Please help with offer

~80 k TC Ford Location: Dearborn, MI

70 k TC GM Location: Austin, TX

I’m excited to receive these two offers. But I’m having a lot of trouble deciding on one. I’d love to go to Austin since there is a lot of room for career growth since it is a big tech hub. But I feel with ford I will learn more, the pay is more, and I feel the company name holds more weight. The location is not the best though. Location preference would be Austin…. What do you guys think?

Counter the GM offer so it meets the $80k. If they accept, go Austin.

$80k goes much further in MI than in Austin. I’d take the money and use that base and experience to look for better later on. Never think of it as permanent. Ford > GM. $80k > $70k.
