I have close to 4 years of industry experience with PhD and I am trying to make a decision between both of the following companies:
- A bigger company with 3000 employees a decent base salary with RSUs (think Twitter)
- A smaller series B company with 300 employees with close to 100 engineers but at least +25k more on the base and impressive equity
The technology stack and peers are comparable.
My experience till date has always been in a company < 50 employees. Do you think joining the bigger company will be better for my career than joining the series B startup?
However, since you already have experience with a smaller company, depending on your age it might be worth going for the bigger one.
