Have an offer to move to a Fortune 500 company as a finance manager and an offer to move to a small PE owned company ($200m in revenue) as a business strategy manager. Same pay. Small company has me working with CFO/CEO/PE firm directly and large company has more benefits and defined career progression. Also the small company doesn’t have maternity leave and only has short term disability whereas the F500 has 1 month leave + disability. Which to take (kids in 2-3 years)? High impact or security?
