I got a job offer from Bloomberg in NYC, for Senior Software Engineer. I have 1 year, 8 months experience.

Here are the details.
Base: $135K
Target bonus: $15K
Relocation: $10K tax free
Signing bonus: $25K

What do you think? I have a counter offer from another tech company.

      Bloomberg is private with no intensions of going public so they don't give stock.

    Relocation if paid as cash will be taxed as regular invoice. You could deduct when filling taxes with receipts

    Save for signing that’s he same as most new grad offers (I got a little less at 131.5+13.5). There’s room to negotiate.
