Startup in SF versus Bloomberg in NYC

Sep 14, 2018 5 Comments

I’ve an offer from a decent series B startup in San Francisco and Bloomberg in NYC, and I’m super confused which one to take. The trade offs seems pretty different for both. What are your thoughts?

Edit: I’m a new grad

    Startup as long as that TC is valuing the stock at for the startup. Otherwise Bloomberg.

    I would recommend a large company for your first job, to see how things are supposed to be. Series B isn’t too early though so it’s hard to say.

      Not engineering, but management is. Startups have notoriously bad management and impressionable new grads are so easy to be taken advantage of.

    You would personally learn a lot more at startup than Bloomberg working on decade old legacy code. But Bloomberg does add credibility to your resume. Personally I'd take startup for learning opportunity early in my career and then move to fang if I can get in.

    Try to talk to more people from both companies offline i.e. not through recruiter. Get more understanding of what they feel about company growth, policies specially immigration policies if you have visa requirements
