    FB = 370k TC , finance = 195k TC. This is assuming the 160k RSU is annual.

      Nope, E3 base and E5/6 stock doesn’t make any sense.

    Fb. Annual refreshers and annual raises > finance without stock, refreshers, bonuses, or yearly raises.

      You have probably worked in hedge funds, and stocks are more tangible and real than bonuses

      @onesie didn't you just justify my statement then? I mentioned annual refreshers.

      ^^ Don’t think so. Finance has good raises too. Unless the stock refreshers also result in a significant stock price increase in the future. Usually around 25 percent raise minimum YoY is the norm at top hedge funds till you reach the higher end of comp.

      Which is fair, but that's also the top hedge funds. The top stock gaining companies are pulling 60%+ stock growth last few years

      Agreed, that resonated with my earlier statement. However, I don’t see that lasting forever. As an example do you see amazon growing constantly 60% YoY? Square is a worthy exception for now.

    If you are SWE FB is likely better as a long term career choice. If you are in a different role, go with the Finance company.
