Opinion on current situation vs new offer? Current situation: Spotify, Boston, Senior Product Analyst, almost 4YOE, 120K TC no signing (now 145K TC due to stock jump), no promo in sight, long hours New Offer: Disney Plus, NYC, Senior Data Analyst, 185TC, signing bonus 10-15K, no 401K match first year, relo package TBD, unsure about promo and hours My initial thoughts: TC is a lot better but lateral move, company brand name takes a hit, applying MBA might be postponed

Brand hit? I don’t think there would be any. Especially if you plan to get an MBA.

Brand hit? You are starting to sound like Deloitte.

Sorry OP, not trying to be hostile, but rather taking a jab at Deloitte. They tend to make comments about how they wouldn’t hamper their brand by going to another Big4. But FWIWI think what you are speaking about is culture rather than brand. Both are highly respected brands.

I wouldn't say the Disney+ brand is taking a huge hit. Sure it's no netflix, but still

With no promo and long hours, you are better off jumping to the other side to get extra $$, Unless your MBA plan is a show-stopper, TAKE IT!

I think the most important factor here is not brand but hours and culture...I gave up my promo at my prior gig (banking) because of long hours and crap culture. I feel I have less energy for those BS as I get older.

Spotify < Disney +

like

Definitely take Disney. Don’t know what you’re thinking but that would look great on your resume. Personally, if you went Disney, I don’t see a reason to get an MBA. Unless you truly want to pivot or you are SURE you can’t get the experience you want without it

like

Yes 100% Disney+ is the new tech. spotify is the old tech

like

I think you are conflating brand with culture. Disney general culture will be mire staid than Spotify, but the Disney+ brand is hot and strong.

Take the offer! Also would you share your background?

Not sure how Disney is a brand hit. If anything, Disney is more prestigious than Spotify.
