When does it make sense to leave a startup for Big Tech (Google, FB, Apple). First 10 in a startup but I didn’t receive much equity. The benefit is that I will probably be able to grow much quicker and have more a leadership position here than in Tech, but in Tech I’d get a very good salary, sign on, bonuses and RSUs etc.

Most startups are bad and fail. I would not leave big tech unless you get good equity AND the company is led by someone excellent.

funny

My company is led by someone excellent, my equity is eh

I left because my company’s leadership team had gone down hill. I’d suggest seeing if you can negotiate for more equity. If they say no, ask about putting together a plan for your growth with the company and how you can include equity into that equation. Also, start getting involved in conversations about the projected growth of the firm. Tbh you might find yourself better off at the start up if it’s a good environment. You will have more ops to increase experience and you can grow quicker there than at a larger company
