I accepted an offer in Bay Are recently with TC - 144k, 3.5k SignOn and 15k in stock.

My h1B visa got approved from that company and I gave my 2 weeks notice at the current job in Pittsburgh PA (remote position)and they matched the Pay and told me I can work from Bay Area.

I’m currently confused if I should stay back or move to the new Company.

I recently got a promotion in this company.

Any suggestions?

      I agree. But I have to move to Bay Area. I’m not sure if I should accept this match or just ignore and move to the new job

      Ahh. In that case weigh everything else. What would the commute be to the new company? Is the work the same or would you be learning better tech at the new place? Is your current team good to work with? Work life balance at both, etc.

      Or stay with current company and look out here. Should be able to find someone to smash both offers.

    Tell the new company that the offer has been matched, ask them to raise their offer...

    If you’re ok with the offer, go for it. Never go for a counter proposal. Unless you’re netflix employee.

    Which project is more interesting? If no preference, which team has more people that can mentor or teach you stuff? If no difference, which company has more renown? If no difference, take the PA one, because they probably have you in a much more senior position there. It's alot more to pay for someone for a business operating out of PA, especially if that person doesn't have to come into the office.
