Is this the first offer you've had in your current job search? If so, you might want to play the field a bit more to see if you can get a better offer elsewhere. At the same time, it's hard to beat great culture.

I’ve had a few other VC offers but it seems like compensation is so wildly variable across VC. Haven’t landed anything in PE yet.

Would you say that exit opps into other investment funds are possible from family offices?

What type of investing is this? Never heard of $130k all in comp unless this is an analyst role but wouldn’t expect that to be the case given your YOE

I was coming to ask the same - I know VCs vary quite a bit, but this seems far too low personally. I would maybe explore a few other options before you jump all in
