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?

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

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