I have an offer from Facebook: 160k base, 300k stock, 50k signing

From Pinterest I have: 160k base, 500k and 25k signing.

Both positions are for applied research scientist. Do I have negotiating room on any of these offers?

    There’s always room for negotiation.

      I want to go to Facebook to be honest. I just don't want to leave anything on the table.

      If you're gonna squeeze, you'll need reasoning and if they're gonna flex it'll be on equity

    People here don:t know diff between private and public stocks... Against FB, you should get at least double the equity from pinterest. Go to pinterest if they are willing to offer 600k+ with matching signing.

      True against MSFT or AMZN, not against FB

      Look at what just happened to fb and what's expected

      But that might mean fb stock is discounted. I don't think fb is going to crash more, but who knows.

    Pinterest Seattle is an amazing place to be in. Wonderful people and you can have the start up experience of building something new! Fb Seattle has gotten pretty big. So will be hard to show your impact . Both offers are solid though
