Help decide between 2 offers and h1b transfer...
Got couple of offers...
SE3 at company A: 125k base, 130k stock
Accepted the offer, they filed LCA and just filed h1b premium transfer couple of days back. One of the top 10 companies is glassdoor.
Got another offer yesterday,
Sr. SE at B: 155k base, 35k options pre ipo.. A big company too but not public..
Role, team, culture, manager, at A and B are something I like in both places. I wont regret choosing 1 over the other.
Now, confusion is I like company B due to senior title and high base pay. If A gives more base I might join them. But scenario now favors B. B is yet to start filing h1b transfer. They will do in 1-2 days in premium.
Given this situation, can I negotiate with A for more salary. If that is not professional, can I turn down As offer now?
Feeling bit bad to think about turning down the offer, but same time dont want to leave so much money in the table. Not sure if I'll stay long time in the company or shift in 2 years..
Blinders, what would you do if this is your situation. Advise and suggestions please..
Edit 1: A is VMware.. so its MTS, SE.
B is Optimizely SFO its Sr. SE.
