Posting this for a friend who's a new grad deciding between multiple PM programs.

Offer 1:
Yahoo/Oath APM
125k base
50k annual rsu
20k signing

Offer 2:
Atlassian Graduate PM
110k base
15k annual rsu
30k signing

He's drawn to Yahoo for the compensation but worried about the brand name. What offer would you take? How much more $$ from Atlassian would make you take their offer over Yahoo? Pls advise

    I'd go Yahoo. Offer is bananas.

      If comp was the same, what would you say?

      Whichever you'd rather do. You have Facebook on your resume already which will help a lot.

      This is for a friend. He's straight out of college and has these two offers as his first gig.

      Ah... I'd go Yahoo tbh. While we can rip on the company for being past their prime, they are still a well known name across industry. More well known than Atlassian I would think. Both are good options though.

    Atlassian is in Australia. He should probably consider location first.

      Judging by the numbers I'd say the Atlassian offer is for one of their bay area offices

      Didn't know they had a bay area office now. Back in 2015 they only had offices in Australia

      No, they've had offices in the Bay Area for quite some time.

      What specifically about Yahoo makes it not a real company?

    Sorry forgot to clarify, both are in the Bay Area!
