I recently got an offer from Google Zürich (L3, TC: 168k chf). Currently i work at a startup with ~20 employees based in the capital of a small middle-european country. My current salary is 1/5th of the Google offer's base, but i own 0.3% of the shares of my current company (Valuated around 10M EUR for Series-A). As i talked with my boss about the Google offer, he made a counteroffer with a 65% salary bump and another 0.7% of the shares over 3 years. Also, there is an option for leading a small team of 2-3 people in the next year. The company grew in revenue 3x for 3 years and the planned exit is after reaching 100M valuation. Should i take the risk of staying with the startup for a potential high exit or take the Google badge but on a new-grad level?
What’s the chance of high exit? Probably <10%? New grad offer is 5X your current TC. What are you smoking?
