    I don't really agree with significantly discounting snap stock. Snap stock is publicly traded just like Google. It's higher risk but higher rewards. That's why it's priced the way it is. The risk is already factored into the market price.

    Google. Snap stock may easily lose value from here. Google engineering should be lot better.

    Good thing about snap stock is it is vested monthly.

    I would ask G to match. They will maybe get to 330k plus some bonus to top off. But the signal you get from G will be better in the long run than Snap.

    How much faith do you have in SNAP stock? If you have faith in it, then go with snap. Personally, I’d factor in your equity compensation being halved by vest time.

    Google. In few years, Google on your resume will get you hired by snap easily if you care for it. Google stocks are reliable in value.

    Too bad you didn't interview earlier and join snap at the beginning of this year.

    Hard to say without a breakdown of salary/bonus/stock. Personally I would treat GOOG as cash value (& I personally divest as soon as it vests) but I would discount SNAP's stock because the history isn't rosy.

    Also depends how much you value stability vs. variance.
