Help with comp negotiation: Was offered a mid level role with fast growing tech co valued at ~$6b. They are offering $140k base and 30k options (number of shares not $) vesting over 4 years. Likely annual bonus of either $20-40k or 10k shares. What’s a reasonable counter? Current offer base would be a pay cut for me, but I believe in the co.
Why does everyone say PE is a “low risk” way to make a lot of money? Once you hit VP level, isn’t the majority of your compensation in carry, which doesn’t get paid out until 5-7 years AFTER it is earned (while in consulting, your bonus is paid out in the year it’s earned)? And if you look at the CALPERS database, don’t many funds of mega fund/UMM PE firms fail to exceed the hurdle rate? So even at established UMM/MF PE firms there’s a possibility you’ll get no carry? Am I missing something?
