No suggestions, but here are some questions I might ask myself if I was in your situation: “Which position do I think best supports the kind of work/life balance I need?” “Where do I think I will feel most safe taking risks and trying new ideas? Where do I think occasional failure is tolerated if it’s a stepping stone towards long-term success?” “Which job has more potential for me to take initiative on assignments, rather than everything getting handed down to me by my boss?” “Where am I more likely to be encouraged to voice my honest views and opinions?” Those are some of the questions I would be asking myself because those are the kinds of factors I’ve found contribute the most to my long-term satisfaction and career growth. I hope some of them help!

Have you looked through their Glassdoor reviews? At Apple, I’ve heard product managers are part of marketing instead of Engineering. These are the things I would think through - what the culture is like, and is it what I want.

So I left my current job for a new position that pays 22k more and is more development than admin work. I was supposed to start on 11/15 and it is now pushed back to 11/30 due to the background check still not being done yet. So I spoke to the recruiter yesterday and she said they can offer a signing bonus of $1,000 and I told her I have to think about it because the 2 weeks of pay I’m out is almost $4,000. Like I quit my job for this. I think they can do better than $1,000 am I wrong?
