help me decide on a job offer
Hey guys. I have a first world problem.
I will graduate end of this month with my BFA and began to apply for jobs here in nyc. I have two offers and am not sure which one is the better deal.
Already negotiated to 50k starting salary
Would have benefits such as 401k and insurance.
responsibilities would be taking photos and retouching mostly but also some web elements.
2 design people work there and they seem nice and are more or less my age.
commute about 1.5 hours, 2-3 different trains.
first offer is 52k starting salary. I think I could negotiate it to 55k at least 60k at most.
no benefits as far as I know cause it's a startup. But they mentioned stock options in connection with a standard employee stock options program.
responsibilities are huge. I would first start to create digestible info graphics for investers and then would be part of the entire re-branding.
no design people at this start up besides me. I would report directly to the ceo's which seem to like good design but don't know why besides it looks good.
commute 1 hour, no change of train.
If you were me.. What would you do?
Tldr: got a safe bet offer and a startup risky offer. What to do? Gotta decide by Wednesday.
