Any comments on the two offers ?

Yoe 6 after phd, current tc 250k , east coast location

Ict4 tc 338k + 1st year sign on
210k base, 122k rsu == 512,400 usd over 4 years, sign on 35k,

no target bonus or guaranteed refreshments, half of the people in the team I am joining has got bonus last year, all but 1 got refreshments

I got to continue to do interesting distributed work at a amazing team. I know the problem space and team well.

E5 tc 343 (with 15% Target bonus) + 1st sign on
190k base, 500k rsu 4 year vesting, 75k sign on

I need to choose a new team and go into a unknown space.

    It's the best company ever. Please join and don't ask for exhorbitant TCs. Think of wanting to make cloud from ground up

    Follow Oracle’s results and answer would be obvious... OCI will take at least a few more years to make significant money. Even then it will be an enterprise product so slow growth and adoption...

    I’m not going to pretend that everything at Oracle is sunshine and rainbows. The career advancement upside if you are a high performer is massive, your work will be more challenging and you will have more ownership of those challenges

    I had a option between FB and OCI. I choose OCI.

    More fulfilling and challenging work (at least for my role) but damn the comp is off. Stock hasnt moved much and refreshers and bonuses go management only (I can't speak to all teams)

    Discount the FB comp due to high likelihood of getting fired.

      FB is a better company for growth. Also with refreshers TC will be much more.

      OCI is screwed.

    OCI- build some cool shit, do things you wouldn't be able to do at Facebook. Then leave after a couple years and get even more from FB.

    FB has much better prospects of upside on stock. Better tech stack. Harder challenges to tackle. Best of the engineers to learn from. Better refreshers. Do I need to go on?

      OP is interested in distributed infra system. FB doesn’t necessarily have better tech stack or harder changes compare to OCI

    Just want to see who’d even pick fb after the record setting performance. Looks like all people care is stocks. Even if it means their work/manager being a dud.

    FB. You can negotiate more for sure at OCI

    Go for the team where you have friends or are likely to make friends and be happy. Maybe higher base is better if stocks move like today.

    Oracle for having time after work and for the opportunities to work on what you want how you want. Trade-off is the brand and unclear long term direction.
