    Project manager is IC therefore you make less than SWE, but I still think you're trolling

      I dont think that would matter much. I have been in SWE as an engineer then transferred to be an EPM.

      If you transferred to EPM don't expect same salary as SWE

    Depends. Do you live in a normal cost of living city like Nashville? Then you're rich.
    Do you live on the west coast? Then you're broke.

    75k Apple stock = $14 million. Who the fuck voted that you’re underpaid!

      $75k per year? Then you’re fine. Your TC is $221k. You maybe lower compared to Software engineers but not many PMs or TPMs get paid much more, unless it’s google or fb.

    Apple doesn't pay EPM much. Jump somewhere else

    You can do way better on base & RSU outside. Give it a shot applying for other roles within Apple and negotiate.

      Internal moves within apple is lateral regardless. Not even talk of negotiations

      Hmm...if you love Apple too much...go out for a year & come back at a higher role & TC.
