    Hey Fishes, I have 5+ yoe and I am currently working in GS. Not getting the work that I want and I am not happy. Got an offer from Rivigo as a lead engineer. This is the 1st offer I got. Compensation GS: 30LPA base + 6-7L bonus(Don't know the exact value as gs doesn't share it, last yr it was 5L) Rivigo: 50Lpa base + 3L retention bonus(Only for 1st year) + 28L stock which will vest ober a period of 4 years(25% each year). Should I continue exploring more opportunities ar should I join it?
