After looking at stock options our friends in tech get, I wonder why are we even in this? Does anyone else feel the same?

Thanks for the basics in investing @ACN. Remind us which tech company that hires consultants on the reg recently tanked to the point that it’s option packages weren’t still so far “In the Money” as to make our bonuses look meaningless.

Stock options are only as good if the company does well. If the tech company tanks, you've got nothing.

D1, I'm sure Moviepass hired a bunch of consultants to come up with all those wonderful business models they keep rolling out. Maybe they can cash out their stock options all at once and buy a cup of coffee.

Lol A1, the big tech companies are equally as unlikely to tank as the big consulting firms

Coming from industry, I really miss the accumulation of equity. Not sure how much longer to hang in

I dont know if your are joking but there’s uncountable examples of tech startups which the equity becomes meaningless. Many of which target consultants.

To me its about risk profile. In consulting, have a great year, get a great salary + bonus. In tech its more tied to the long term performance of the company
