Here is a play on NKLA: potential double. GM says the other day that this is a legit company by partnering with them to produce the trucks. GM now has a financial interest in NKLA succeeding. Today short sellers come out with fraud reports. Currently stock sits at 39.2. If you think this was bonus, pick up weekly 40calls here at 1.3. Company likely to defend as the CEO has a huge ego

Got an offer from an established (but disorganized, unstructured) startup. Cash comp is good (but not great - 30% paycut over my consulting pay) and was given equity worth a few millions @ a valuation of 3B. Problem is - I have absolutely no clue what this firm is worth at the moment. CEO says it’s currently worth at least 6B. It has good growth potential but I have no way of estimating the probability of this being materialized if and when a transaction occurs. How should I think about this?

I have an offer at a PE-backed healthtech company growing 30% a year, as VP of strategy reporting to CEO. 1 year after series B round, revenues at ~20-25M. I am excited but comp is less than expected. 175K base, 20% bonus, equity options worth 60K-180K annually (60 if valuation doubles in 5 yrs, 180 if it triples, very little if does not double and 5yr vesting). Who can help benchmark? I hear I could push base up, hesitating how much... and what is signing bonus standard?

Curious about leadership compensation - does anybody have an idea on what partners make? And the scales for that i.e new partner who’s still “salaried” vs. equity partner of a offering vs. Consulting lead vs. CEO ? I’m in the Canadian firm so info for that would be ideal but other countries/firms would be good to know too.
