Why hard due your OPT status? Top companies usually don't mind.

Senior recruiters mention recent technical change in policies with employers hiring OPT affected company hiring policies when it comes to candidates on OPT EAD status. The number of sponsorships also tremendously dropped under Trump administration.

I have some interviews for product management roles at some Series C/D companies. I have a feeling I'll get at least one offer. Totally new to the start up game but given that these are both well onto the road to IPO (according to them) can I have them give me a breakdown of equity, strike price, outstanding shares etc? One is a PMM role too. 31, female in Boston if location maters at all when considering any of the above.

A recruiter pushed me really hard to take an interview but I really just wasn’t that interested in the firm. When I said that I wasn’t sold and wouldn’t be interviewing, they became upset and called me unprofessional, and name dropped my managing partner saying that they expected better from my firm. I was like, it’s quite rich to bring up my partners when you’re literally poaching me from them. Was I needlessly nasty?
