after 2 weeks, i had an interview with tesla

Base: 120k RSU:70K first 4 years and 70 K after that.

tesla recruiter said he’d try to match up to start up and yet to get back to me. if he matches, which one should I go with? Not tagging start up here purposely.

      Are you new here? Nobody listens to glass door anymore. I have personal contacts and know how lunch they make.

      I don’t think their title is “car assembler” then lol, because that is an actual title at Tesla. Maybe it’s [position] engineer.. HUGE difference.

      That’s like me calling an anesthesiologist a nurse practitioner.

    Blind will ALWAYS pick the higher TC offer even if it's garbage for you.

    Definitely Tesla unless that punk ass startup 10x’s their options. God I hate Bay Area startups acting like their likely vapor stock is gold..

    Tesla's still the better option IMO. Depends what you think of their prospects as a company but they're publicly traded so those RSUs are almost as good as cash.

    Update: Tesla came back with a counter offer base 135K and 150K in equity. I asked for 160K base. Need advice in making a decision.
