Considering a position at a known tech brand...how much stock options should I be asking for/how does it work?

can't speak for other tech brands, but when I moved to Google, I was given a certain number of stock units, that vested over a 4 year period. once they vest, they are mine to sell, hold, whatever. additional stock is granted annually ("Refresh grants"), and that also has a 4 year vesting period. (so it becomes like a long tail). refreshes are based on performance - current, and future potential.

ps. I didn't get to "ask" for a certain amount of stock. the well oiled processes dictate it based on role, level, etc. you may not have a say. but look at your overall comp offer, see what's most important to you, and you can try to negotiate accordingly - depending on the company

I got roughly two years worth of salary in RSUs, that has since then gone up a bit. Vested over 4 years.

It’s pretty common go get those RSU’s that’ll vest over four years (Google “golden handcuffs) Something to consider with these is that they’ll be tied to whatever IC level they’ll have you on. Each company is different and with you they might have a management track that’ll have different structures but basically the RSU’s are tied heavily to the level. Its complicated and once you work there each review will bring you more RSU’s and bonuses so I’d fight for a higher base and starting bonus instead of this

Would be interested in discussing further with you. If you’re open to chat briefly, please let me know. Thanks

Echoing on this, they have a standard amount that may increase with seniority and vests in 4 years usually, plus refreshers for excellent performance. I’d negotiate base + bonus!

Check paysa.com, but depending on location / level it should be a couple hundred thousand vested over four years (1 year cliff)

I'm an IC engineer. ~200k is total package not each year

all of the above is p accurate. worth re-iterating that you won’t be able to negotiate much on stock — their awarding process is a machine that runs on its own, and unless you’re a VP-level hire, you won’t have any leverage for an exception

need advice. I have been working in an interim role as a portfolio manager. I was promised that the role would be mine. However, after doing the job for 2 months, I have been advised that we might not get the funding for the role and I might not get the raise and the title but my responsibilities will be the same. Its a political minefield. How should I back out elegantly that I need to be compensated fairly and competitively from this mess without burning any bridges

Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.
