I’d need at minimum 100k more to move to California from Atlanta

Looking at just money alone- I’d pick the Atlanta offer for 155k salary. Or are you saying both are in California?

No sorry one is Atlanta which I don’t love or hate but I’m here already. California one is Bay Area which I wouldn’t love for tax purposes but would like the weather

Tech usually provides 40-80k of relocation benefits. Salary is much better for the ATL offer, but the relo package should be considered if you wanted to move to the Bay Area

Is that per year RSU or over four years? What do these tech companies do? Are you interested in the area? The roles? Stuff to consider. If it’s like mailchimp/intuit-level vs Google-level company would strongly lead towards latter for future opps.

It’s over 4 years for both offers: 1 year cliff. Neither are google or FANG level companies, but i think they could springboard me they eventually?

Atlanta is very Low cost of living so that seems more reasonable than California honestly

West Midtown area. All the complexes in this area cost at least this much- unfortunately it’s the area that works for mine and partner’s work/transportation situation

If you like ATL I absolutely wouldn’t move to the Bay Area - would consider LA.

Appreciate this, yea no real desire to move but don’t NEED to stay I’d the money took me away. Seems like it’s not really winning me over at this point

I was caught off guard at my compensation meeting by getting a raise to $100k but also getting a promotion.
