Hi All. Currently an SA going on Manager with MBA and 5 yoe, promo this year is pretty set. Have since moved from PwC to another B4. Have an offer from an early stage tech startup in a non tech role and would appreciate support evaluating it. Offer is for - 160k base. 50k equity. 4 year vest. Overall, startup seems like it is in a great position to do well. Thoughts on the offer? Is it fair? When negotiating, what levers and component of comp is best to target? Thanks!

Umm yea but equity is what start ups have to offer… if you’re not comfortable with any equity…you don’t go into startups.

Umm… 8 yoe here no MBA though. I didn’t even make close to that living in Manhattan, so I say take it.

Consulting Manager in Seattle here - that's about my level of pay (158 base + 16% bonus structure). I would say right now we're seeing a little bit of a inflation/bump in pay bands - we just hired an S.A. at 165, but without the bonus. I would recommend asking about manager bonus % if they have one (sounds like equity is their solution here) PTO (is it unlimited, being a start up, or is it only 2 weeks?), remote options (are they 100% remote, will they be in the future, what are you required to do) and see what the managerial team looks like - are they all young, have they had manager positions previously? Will you have a director, or is this a "all hands on deck/we're a family/you're expected to reach higher" kind of a place? But, overall sounds like a pretty solid offer if you're excited about the work!

Thanks for the feedback! Unsure of bonus and yes to unlimited PTO (always a bit weary of how much people actually take). Office but in-person is optional and seems like they have some solid experience throughout the org thus far. Thanks again - likely will take it after a little negotiation!

How much your Manager pay be? I am a M1 at Deloitte at 178k with 42k bonus this year. B4 Manager pay, especially because you are already highly paid owing to you switching to a new B4, would likely be higher or around 160k. You should consider only if they offer more salary or RSUs unless you are saying it's 50k worth of RSUs per year. Also consider the fact that the 50k stock is essentially worthless until they IPO and unless this is a Series B or later startup, there is no guarantee that they IPO or get bought out. I would remove RSUs from any consideration essentially.

This is similar to what I expect my manager pay would be although that is definitely on the high end of bonus range. Understood that the equity is not a sure thing. Thanks for the help!

Thanks all for the insights. Was able to get equity offer almost doubled. Still thinking on it but think I will go for it

uplifting

Is the 50k the number of shares/options? Or $?

Generally after series C, but it really depends. I would look for or ask for the valuations at each of their rounds so far. You ideally want to see their valuation increasing quite a bit over time.

My team has started ignoring my messages. I’m not sure what I did; I’ve been getting good feedback on my performance, I don’t message excessively often, and I don’t think I’ve done anything to cause social discomfort. The project is busy, but honestly workloads have been lighter than they used to be because we brought in additional resources, so that doesn’t explain the shift in communication styles. I used to feel like a useful team member but now I feel like an annoyance. What should I do?
