Refreshers (Based on performance)

    Can do better. Ask for 220 base and 500 rsu. If you don’t have have competing offers there’s very little chance they will pay that, though. Also, bonuses can be 20% sometimes.

      I rejected Apple when they offered me 230 K Base and 650 K RSUs. OP please ask 750 K minimum

      Ha ha , pls don’t ask for 500k , it will be bad for you . 200-220k is probably the highest for initial stock grant , for ic4. It’s a good offer . Base and stock could be a little higher 10k or so but the refreshers will make up for it .

    Ignore the trolls here, this is a high end offer for ICT4 -- so you more or less have to take it or leave it

    I accepted the above offer eventually, I think I could have increased my base a little but I'm happy with the team, HM and overall TC.

    Greed is never-ending, happiness is what you seek!

    I was recently negotiating with Apple for ICT4, and was at 195/450 with a 15% bonus before I decided to accept a different offer.

      Which are you saying is a troll post? Certainly not mine.

      Yup, this is not in the troll range. However, Apple compensations for the same level vary a lot across teams - and folks from other teams might feel hard to digest some of the recent offers specially from JG’s org.

      OP
      The recruiter said it's standard for ICT4 and won't budge on that as refreshers are usually very generous.

      How much unvested RSUs are you leaving behind at Autodesk? Ask for twice that
