What should I counter with? Would asking for $50k more in stock options (total of $100k) be too excessive?

If you are going at an M level, this seems low. I had an offer from a series B and they offered about $100K in options and had a 4% match vesting after 2 years. Is there a annual performance bonus component to this? Or a joining bonus to offset some for the 1st year atleast?

No there’s no annual performance bonus or joining bonus either…it’s feeling really low

Is this a SM role? Managing others? That is also critical to comp package

Then that offer isn’t too bad

Sounds a bit low but you are coming from a non big 4. I would try push for 180 base.

Thanks! I will try for at least that much base comp. any thoughts on the equity?
