The market is a disaster at this point. Do the numbers work for you? If so, take it and there is nothing stopping you from continuing to explore other opportunities. You tend to get better offers while you are working rather than not working. Also, remember California has rules in place that prevent companies from asking what you are making but instead ask what your expectations. While you’re working this role, for the next opportunity say your expectations are 2x that comp and see what happens.

Appreciate the advice. Will be ballsy to ask for double, but I’m going to do just that.
