    Is 230k base at Cohesity ? What is your YOE?
    I would say Cohesity for career growth as it is a small company.

    Again lot depends on team and work.

      You are getting downlevelEd at LinkedIn. Not easy to grow here especially in certain orgs. If I were you, I would take chances with Cohesity

    Try to get LinkedIn to match VMware's offer. The way I see it, web development will be of secondary importance at Cohesity & VMware, & you will probably learn less than what you would if you were working in the core storage/virtualization/networking domain.

      Thanks for the reply. One doubt I have there is . In VMware and cohesity I will be working with angular and node vs in LinkedIn I will be in ember.js which is not widely adopted by all companies. So in long run if I start looking for change again how tough it would be ?

      Sorry, idk enough about Js to answer that. Most prominent tech companies usually aren't too particular about language/tech stack experience.

      Don't let a bunch of frameworks dictate your career. If you don't like to work with that framework, that's valid.

      ^ This. If you've considered everything else and are deciding based on the framework, decide based on $ instead.

    If 230 is your base at Cty, it’s a very good offer; very few folks in Cty make 230 ;)

      That’s quite modest evaluation. Sales number went up significantly since last round and company expanded into SaaS, BaaS and software only model, if we keep hitting the target I would not be surprised the evaluation go up 3-4 times on the next round

      😂 You are too optimistic.
      Cohesity is not going IPO until 2021 at least.
      Don’t know what will happen till then
