Which would you take and why? I'm not in the tech field so trying not to give bad advice 😁

I’ll advice him to go with the Google offer. Better brand name even if he doesn’t get a return offer. Plus, I’m sure Uber will take him with a Google on his resume. Think long term. In the grand scheme of things, 10k will be relatively negligible. If he really needs the 10k, what would he have done if he only had the Google offer? Think long term.

I tried to negotiate an extra 10k on my salary for my new job and they didn’t budge. I still took it because it’s the best path in the long run.

The Uber brand has been significantly watered down since the IPO. Used to only hire MBB and ibankers, and now they've moved downstream to the rest of us.

You can easily go from Google to Uber, a bit less easily from the other way around, unless he's working on self driving car functionality or something else very transferable. He should take Google, by having it on his resume he'll make that $10k delta plus more from the next internship or job he takes.

Agreed that the Uber brand has been watered down but disagree on the talent prestige point... most of the time MBB are not the best candidates for the job
