When is it time to give up on a job offer coming in and move on? Internal recruiter has been in constant contact with me and extremely positive, but the final decision seems to keep getting pushed off because they can’t get all the decision makers together to decide - 3 weeks now. Feels like I’m being strung along or maybe their second choice. I wasn’t looking to leave my current role, but this is an awesome opportunity. It’s starting to distract me in my current job though and can’t let it go.

Was offered a role to join a newer company and was given “equity” as part of job offer. However upon reading the clause, it appears to me more like stock option. I have option to buy x numbers of shares at “fair market value” “as determined by board on the date of the grant.”

Based off the language, it doesn’t seem to be as generous. I have no control over the board and what they determine the FMA to be. Potentially could be a price that makes it too high to execute option.
