Entirely depends on the company. You will probably get some minimal options.
Usually only heads of or founding members have options. Or there is a standard options scheme for all employees.
Personally I would Opt for a higher salary as options may or may not work out and you will probably loose them if you decide to leave the company

The number of options will be based on what the company has already committed to other employees, how many total employees there are, and perhaps your seniority. Keep in mind that options are only worth anything if you’ve earned them (the standard 12 month cliff means you’ll walk away with nothing if you leave before the one year mark), exercised them (paid the strike price within the timeframe allocated), and the company goes public or is acquired.

I started at Amazon 6 months ago from consulting and I’m definitely performing under expectations. I don’t like the role since it’s too technical and I spend too much time coding. Every 1:1 with my manager is spent discussing my “progress” on projects, “training” I should be taking or “creating plans and lessons learned” to improve but I just don’t care. I am actively interviewing elsewhere anyways. Am I about to be put on a PIP?
