the pyramid. If this is not the level you got after your interviews, it's not reasonable. They have a lot of flexibility on RSUs and sign on but not on base salary.
    And just to be clear, "years of experience" is not that relevant for leveling. I know lots of people with 10+ years who are level 4.

      Years of experience doesn’t matter. I am Senior/L64 at Microsoft.

      Does your rsu include the unvested rsu from previous company?

    Hmm, being a bit critical though why do you think google would pay you a bump of 40 percent in your base salary? You might want to negotiate more on rsu since they have more room on that.

    200k base is unlikely

    Also for l5 you can ask for more gsu, shoot for 500-600k grant

    Assuming you get l5, you can ask for 180. (Assuming te ladder pays the same as swe)
