Seriously. I'm a 23 year old security engineer from the DC area (spent my whole life here) and was offered an entry level position with a twenty-six month contract. It feels a bit like a step backwards while also providing an opportunity to jump five steps forward. I would have to move to the Bay Area AND take a $10k pay cut - the two worst parts of this plan. On the flip side I'm eligible for two performance bonuses during the duration of my employment (up to 31% of base pay) and unlike my current job (where I've put in multiple 10+ hour days) I'm eligible for overtime. I'm probably forgetting some other useful details but this is the general gist of it.
