    Optimizing solely on tc is dumb. Ask the hiring managers what you’ll be doing. What one appeals more? TC will quickly mirror your value which will mirror your enthusiasm. Join something your excited to be apart of -TC will follow

      Until you realize 135 in the Bay Area is basically lower class income.

    Seattle doesn’t have income tax, so factor in the 10% saved!

      The vesting policy is really not a big deal. The signing bonus is typically structured so that your comp in years 1 and 2 are roughly in line with what you get in years 3 and 4 when the majority of your stock vests. In all years you can expect to make roughly the same, though in practice people’s grants have ended up worth quite a lot more at vesting after 2 years of stock price growth. I wouldn’t worry about it.

      Lol, you must be super dumb. 165k Bay Area vs 200k Seattle, unless you want to live in Bay Area I don’t see why this is even a question
