Need inputs on offer

Nov 29, 2019 19 Comments

Received a verbal offer for Apple Austin SEG HW. Base 190K, Signon Bonus 30K, RSU 315K (over 4 years). Was told by the recruiter that performance bonus 10-12% and 90K RSU refreshers for meeting expectation. YOE 15.

Is this a good offer for 15 years? What level would this be? Anyone know what the top performing bonus and refresher would be?

    Looks like ICT4 level. When I was at Apple they told me that yearly refresher can go up to what I got at time of joining ... it sounds crazy but that is upper limit.

      Are you saying that the max yearly RSU refresher would be 315K/4 in my case?

      In 2015 at joining they gave me 185k stocks that will beat in 4 years. My manager told me that refreshers each year can go up to my joining stocks. Meaning each year I could potentially get up to 185k worth of stocks. I was in team which was doing SPG related stuff so may be that differ from team to team.

    It’s ICT4. I am a SWE and my Bay Area offer is no better than this. It’s a very good offer for Austin.

    Asked Apple for about a 10% over current base but this is what they offered. This becomes a lateral move and so I am having to consider their refreshers and bonus for top contributors to make a decision.
