How to tell manager my pay is not at par with Apple?
Hello! I got a verbal offer from Apple a year ago which went nowhere because the req was not approved by the Sr VP at Apple. They said they hired someone else before me who got the req. It was a bummer to me as it happened after i got the verbal offer and negotiated. Anyway, I have moved on to Amazon from Intel (didnt bother to update my blind account login). My Amazon pay in 2019 was a little less than what Apple offered me verbally in 2018. Recently the recruiter from the same group from Apple poached me saying we are getting a req. and we would like to consider you, are you interested. I am at Amazon since half a year and have excellent relationship and support from my coworkers. I am very happy. However, i am not happy that my pay is little less than what Apple offered me (about 10k less). How to bring this up to manager? Shall i go in to Apple for interview and try getting a written offer? I am also bit upset with them for wasting my time last year but I saw these kind of things happened at Intel too where req wasn't approved even if candidate was excellent. Thoughts? I honestly can talk anything with my current manager. He is a great person, but i am not sure how to get the raise i would like. At Amazon we get sign on bonus and stocks esting over 4 yeaes and from my understanding pay will be flat for 4 years. I do have great work life balance thanks to my manager and supportive coworkers at Amazon. I also like that i can work on multiple areas and develop breath of skills. I am hesitant to risk it and look like a grasshopper in my resume. Though Apple is intriguing. However I do not want them to waste my time again.
