I usually keep half, and divest the other half into other investments or an ETF, unless there’s something in my horizon where I want to use the cash.

I will sell my RSUs

like

My RSUs are set up to sell all on vest. Taxes get taken, and cash is deposited in my brokerage account. I then buy VOO with the money. Two reasons: 1. Diversification: All my household’s income comes from Amazon, and holding more stock than I’m already obligated to (in the form of unvested RSUs) is excessive exposure to a single company. 2. Liquidity: AMZN is illiquid for 44 weeks per year; I’m not subject to a trading window for VOO.

I keep and let it roll. I was looking into auto sale to diversify... And then the last 18 months happened, and I didn't :) (#growth). Have about $800k vested so that's a nice little nest egg building

I sell most as we get refresh typically and w/o it your TC is pretty low after your year 2

About half of my annual total compensation comes from RSUs so I wind up selling some of the vested stock every year. Over the past few years, I have sold about half of my RSUs to use for either major purchases or to move the money into other investments for diversification. As much as possible I try to budget on my base salary, but I will sell stock for big purchases. Things like vacations, home repairs/renovations, new cars, etc.

Doesn’t the short term gain tax hurt you when you sell within a year?

I actually kept it up until the pandemic started - ours have grown astronomically so I’ve sold about half and invested elsewhere.

I keep it! FYI I work at Apple but haven’t changed the org name because they require us to give off mail id which I am not comfortable with!

once RSU vests, can we leave company without encashing. Will the stocks be in my name to sell in future?

Hello! Any women here in an executive role within a FAANG/tech organization? Over the past year I've had interviews with Google, Uber and Amazon/aws- and so far I've always resolved to stay within 'consulting' because I'm unsure if the 'exit' would be the right move for me. My question is, what is it like being an executive female leader inside a FAANG - and any guidance on moving into a FAANG as an external hired executive. Thanks & happy friday!

Have been a L5 PgM at Amazon for one-year and thinking about opportunities to boomerang back at a higher level later on. Anyone gone back to consulting, or is it better to go to another FAANG before boomerang? I don’t think going to industry at this point makes sense. Concern on going to another FAANG is getting de-leveled/starting over. L5 is nebulous middle management, and it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle.
