PayPal Offer:
Base: 120k
Joining: 15k
Relocation: 8k
Stocks: 30k/3 years
Annual Bonus: 10%

Bird Offer (E-scooter company in L.A.):
Base: 125k
Joining Bonus: 10k
Stocks: 120k/4years (options)

Both are New Grad offers not Negotiated yet!

Since Bird has not IPO so stocks are options to buy at 3.2$ a share. With IPOs failing I am not sure which offer to accept. I feel work might be more interesting at Bird compared to PayPal since I was a summer intern at PayPal and found work to be less challenging. Any leads on Negotiation will help!

    For New Grad, a startup environment and fast paced culture is really good for growth and development so I’d take Bird. I would try and leverage the PayPal offer to get them to sweeten the pot a little (mention COL in LA and the larger sign-on/relocation bonuses)

    Bird is on precarious footing. Read up on Tech Crunch.
