I have offers from both the companies for backend engineer - both have same TC. Help me choose!

Zillow
- friendly team
- high impact project
- public company
- latest tech stack - deploying ML models + feature generation for internal customers
- good sign-on

credit karma:
- not a public company yet but there is a reward if it does goes public
- team works on recommendation systems with high volume request to serve it on all paltforms
- probably no sign-on (might be negotiable)

what would you choose? and why?

current tc : 220k
location: SF
YOE: 4.5 + 3 (outside the US)

    Both in SF or Zillow in Seattle?

    If it’s Seattle or SF, I would choose Seattle.

    If they’re both in SF... Credit Karma.

    Stay far far far away from Zillow! Especially the AI team. Toxic culture, politicking, backstabbing, and terrible leadership.

    I would treat credit karma stock as paper money. If TC is still the same with that mindset, I take Credit Karma.

    Also make sure this position is in Oakland or SF

      No there is a big difference without the CK stock. I counted CK current valuation * #RSUs as part of TC.

      Oakland or SF both works for me.
