I would take the 140k for sure then. Might as well make more and keep your eyes open for the next gig.

I have two job offers. Both the profiles are ok. Not something i want to do in long term. Cant decide

Depends on the experience you will get. All things equal take the $$. But a sleepy industry job where you don't learn anything is not what you should be doing early in your career.

Yeah I would take the 140 for a couple of years and then decide what's next. If your misery quotient is the same...,

Miserably miserable right now. Financial services is the industry

What is this $140K job in the industry if I may ask? And location ?

Boston, finance
