How much equity? Do you believe in the company and the upside? How many YOE? Do you like the role? Are you ok with likely more ambiguity and chaos in a startup? Just cash alone isn’t enough to answer this question.

idk how you expect everyone else to give advice without sharing that info

In-house marketing departments are flourishing right now. We’ve hired two new people, and plan on more. And we continue to fire our agencies, from content creation to branding. I think it’s a positive move, as I’ve seen better work related to the brand I work for come from those who understand it best. Tell me again why a full agency is necessary? 😆 We hire and give full benefits, while agencies continue to ask freelancers for discounts, while jacking up their agency rates.
