Need advise ASAP as the Apple HR is asking me for salary expectations by COB today,

I have an L6 offer at Amazon with $160 base + 270 sign-on (1st yr) + about 300 RSU bringing 1st yr comp to $460K in seattle.

What level in Apple is equivalent to L6? What is a good comp to expect from Apple for bay area?

This is a hardware position. 18 yoe.

      Congrats! Honestly, I don’t think anyone here will be able to give u advice. It will be difficult for Apple to match since their initial rsu are low.

    Whats your l6 year 1 vs year 2 signon? Max L6 is under 425k, so your numbers are incorrect.

      Skeptical but if true, congrats. A lot more than my L6 offer. :)
