current TC 250k bay area

offer1:
TC 200k SLC low cost of living would save more than my current job.. 20k relocation but will spend more ... also due to bonus cutoff will lose bonus...

offer2: 175k base 25k bonus 35k stock = 235k TC with hiring bonus 75k and retention 75k after a year with that the first two years TC is 310k.. bay area.. with the sign on I will save the most.. so I have to either get a promotion in two years or get another job.. also I dont have to move my family which is a hassle...

is offer two worth taking ... good company but downlevelled... also I am planning to open my own company in 2 years in best case scenario...

    What is the trajectory of your current job? Regardless, I won’t leave Bay Area for SLC for long term career concerns. Not as many options as Bay and god knows what happens when the next recession happens..

    In the bay area you have chance to reach 500k TC, while SLC it is almost impossible. You should think in long term.

    You’d be living like a king in SLC with 200k. You could buy a really nice house. In the Bay you’ll be renting a shitty apartment. I’d much rather live in SLC than the Bay.

    Difficult decision- couple of pointers to consider
    . Kids, family and friends
    . New job opportunities if the SLC doesn't work out
    ... with many considerations, ur the best judge
    Best of luck...

    SLC is your older, closer to retirement and want to slow down. Bay Area if you want to reach your full potential
