I was a little frustrated with my initial offer from apple and I declined . Was hoping for an ICT4 role was offered 3. According To the Recruiter it’s not based on years of experience but rather on accomplishments? Told them I should at least be towards the latter half of an IC3 in terms of comp below is their offer . im currently an IC3 at my job right now about to be promoted to IC4 by next year. Anyone can provide any advice on the offer? i have a feeling maybe they'll bump my base by 5 to 10k next call and maybe 125 for RSU. I asked for 250k in RSU but was told thats too much.

Total YOE 8
3.5 in current role related to position previus role was more sysadmin related

Base 150k
RSU 100k
Bonus 10% of base
20k Sign on

    Short answer - low. My friend just join Apple with 180k /250k/20k/ and 15% bonus written on offer letter

    Long ans:

    ask Apple recruiter how will she know your accomplishment in past job 🙄.. anyways I had same offer in 2017( 7 yrs exp). I had competing offers with 35k more base 150k more rsu and 25k more sign-on bonus. 2 reason I choose Apple:
    1. Recruiter promised that they will promote me to ICT4 next year based on performance... but never happened after 2 years left the job.
    2. Apple brand
    also, if 10% bonus is not written assume 0. Which org it is?

    In my honest opinion, if you still are interviewing than I would recommend go for other company.

      130k 15% bonus and 15k RSU per year but also in Los Angeles cheaper cost of living. Up for a promotion beginning of next year thinking I should just use the offer as leverage for more money now
