Pretty sure bossman was drinking a beer in my interview. Good people."Discretionary bonus" usually means little to no bonus.
Startups that have a "laid back culture" sound like an oxymoron.
Go with A if the bonus is that important to you.
B is my choice.
Need to get back to work, been unemployed for four months and burned through a lot of cashIf you still have money saved to live on and haven't been unemployed for too long or are still employed why not stick it out? The job market it hot. You make your money on the initial hire. And this salary will set the base for your next one
No not public. I would assume yes they need to hit IPO to convert.C is not public? So the options have no value?
I would go with B as it would be a more stable position. If you were 20 years younger, C would be fun, but at my age I have no interest in "startup culture"
Startup too risky? I talked to a past COO at my last company about options and he told me startup was the way to go for the type of experience you get and they're surprisingly hard to land higher level positions at.B is the only viable option by a long, long margin.
Do you have family which is dependent on your income?Yea I mean it would be head of a great department... Full of great talent comprised of myself.
Obviously title doesn't mean too much in that situation. Could grow into something big or could fizzle out.
No family.Do you have family which is dependent on your income?
Do you have adequate savings to survive if C goes out of business in 6 months?
big risk here... Accept C and B since both remote and work both for 2-4 weeks, quit the one you don't like
