Deciding between Bloomberg, Microsoft and series B Bay Area Startup
I am a CS Masters graduating in May 2019. Please find details of offers below:
Microsoft (Seattle)- 109k base, 0-20% target bonus (any idea on what to expect after 1st year), 100k stocks over 3.5 years, 30.5k (sign-on + relocation)
Bloomberg (NYC)- 142k base, 18k target bonus, 30k (sign-on + relocation)
Series B Mountain View Startup - 150k base, 20k relocation, 10,000 stock options at strike price of 65 cents a stock.
The team at Bloomberg should be applied NLP. There is a bootcamp for around 2 months which is an opportunity for team matching. In microsoft, its azure. In the startup, the role will be that of a software engineer involving building data-driven backend applications.
