Already signed an offer, questioning my decision
TLDR: would you pick thoughtspot or Microsoft? Which do you believe will help me develop as an engineer/pay more? Can I get out of an offer I already signed?
Long story short, I signed Microsoft in SF because I felt like I could learn a lot working from a smaller office in a big company for the cloud & AI group. I felt like it’s a better financial opportunity. And I felt like I’d learn a lot working for cloud & AI in a company that’s starting to focus a lot more on that.
However, now I’m considering ThoughtSpot (a unicorn startup). I believe it’ll be a better financial opportunity and allow me to develop skills across a large technical stack very quickly. Thoughtspot does a lot of cool stuff and working at a startup I think will give me the opportunity to learn a lot about that cool stuff (particularly NLP). And given the company IPOs I’ll be making much more $$$ than Microsoft.
What do I do?
