rutee07246731dI don't think three days off is significant enough to choose over a higher salary. You don't know if you will use it up in the first place, at least in the higher paid one, you get the option for an unpaid vacation if you really need those three days. Compute your daily salary, convert those three days to cash and add it to your salary from the lower paid one then compare it to the higher paid one.
C0D44765331dTake base hourly rate ($25?), multiple by hours per week (40?), multiple by 52 weeks ($52,000/year) and remove 3 days.
Which one is better financially?
Now scrap that...
Which one has better internal growth?
As in... which one can you go from a junior, to a mid, to a team lead / senior?
Now scrap that again.
Which one works with the tech you want to use and others benefits / culture you are ideally after?
Pick that one.
Ps: numbers in the first section are random based on pulling a number out of my ass only to give an example, fill in your own numbers and do the math.
4lan2ring74431d@C0D4 Thanks for that idea. I did that and I added the time I Need to get to the Company and home each day and that makes a huge difference as the better paying Company is half an hour more away than the one with more time off. So with the lower paying Company I save one hour each day in public Transportation. They are even working with a tech stack I am already more familiar with so I can stand out more, so I may get a raise sooner
