    Many horror stories about Wayfair. Just search Blind for them.

    I'd choose Braintree.

    What level or position are they offering you at Wayfair. From your offer it seems like L5!

      Wayfair has a lot of compensation imbalance among same level.

      First question is, are you in engineering? Engineers are roughly paid par to non-engineers with 2 levels difference, i.e. L4 PM is equivalent to L2 Software Engineer.

      Second question is, do you understand Wayfair's compensation policy? We distinguish within the same level depending on individual performance. So a 1 or 2 rated L4 is paid differently than a 3 rated L4, etc.

    How many RSUs they said they would give for $332k? 3000 units?

      Stock price was at $123 on Aug 5. It was probably 2700 RSUs.

      It's now at $113, roughly 10% less.

    You can ask for more from Wayfair. Base can get to 175k. Ask for 300k+.

    Braintree for safe ride. See if Braintree can give you a less COL tech-hub location such as Austin/ Seattle so you can save more.

    Wayfair for Amazon-like ride. They won't be Amazon but may get acquired by Amzn/wmt/private equity if stock continues to crater.
