Apple trying to retain talent with unusual $180,000 bonuses, Bloomberg says

On December 28, 2021, Bloomberg reported that Apple (AAPL) has issued unusual and significant stock bonuses to some engineers in an effort to retain talent, looking to stave off defections to tech rivals such as Facebook owner Meta Platforms (FB, MVRS). Last week, the company informed some engineers in silicon design, hardware, and select software and operations groups of the out-of-cycle bonuses, which are being issued as restricted stock units, according to people with knowledge of the matter. The shares vest over four years, providing an incentive to stay at the iPhone maker, the author notes. The bonuses, which came as a surprise to those who received them, have ranged from about $50,000 to as much as $180,000 in some cases, the publication adds.
