Apple Annual Bonus and Refresh

Apr 6, 2018 52 Comments

How much is Apple annual refresh and bonus?

I got an offer $195k/year $250k RSU over 4 years and $50K sign on bonus.

That is significantly lower than my Amazon $185k base and $220k RSU annually.

Would adding the Apple bonus and refresh be enough to match amazon?

    Apple refresh is insane compare to amazon.
    You got that 220k rsu per year at amazon not because amazon offered you that amount, but because amzn appreciation over past two years.

      Sure Apple probably values him higher, but OP stands to miss a lot of stock they deserve if they leave now. OP should get better offer, or stay at amazon and revisit FAANG after 2 years.

      Valid point. Unless OP is looking for more than comp

      Then its upto me whether to take the offer or not. BTW, two months ago interviewed with Google and they definitely down leveled me. Even offered 20% less base than what i make. So i denied the offer. Also told the recruiter ‘do you expect me to take this?’

      Yeah I agree with you lol. I would do the same. Not sure why you're saying we spread false info, this happens every day to candidates that interview at every company (not getting level/comp you want). We're just telling OP not to take the job (wouldn't matter which of FAANG it is tbh).

    All who are saying that OP got under leveled by Apple does not know anything at-all about Apple levels. OP is getting ICT5, which is highest level Apple offers to external candidates. Let me remind you that the highest level at Apple is ICT6, and it takes significant impact by a person to get there. So can you explain me how OP got under leveled? Please dont spread false information. Like they say- ‘little knowledge is more dangerous than no knowledge’.

    You don’t get 220 annually. It’s 5/15/40/40.

      You got $550k RSU (at time of offering) Or is this because Amazon stock went up so much over the last 3 years?

      Amazon stock went up. But even without it going up, the total comp offer is slightly lower than amazon initial offer.

    for Ict4 refresher is the range 60-160k. For Ict5 let’s assume it is 90k-200k. You can calculate the rest

      Thanks for the advice. This is what I am thinking also. It sounds like with refresh I won’t be at the same level till another 2 years

    250k over 4 years is ridiculously low for ict5 swe. It should map to E6 at Facebook/Google where you can easily get 800k+
