Hi everyone! I have 3 offers:
A: Tier 3, NYC, Base - 100k, Bonus - 20k
B: Tier 1, Baltimore, Base - 110k, Bonus - 10%
C: Tier 1, Dallas, Base - 95k, Bonus - 10%

Which one would you pick and why?

Option B clearly

Go with Option B. Baltimore is boring but DC is nearby. Dallas isn’t any better either. 100k in NY is not comparable to the other 2

I would disagree. As somebody who lives in Maryland and spends a sizable amount of time in both DC and Baltimore they're both very easy day trips and unique cities with their own activities and opportunities. Amtrak and Marc both run frequent trains between the two cities and therebare several highways directly connecting the two. Honestly, I find the lack of pretentiousness of Baltimore refreshing, so regardless you would just need to find your scene.

Option B by a mile

What roles are these

What are the factors you are considering? How much do you care about the city?

All are Risk Associate and I am indifferent.

Option B is the best given the prestige and lower cost of living compared to NYC in Option A.

like

Personally I would make options A and C negotiate based on option B. Don’t say what city they are in.

Once numbers are all equal - I’d personally choose Dallas.

What are you optimising for?

Total “cash”? As cost of living varies GREATLY across these 3 places, same goes for tax

Do you want MBA? What’s the best brand for that?

You can live like a king on $121k in Baltimore

Cost of living should definitely be a huge factor since salaries are roughly +/- 10K diff in base

Go with the location you prefer to live. The money is insignificant at entry level. Long term growth / future prospects should also be a factor. It's extremely hard to give you advice based solely on the comp you present.

I’d personally go for B

Option B

Current work in Baltimore making $120 and lived in the city for 5.5 years. Happy to chat if you have questions about the city, cost of living, etc.
