    Do not move with that TC change. You will need a minimum of 250k for a move to be financially worthwhile.

    Or move to Bay area with this offer and then change jobs after a while.

    For those saying go and then look for another job -- why not stay in Boston and look for higher TC? The cap will probably be lower than SV but you still have tons of room.

      Yeah seriously. 8 YOE should get you at least L3 at Wayfair which has L3 top of band at 250k.

    Is this a tech job? If so, yes. You can change jobs after a couple of years. You will have ample opportunities to move that TC up. If you are not in tech, it maybe better to stay back in Boston.
