which offer to choose

May 2, 2019 33 Comments

business analyst

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

      Don't worry, I've seen rent in the bay area. Anyone making large salaries in the bay area has no excuse (outside of special circumstances) for complaining about not being access the money for a year due to rent, you're just bad at money management.

      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.

      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.

    A) 133k TC
    B) 135k TC

    You’ll have to give more information to give any sort of logical help.

    Deleted my last comment, since it went off topic.

    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.

      I talked to the CEO feel like the company can still survive for one yr at least? A is pretty good

      Then it sounds like you're already sold on A. Good luck, man.
