You have a choice between two companies. Both have a 6 figure base.

One has a better culture, more laid back, cool co-workers, 10K less.

One has a so-so culture, unsure about the co-workers, 10K more.

Which one are you taking?

Laid back cool environment. It's only 10k. That extra freedom will allow me to make more than that while I work at my main job and second job at the

Define so-so?
And if you've been for an interview and you can tell its so so it means its probably worse than that on a daily basis.

While I'm just here to do a job, I'd probably spend more of my productive (read: awake) hours at this place than I would anywhere else.

I have to enjoy going to said place every day, and I have to enjoy the aspects of said place.

Making six figures, for me, that 10K won't make that much of a difference.

Ehh wasn’t fukking with the other colleagues on my team. The Director & VP were mad cool. But dealing with my “peers” might be an issue. Wasn’t much of a gel. If that makes any sense.

An extra 10k isn't nearly enough. Give me the environment I don't hate walking into daily. A hostile/miserable workplace is objectively a drain on your mental health and well-being. To tolerate that misery for a paltry extra 10k is laughable. My mental clarity and physical wellbeing is worth exponentially more than that.

Once you cross over into 6 figs land, extra 10K ain't hitting on anything because they are taking it out your taxes anyways. Maybe at most around an extra 100 every pay check.

Laid back with a good manager every time.
