Offer rejecting after accepting

I got an offer from a FAANG for 130/30/85 and I accepted it as I thought I won’t anything better from another big company but they did with 145/50/185 that’s a clear 40k TC difference. (1.5 years experience)

Do you think it’s worth burning bridges as I am still in early stages of my career?

How much does FAANG brand name matter in your resume as oppose to let’s say Intuit/LinkedIn/Pinterest ?

Does 40k TC a big deal or am I being very short sighted?

EDIT: FANG didn’t revise the offer!

    40k is a big deal, it will affect your income for the rest of your career.

    I don’t think you’ll burn a bridge just don’t be a jerk about it. Explain that 40k is a lot of money “but oh I really wanted to work at your excellent company omg... if only you (recruiter) could work with me to make my dreams real kthx?” (Whatever.) either they’ll match or they won’t, nbd

      Okay so what would you do in this situation when the 2 are in your top tier?

    • i just meant from your list. otherwise i’d include stripe and airbnb and others :)

    • i definitely think you risk burning bridges especially if the first company is your dream company. if it’s literally just about the money then I wouldn’t really worry about it because at FANG if you stay you can easily clear 300k TC or even more later in career and make it up.

      if it’s about team or you prefer other company or something else then i’d take other company. But that’s a personal choice for you. like if you prefer the location etc as well.

      If you plan on taking the first one I definitely wouldn’t renegotiate as you’ve already signed the offer and i highly doubt they’d be open to it.

      best of luck man

    • also sounds like it isn’t google but in general you should take into account the yearly bonus as well. for instance google has 15 pct while most other companies have 10. this can add up to quite a bit over 4 years

  • Tell them you unexpectedly received a much higher offer and you are having a hard time justifying to your family/parents/partner why you should accept their lower offer. And that it would be helpful if they can at least match the other offer. See if they do.

      Agree completely. Don't try to push them beyond. Just say you weren't expecting it but you feel it would be irresponsible to not accept better offer. Reaffirm thst you would accept theirs if they match. Worst case is they say no and you have a slightly worse chance but probably not going to Google in the future

      Don’t renegotiate accepted offer. This is really bad sign, and more probably it won’t work.

      Might as well try, not much better than renegging on an offer. If you're a generalist that's placed in a boot camp then picking team, your team won't know you renegotiated afterwards. If it's for a specific team they'll likely have to speak with hiring manager about it.

    Tell your recruiter immediately.
    "X co. Is still, absolutely, my top choice. There's no where else I'd rather be, but I'm concerned that the 15k gap will not only impact me now, but also as I continue in my career." Something something.

    You don’t own to a company anything, unless you start working. If you value money more, just go to the second one. Invent good excuse not to join the first one.

    Take the higher comp. You can always come back to FANG at a later point in time. As your TC will be higher, FANG will pay you even more.
