Two offers.. In growth tech company-Sr Manager, $290K vs in health care company-Director, $315K. This is total comp including RSUs and both are in SF Bay Area. I have always been with tech companies so wondering if moving verticals is worth the extra incentive. The role will be in the sw unit of a healthcare company. What would you do?

I would hold out and keep trying for an exit at Director level in tech. Or take the healthcare role and look to lateral into director in tech in 6 mo to a year. The SM to Director promote is brutal in industry esp. tech

Take the job you are more interested in doing with the people you are more interested in doing the work with. $25K isn’t a huge difference in comp at the levels we are talking about and I think you’ll be more successful on the long run doing work that interests you working with mentors and colleagues you really connect with

Are the other perks important to you? WLB? Which team did you like better? What work seemed more interesting?

Some pros and cons on both sides but pretty much a wash in comparison.

What is vesting schedule for each?

It’s 4 for tech, 3 for healthcare. Numbers I quoted are on per year basis

I’d be curious for peoples thoughts on permanent life insurance. We’re early 30s, 2 kids. We can very likely comfortably afford the big up front investment for the next 15 years or so. It feels like putting the money to work in equities is a better play but don’t want to write this off if it’s worth it. Right now I’d say our net worth is around 1.5 with 55% equities. 30% home equity, 10% preferreds, 5% cash.
