Netflix: $380k base
Google: $165k base + $110k rsu/year + bonus (15%?) and $50k sign-on
current: ICT3 ~$215k tc

Full stack SWE, 5 YOE

the google numbers arent final, the recruiter said that was auth’d by the hiring committee and shes asking for more.

The netflix pay is incredible and the team is exciting, but i also like the job security Google provides.

is netflix as challenging and unstable as i hear? is google all it’s cracked up to be?

      At that point, might as well try Albertsons intern. Perhaps you'll have a chance!

      Anything less than 400k is poverty

    Go Netflix. Here's why:

    - Better to diversify
    - All cash is great, makes you immune to stock fluctuations
    - Basic math tells you that your Netflix offer is higher than Google's

    Don't put all of your eggs in the same basket. If your wife works at G already, try N.

      Go to Netflix, have kids after you inevitably get fired and move to Google.

    Netflix all the way. Later you can skeedaddle to somewhere else.

    ALL cash (HIGH) TC is just simply unbeatable!! 👍

    If you are not on Visa or your wife has I-140 approved, Netflix for sure. Also google’s offer is valid for one year. You can always come back within a year if you don’t like the cut throat culture at Netflix.

    Netflix first. If it doesnt work, can still join G

    You should go for NETFLIX. Your wife already works means you have a backup. Google will take years to match up

      The comp is all cash. They give you 5% of your salary in stock options tho

    Get a counter offer from Apple. 380K is not a big deal.
