Stay at Nvidia or move to FB

Didn’t get enough responses for the last post so trying it one more time.

Currently IC5 in the self-driving cars team working on CV/AI algorithmic stuff, in the Santa Clara office. I have an E5 offer (195 base/600k rsus over 4 years/75 signon) from Facebook (AR/VR) in their Seattle office. The TC difference, including the cost of living difference that i was able to research, is about 35% (FB paying more).

What should I do?

      I mean you're looking at a 70% TC jump with cost of living baked in

      Seriously though, if OP doesn't take this offer. I'm going to take it. Bellevue and Kirkland are legit.

    Isn't NV self-driving a dumpster fire?
    Why is this a question?

    This is easily a 50% jump if you factor in tax and living costs....

      35% estimate roughly includes COL difference that I researched by talking to friends in the Seattle .

    If you’re cool with the weather, sounds good to me OP.

    So to be clear, the offices are at Redmond not in Seattle. Redmond is a great place to live and you can actually live somewhere to walk to work.
    I have been there for Open House and its a great place to work and I hope sometime I get the same opportunity than you.

    If you like the cloudy weather then GTFO!
    It'd be my dream to get a good offer from FB with a TC jump and jump ship.

      No state tax in Washington. Fb TCx1.1 if you want to compare Seattle vs Cali

    How do u like ur team and work and manager at Nvidia? AV in general is cool. Did you decide?

      I like my current job. I have no problem with my manager or anybody I work with. Great people around here. Yes AV is cool.
      FRL just feels like a better, in terms of learning opportunities and of course TC.

    Nvidia team sounds really coool. Work on projects you’re passionate in. You are high income regardless. Don’t listen to everyone that is trying to only optimize for TC.
