role that you’re not crazy about but think you’ll eventually like parts of it. For context — the “start up” has been around for 2+ years, has 130 employees, and has just gotten $70M in Series C funding. My role with them would be Product Manager. Opposing offer would be with Google as a sales engineer.

      OP
      I’ve got friends that work at the company and I’ve been to the office to meet many folks and I could immediately tell that people actually liked working there and the friendships between coworkers were real, not just pretend work friendships. And the role itself sounds great with great WLB

    💰doesn’t provide happiness, but it eases the pain. Also having kiddos requires money, a lot of it in fact. Meaningful work be damned until I get to a financial standpoint that I can live with a low salary

    It would take a lot more than $30k/yr to make me give up something I know I'd love for something I might "eventually like parts of."

    Already done FANG, so this affects my decision. I would chose the more interesting role. PM and sales are very different. Breaking into new role can take years.

    Slightly more pay wouldn’t be a factor for me.

    Product manger or sales engineer would matter. What are you future goals?

    FANG on resume also would matter.
