Reconsidering Low Balled Start up offer

Nov 14 3 Comments

I declined an analyst role from a startup because the offer was a lot lower than what i make in my current job.

18k lower...

i think this startup will give me the opportunity to be an analyst and then also learn how to be an engineer but the pay just made me feel like i wasnt being paid what i was worth

im currently not doing any analyzing of data or engineering right now

but ive applied to over quite a few jobs (300+) and havent received anything offer so i feel like im not worth anything

should i reconsider this position if they would let me accept the offer after ive already declined?

i told them i was going to look for opportunities at my current job.

also how bad would it be if i get this position and then leave after a few months because i was offered something better? (please answer in comments)

    Isn't the point of a startup to work hard towards an eventual IPO and big payout? The salary shouldn't be your top consideration - go to FAANG if TC is your thing.

      At that TC, do t take an 18k paycut. That's too little TC.
