Product Manager working on HBO Max (base: 145k; total comp: 166k) got an offer for PM role at Spotify (base: 170k; total comp: 200k)

I am not thrilled about the scope (i.e. products that I would be working on) at Spotify but I am relatively new to PM (had been in marketing prior) and think Spotify would be better at teaching me the ropes than WarnerMedia.

Basically deciding between better pay/learning/comp. and working on a product I personally am more interested in.
