I’ve offer from a company called Marqeta(fin tech startup) -130 base and 25k sign on

Current salary at Paypal 115k base and around 100k/3 rsu

I’ve 2yrs exp. I’ve a great team at Pypl working on some cool stuff but problem is I’m not getting any hike or promotion which is kinda frustrating.

I want to stay back but not sure if they’ll match.

Yet to talk to my manager. What do you guys suggest??

    Matqeta is not a startup. It is a PE owned company. PE companies are cheap and you will never grow at a PE company.

      It is a startup, not PE owned unless reports are inaccurate.

    Stay at Paypal.. that doesn’t seem to be a great offer , you can grow at PayPal or get better offer down the line ..

    What's 100k/3 rsu means? 100k RSUs vesting in 3 years or something else?

    You should stay. You only have 2 years exp.. personally I wouldn’t worry so heavily on promotion yet. You’re basically still new grad. Work there longer and gain more experience and just become a sponge. You will learn a lot at PayPal.

    Stay, another year. You'll get senior roles when you apply, and also work on your weakness. Your base + annual bonus and stock at PayPal is better than mrqeta who?

    What's to match? Your PayPal comp is higher than your startup offer.
