    Thanks for ur reply.

    No! I’m little concerned about GFM stock options. What ‘ll happen if they cannot make it to IPO? Is there a way to evaluate the stock options?

      Haha take what they say the valuation is, and multiply by 0.05? That to say: stock options for a company that has not yet gone public are pretty dubious.

      That being said, I think GFM is *still* the stronger offer: the sign on bonus will put GE up a little the first year but after that it will be higher at GFM not considering the options.

      I would recommend learning more about the work at each place, maybe asking to talk to future teammates, because I think that job / career satisfaction will matter a lot more to you than the +/- 5k

    GFM seems like a significantly better offer. Do you have a personal preference for GE?

    That is a pretty fair offer from GE for that level of job, at least within the company.
