[Apple] Is this a good offer?

Nov 17, 2019 14 Comments

Current TC: 42L/India, YOE: 4

Have an offer from Apple for ICT3. They matched my current tc using base + rsu and are giving another 12L in the form of sign on bonus (spread over 2 years) + relocation bonus + yearly bonus most of which would be exhausted after the first two years. So my tc, technically would be almost same after year 2.

I brought this up with the recruiter and she countered saying Apple gives refreshers stocks every year which should increase your tc for the year 2 and onwards.

Just wanted to understand if this is standard or is the recruiter low balling me? I would ideally like my base or rsu to be increased but the recruiter kept insisting your new tc is already 30% higher than original tc so another bump would be very difficult. What are my options?

Is this how hikes are usually given when making a switch?

    Give a break down of your education background, role and TC for folks to help evaluate as per India markets.

    But yes Apple does have a good refresh stock bonus for good performers.

    Please make sure it isn't IS&T.
    About stock refreshers it's true.
    They do have really good refreshers.

    I think this is standard offer. ICT3 at Apple can earn up to 65 lakhs.

    The TC seems about median for ICT3 range. I know a friend in Hyderabad with slightly higher TC, but also 6 yoe from another faang
