Doubt you will get many true stories because it's very very rare. Everyone hears the 1 or 2 success stories but the VAST majority of startup employees don't get a meaningful payout from stock. I say this as an ex VC who has seen even successful startups payout for ExecCo but barely anything for anyone who wasn't ExecCo.

Worked with a recruiter in the past and received multiple offers with her and even accepted and reneged on one. After that, told her I needed more time to re-assess the situation. Was working with another recruiter all the while and have since accepted a new role that I am starting soon. The original recruiter keeps following up (pretty aggressively). What should I tell him? Never signed anything binding with the original recruiter.
