First time trying the market, been in consulting 7 years since undergrad. looking at getting an offer soon from a late stage start up that will have an equity piece of compensation. How do I even know what to expect or ask for? Is there a baseline % of base pay or something that you expect to get in equity? Sorry for dumb questions but I’m just trying to not leave anything on the table.

Have you ever seen Shark Tank? Never take less than 20% of the whole company. It’s just not worth your time otherwise.

Good luck!

$35K

If it’s late stage, you’re likely not getting even a single % point. It’s really hard to say without a lot more context, start up equity has a lot of factors and is never an exact science.

Nearing the end of the interview process for a mid level Product Designer role but experience wise I’d be considered more junior. What do I ask for in terms salary? (Sorry if it’s a stupid question) I’ve gone through whiteboarding and a design challenge so skill wise I think I’ve proven to them I am capable. They gave me a range for the role so would I just go with that? It’s higher than average in the market and one I’d be happy with but I feel weird since I’m not actually mid level.

Hello, I got an offer from a different firm but they only offered me $15k + more than my current base salary with no signing bonus. I don’t know if I want to accept it, don’t think the increase is that much. I am going to ask for $15k but also check with my current employer if they can match. I don’t hate my current employer and will probably leave for a industry job next year so not sure what to at this moment.

Covid has been hard. March 2029- December 2020 I drank a lot to cope without realizing it. January- March I didn't realize I was depressed. March I came to terms with increase and ongoing suicidal ideation and needed help. I went into a intensive outpatient program (IOP) which has been super helpful. During the beginning of covid I drank every day and in a great deal. January it was a "dry" month which was hard the first week but overall great. March 2021 realized I'm clinically depressed.
