Chances of Google matching my unvested RSUs from Apple? ~500k

Nov 7, 2017 26 Comments

Been working at Apple for 4 years. Just got hiring committee approval from Google. The recruiter says I got really positive feedback from the committee. About to go into the team matching phase. I’m ICT4 at Apple with a good chance of ICT5 next year. What are the chances Google will match my unvested RSUs? ~500k

    I’ve always wondered this as well. If companies are not willing to match unvested stock, what is the employee’s incentive to leave? (Other than a salary bump)

    Somewhere between 0% to 100 %

      This is incorrect.

      I was second guessing myself, I am sorry, I threw your poop for a loop

    Unvested RSUs are a useless metric. Compare only the TC

      As long as you stay one year, it really doesn't matter

      Agree, the unvested rsu doesn’t really matter. You should only look at what your TC will be by the end of next year at Apple or Google. The breakdown doesn’t matter. It is very unlikely that they offer you a total TC less than what you currently get if the feedback was positive.

    Should be fine if you get T5

    It's a reasonable request. I know Google employees who got matched 1M in unvested equity.

  • On a side note, how much have to accumulated in last four years. I am on the same boat with unvested around 400 for 3 years

      Use levels.fyi to map between Apple and Google

      I thought levels.fyi was a typo until I decided to google it. Nice resource! https://www.levels.fyi

    They can easily match $500k at L4.

      Based on what I’ve read here it seems an ICT4 at Apple would be offered an L5 at Google. Is that accurate?

      Not sure about the level mapping--it might be L5, I have no idea about that--but I know of L4 offers that have well-exceeded the $500k number for RSUs. Google seems to be very willing to throw stock at you while being very stingy with the levels.

    I have known cases where they matched even 900K unvested stocks for T4. So I wouldn't worry.
