Contemplating if PayPal to workday is good move to make

Have an offer from workday, contemplation if it's good to switch from PayPal.

Pros
- PayPal work is not that interesting.
- Know executives in workday, so high level visibility.
- stock refresh might be higher.
- PayPal has yearly layoffs which causes anxiety.
- Team and work in workday is more to my liking.

Cons
- Same level position in workday.
- PayPal stock is really growing while workday might have reached its peak.

Workday offer
Base - 175k
RSU - 150K
Sign on - 30k

I know my thoughts is saying "grass is always greener in the other side" but if people from either @PayPal or @workday can chime in with real world experience I would appreciate it ?

    The moment you said pp work is not interesting, you have an answer for yourself! If I were you, I would hav chosen satisfying work over pay, contacts, stocks!

    What position and team is this for? Also. Workday has pretty good WL balance. Not sure how it is over at PP.

    If you know the executives this will help you in getting interesting work however workday is not on the cutting edge of technology. We are 5 years or more behind. We are a back office, non consumer facing product so our customers don’t really crave the cutting edge stuff (although they might say they do).

    PayPal is a globally recognized brand. 8/10 people I talk to knows what PayPal is and they are interested to hear what I'm working on. Cannot say the same for workday. They neither have the brand for pushing the tech boundary nor do they have the brand for being a strong product. Sounds like a serious downgrade. And your Pros are not really pros because the same thing can happen at workday:
    1. Being put on a team that doesn't so interesting work
    2. Workday is a few bad earnings report from having layoffs (if they are not already doing that)
    3. Most new teams seems exciting from an outside perspective

    If I was in your position I will not switch. It doesn't make any sense to me.
