Unicorn offer evaluation - TC or big name?
Received an offer from a 2nd/3rd-tier unicorn company. I feel the offer is too good to pass on comp-wise, but I keep debating if I should keep pursuing opportunities with FAANG + uber/lyft/airbnb/etc these bigger names. I am just at the early stage of my career, so feel like having a big name on my resume might be more helpful in the long term?
Job function: Business analytics (non-DS)
TC: 160K base + 50K stock options/year
Location: Bay area
Assume everything else (manager, team & culture fit, learning opps, growth path) is all good. The only variable I am looking at here is the company name.
Should I take it? Appreciate any inputs!
