Now that more details have come out ITT I change my vote to B or hanging around for a much higher base pay given the seniority of the role.

If 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
Need to get back to work, been unemployed for four months and burned through a lot of cash :o

Salaries all look low. Nevertheless, they are all close enough that I'd choose solely based on how you got along with your future boss during the interviews

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" :yikes:

No not public. I would assume yes they need to hit IPO to convert.

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.
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?

No family.

Savings (other than investment accounts) mostly burnt through after recent layoff but I'll try and build it back quick. Who knows but I'd be surprised if they go under in less than 12 months. They've been around 4-5 years already.

Honestly, they're all close enough to the same gig on paper that I'd just go with your gut. For me, I'd never go hybrid over remote, but if it's all the same for you... Then it's going to come down more to who you vibed with best and how interesting you find each company. Without thinking, name one in... 3, 2, 1, now. Done and doner.


big risk here... Accept C and B since both remote and work both for 2-4 weeks, quit the one you don't like

Tbh, I would totally advocate for this if he were already up to speed at one job and wanted to test out a second to see which he preferred. But onboarding at two companies at the same time? Hell naw, fuck that.

I would never let startup options sway you, they aren’t worth shit until someone buys the company and you’ll have no clue what you’ll even get til every investor gets their cut.
