I’m interviewing at two great tech companies and am in the last rounds of interviews at both, meeting with the execs. Both companies have expressed that they want to hire me regardless if the execs agree and are willing to find a place for me. Both have great company culture and benefits, and both are willing to meet my salary requirements. I wish I could work at both of them! If you were in this position, what other factors, besides the obvious would help you make a choice between the two?

Definitely research the companies like AFI1 said. Glassdoor, LinkedIn, any news sites, etc. Also check their hashtags on social media (IG, TikTok, etc). But if both have similar benefits, honestly, my deciding factor would be who covers more of my insurance premium and who has better (re longer, full pay vs partial pay) parental leave.

My answer may be very much based on my geographical location (France) but definitely amount of paid leave days, company profit-sharing, flexible hours, frequency of and average amount of pay raises. And definitely their attitude towards professional development opportunities. Also if you have the opportunity to speak to the person leaving the vacant position that would definitely help to sway me on way or another.
