Hi All,

I am currently employed at AMD YOE - 5 TC - 126k. I just got promoted as MTS(L4). I am about to get an offer from Apple. How much should I ask for L4 in Bay Area?

    150-180k depending how badly they want you and how well you did in the interview. Let us know how it goes. Level will be ICT3. Bring a lot of motivation and get ready to work 60-70 hrs per week. Intel folks usually break in the first 6 months cuz they actually gotta work.

      Ive seen the level of a lot intel candidates... pretty poor. 1 yr at Apple would translate to ~3+ at intel depending on the candidate. So you sir, are in the shit pit.

  • This is very discouraging cuz my base is 160K+20% bonus and I was thinking wether I should try Apple...but doesn’t look like it will be worth it given the WLB and culture

  • What is you current location? Based on your salary, I am assuming you are in Austin. To have the same take home in Bay Area of a 126k base in Austin you should target at least 170k to be even. Assuming that you also want a salary increase for the move, you should target 180k base otherwise the move is not worth. Again, assuming you are in Austin getting 126k.

    • OP said TC 126k and not base. Is it after promotion to MTS or before?

  • Intel unlucky _
    I had the offer of 125k base , 96k rsu + 30k sign on for 3.5 years experienced at Austin. I think you should target 210k + joining bonus

    i have offer from apple after 7 YOE at Intel for non bay area site.
    they offered me ic3 with 150k/100k/30k ( base/rsu/bonus)

    so for bay area you should really go for 175k plus for base
