Wayfair or Facebook

I have offer from both Wayfair (Assc Director) and Facebook (Data Engineering Manager). I like Facebook because I don't need to move to Boston but Assc Director title and scope of work is interesting in Wayfair. As far as compensation both are in similar range when cost of living is taken into account.
Any suggestions on which one to pick?

Wayfair 180K 20 sign on 350k RSU

    Don’t chase nice titles; chase scope and opportunity for career growth. If the work at Wayfair is interesting, go for it. If you can get an offer from FB now, you can get one again.

      Wayfair is not profitable. It won’t be for a while.

    FB has better prestige and will open more doors. But since when did Wayfair pay that much even to match FB???!!!

    You’ll make more money, in the short term, at Wayfair. Even considering reasonable stock price changes (FB is currently undervalued).

    However, FB is a better career option. You’ll have lots of upward mobility as a manager, and that’s when you rake in the real dough. Plus, the better benefits, amenities, insurance, self esteem boost, resume building...well, that all plays a role in overall quality of life as well.

    Do you know who is your hiring manager? Discuss potential promo pathway ahead of time. I'd probably negotiate both offers but in the end, take the higher TC offer.

      Really depends. As few as a small handful to 50+.

      Sorry, directs will almost always be < 10, but overall org could grow large.

    I wouldn’t work for Facebook right now or maybe ever unless they get their sh*t together. That company is headed for a fall, and with good reason.

    What does Wayfair associate director map to Facebook level.. from the TC, sounds like E4 . Are they really giving out director titles like candy there

      @krinjk - data engineering gets paid a lot lower than sde everywhere. Since this is a manager role that would be M1 at facebook which has a very wide band

      I would choose FB. Wayfair is a good company but still less recognized compared to FB, especially when TC is not significantly higher than FB.
