Seconded

If you got paid hourly at the 40 hour job, 60 hours a week would pay $350k (including time and a half for overtime). Especially considering the fact that time is the one resource you can’t get back, I’d take the 40 hour/week job. If the 60 hour job was willing to match/exceed $350k based on the imputed hourly rate from the lower paying job, it’d be worth considering IMO.

I’d pick 200k TC.

What’s your life (time commitment wise) outside of work and will 40k make a difference to your life other than some extra spending money? Which one has more upward mobility if you care about that? Some people handle 60 hours a week fine, and some people it just about breaks them. Where do you fall?

60 hour weeks break me 🙋🏼‍♀️ take the 200k and invest wisely

I would definitely choose $200K and 40 hours. I've reached a point in life where my time is more valuable than money, or at least as valuable. (But I don't have a family to support, so easy for me to say.) Assuming 2000 hours/year, they value your time at $100/hour. Not bad. I'd view that additional $40k as 20/hrs week for (let's say) 50 weeks. The "overtime" is valued at roughly $40/hour. I'm just not sure I'd be able to wrap my mind around that when I'm tired and having a crap week.

200k. If you are adding 20hrs to the work week at the same rate it should be 300k to be equitable. Most can live comfortably on 200k so why work harder for nominal pay?

200k. You can do side projects with the 20hr that actually contribute to your own growth.

200k easily, hands down, no questions asked.

$40k/year is around $26k/year after tax (ballpark guess assuming 2/3 of total pay is take home). That's around $500/week additional comp for the extra 20 hours/week worked. Obviously need to consider benefits, career trajectory, etc. but based on the facts you presented above I would absolutely take the $200k at 40 hours. After working a full workweek I value my free time at way more than $25/hour.

200k as long as the work wasn’t significantly worse

200k unless the Amazon job is a dream job.
