I've been looking for a new job for quite a while now (I do have a job, but the comp is waaaayyyy below market and lots of other issues, so I'm finally doing something about it). Right now I've got 4 companies on the hook: Company A: Had the HR screen on Friday and it went very well, supposedly will get a tech screen this week. Full time. Company B: Going through a recruiter agency, so took a test for the agency. Took ANOTHER test for the company on Friday. Got an email this morning about a phone interview tomorrow with the hiring manager. 1 yr contract to hire. Company C: Also had the HR screen on Friday. Supposed to hear about next steps this week as well. Full time. Company D: Have the HR screen later today. Full time. So... A is a software company, if you aren't a software engineer, you probably never heard of them... they are the leader in their space though and their stock is doing awesome and major hiring spree. B is also a software company. You've definitely heard of them and their software. C is a software/ecommerce company you've never heard of. Kind of has a bad rep on glass door. I know 2 people that went there and quit within 1 - 2 yrs. Had a recruiter claim they were trying to improve, but... D is also a software company you never heard of. Kind of skeptical on this one since they don't seem to make much money based on how many employees they have. C & D, I'm not too excited about and applied to them as "last resorts" to get out of my current company. So anyways... the question is what have you guys done in the past in situations like A&B? A's benefits aren't that great. No 401k matching and "unlimited PTO", but its full time and 2 levels above B and the stock options will be a lot better I think. Not sure if B gives stock options and not positive on what % bonus or stock options either company pays. At a rough estimate based on what I could find online BEFORE you count stock options, A will probably be ~40k more. So they more then cover the crappier benefits. Both will be perm remote which kind of sucks, but I don't think we're going back to the offices in January lol... looking more like mid 2021. I mean, its a no brainer, I'll make more money at A most likely. I'd be happy at either. My concern is that B might move fast since its contract to hire. Of course I can take B and retract during my 2 week notice period if A comes along... but once you start... if you quit a job after a week or two, you are burned with the company and the agency... Not too concerned about getting burned at C&D since I did those on my own and being burned there, I wouldn't lose sleep over it.
