Well known tech company in SoCal or not so well known company in SF?
Hello world. I am a Software Developer with 2-3 years exp. I have a couple of offers - one from a well known tech company in SoCal (Long Beach area) which isn't paying that well (just a little over my current salary, but also living expenses aren't as high as bay area), and the other from a little known insurance company in SF (which is giving me a very good raise over my present salary). I don't plan to stay in either company for more than a year or so, but need to make this change now because of a time-sensitive situation. Which of the two would be a better option to go in for? Would having an unknown company name on my resume/profile hurt my future chances? Hoping the more experienced folks here could nudge me in the right direction. Thank you in advance.
