Leaving after 2 months

Microsoft Rhenish

(Not currently at MSFT). I joined a smaller company (DocuSign) recently around the time it went public. Things are good financially but not very happy with my day to day. Recently received an offer from Google for similar comp (given inflated stock since going public) but seemingly better opportunities/prestige.

Is it worth burning the bridge and joining? Google is my dream employer btw

    Yes. Your interest comes first. Never do a job where you are not motivated. They will understand that a google offer is something all engineers will take.

    Docusign is sort of a boring company. No offense but your product is digital signage. Can you really wake up in the morning and feel excited about that

      Maybe one day they'll incorporate block chain into their tech.

      If you're working on the service side of things, the technical challenges are the same as you'd see in any other large service. I joined from a server team at Microsoft and don't have much to complain about.

      If I were the OP, I'd at least give it a couple more months or ask my lead to send me some more challenging projects. It took me more than two months to figure out where the interesting stuff is.

      Companies don't care about people. They care about profits. You have a responsibility to yourself and family (if you have one) to do what's best for you.

    I wouldn't worry at all about that particular bridge given that you'll stamp Google on your resume.

    Well duh OP. By the way, what reason did you give to them when interviewing on why you were leaving so soon?

      OP
      They asked and I told them the truth which is the recruiter took too long to get back to me about Google

      Ah no, I meant to the interviewers at Google, or did you already interview at Google by the time you left?

    Does DocuSign give sign-on bonus? What’s the compensation structure?
