I have received a verbal confirmation for an offer at Verizon Media (Yahoo Mail).

I hold 1 more offer from another company X at CA that I accepted a month ago and my H-1B is transferred. It's gonna take another 10 days to complete.

Company X offer:
155k
401 k and other benefits

Verizon offer:
> 155k
Sign on bonus
Stock bonus
401 k and other benefits

I will have to commute to company X in Caltrain if I join but Verizon is near to my home. I have varicose veins.

What am I supposed to do? Suppose I take Verizon offer how can I reject the other company's offer and say NO to them at this juncture? How much can I ask and negotiate for the offer at Verizon Media?

Please share your thoughts. Thank you in advance!

    Be sure to check to see how long it takes before the 401k match vests!

    We are moving to from Sunnyvale to SJ in 2021.
    Yahoo+AOL is now Verizon Media

    Verizon media? Aren’t they based in NYC?

    In any case, I would push out the start date for Company X, wait for H1 transfer for Verizon and then on approval, turn down the other offer! Totally doable.
