A base110k + 700rsu （$133per share，4years vest
The company is in public and 175shares can be traded at the end of first year)
B C Round startup，base135k
which one to go？
so A is larger company, building website(like weebly, wix...)
B is a finance tech company, not profit yet, business model very similar to Ally Bank
So one of the reason I hesitated is B has unlimited vacation but A only has15days PTO
- RSUs are effectively taking a loan with no interest and using the money to invest in a stock. If the stock is high quality, it's usually a good idea although it comes with some risk (higher risk, higher reward). Generally people have to pay for this privilege with high-interest loans, with RSUs you get this for free.

- So u think I should pick A because currently the stock price of A went up super fast like from 133 to 140 in less than one week
- Not at all. Seriously like I mentioned the pay is really similar. Some people consider base so if that’s your thing go for base.
If it were me, since it is so close I would just look at the companies themselves. How likely is it to get that money from RSU, how stable is stock. Any potential for it to rise a lot?
Otherwise, what job would I be doing at each. Which team do i enjoy more? Which culture is better.
Money is king, and that may be a deciding factor, I’m just saying there’s more to consider than strictly base.

Now that you've added more information, how confident are you in B? How established is A? Unlimited vacation days is a trap, so watch out for that, but 15 days PTO might be worse.
