Would you take an offer that’s a 10% cut to your base, but given stock options or RSUs (both are offered) and the company is expected to go public at the end of next year? Don’t have the exact offer details yet, but wondering if it’s worth the jump. Current base is $140k and I live in a HCOL city.

Yes. Especially if you're excited about the new role or it will open up better future opportunities for you. 140k -> 126k won't be much noticeable in your paychecks, but being able to cash out your RSUs (plus growth) on their vesting schedule will surely make up for the lost 14k over the year.

That’s exactly my line of thinking but wanted to see if I was missing anything. Thanks!

I did this exact thing and my RSUs tripled in under a year - definitely was worth it

If the role is better I’d do it.

How much worth of rsu are we talking about ?

Good question—not too sure as I haven’t seen offer details yet, but one can reasonably assume that the value would be greater than the $14k salary I’m giving up.

Any tips on filling out a feedback form - both for myself and my manager? Are there good general “areas for improvement” that would be appropriate, both for myself and my manager? I want to be balanced in reflecting honestly on my/my managers performance while also not making myself or my manager look bad, esp since we will be going through these responses together. As a manager, what are you generally looking for with these things?
