Best way to maximize compensation

I am in the US for a maximum of 4 years and my aim is to maximize earnings, not to build relationships in a company etc. With that in mind, should I look for roles in startups or larger brands which will give me stock, or a pre-ipo for RSUs? What is the best strategy?

    To truly maximize for your totality of 4 years regardless of future earnings. Leetcode hard and jump to a new company each year and take in that sweet sign on bonus.

    • This. Each time you switch make sure you have multiple offers at hand so you can negotiate. Try to interview with a different subset of companies each time

      Thanks @codecov! I suppose I should add that I'm in data science and analytics world, but I guess the advice still holds.
