Does Apple pay poorly compared to other FAANGs for Entry-Level roles?

Dec 19, 2019 7 Comments

As the title says. Do entry level engineers make lesser at Apple than other FAANGs at average?

Not considering exerienced hires because the TC range is has a wider spectrum the higher up you go

    It depends largely on org. If you are in ML/AI you will be compensated very well, but not if you’re in IS&T.

    My new grad (BS) comp package beat high end comp that FB and Google offer for my area, and my org has better refreshers than FB/Goog. But I have experience that isn’t the norm for new grad.

    But others I know got offers that were hourly with $150k on-paper TC in Cupertino. It really depends. Apple never felt very open to new grads to me (there is a preference for experience or people with PhD) and you are expected to up your game to keep up with everyone else if you join as one.

    No. The smile words how apple goes is .."what are your other competing offers and we will beat it". One of my friwnd had Amazon, Walmart, Oracle (highest payer) and Cisco . And apple simply surpasses all of them in total compensation.
    Leaving out their really really gracious RSU refreshers..but all for full-time employers

    • Apple waited until my other offers and beat my highest one. Google/Facebook wouldn’t even compete with it.

      That being said the culture and benefits are obviously not as “techy.”

    Standard package for new grads at apple is 115-125 base, 50-80 rsus over 4 years, 10-30k sign on bonus, and then some amount for relocation if applicable. I think comp is comparable if not a tad better than amazon and msft, but worse than google and quite a bit worse than FB. Only exception is if you're in ML in which they uplevel you. Most ML new grads have TCs similar to FB, Lyft, etc and as previously mentioned, we get pretty decent refreshers depending on team.

    Not sure about entry level. It is better than Amazon. Maybe comparable to Google/Facebook. Initial stock is low but refresh rsu make up for it. I don’t think there is a ton of entry level people at Apple.
