How do you guys approach equity only? The company I'm interested in is a startup and will offer between 1-8%. However I must provide a pilot project showcasing my value to get %. I'll only know what percentage I'll recieve once I'm successful. Is this a normal practice in thr tech world ?

This sounds pretty extractive to me. It’s one thing to bring someone on equity only, it’s another to not disclose salary until after a pilot project.

But doing both just feels really scammy. I’d look more into the team if possible.

But every startup is very unique so anything is possible.

I always treat equity as discretionary/optional. It’s a 0 until proven otherwise. If I’m not happy with the Base salary I am not taking the job. So you have to ask yourself if the equity is a zero, which you still take this job? If so, then you can always say you don’t got a pilot project and refuse the equity

OK, so I really need some help;
I was offered a position as a campus
recruiter for 80 K(this was
the verbal offer); accepted the verbal
offer because I was told that I wouldn't
be able to move forward. Wanted to
try and negotiate when I had
something in writing such as the
official offer. I tried reaching back out
to the recruiter to ask if the offer was
negotiable she said no and that I
should have tried negotiating during
the verbal and nothing can be done.
What should I do?

I have a return offer from a big 4! Thoroughly enjoyed the experience as an intern and have no complaints. Would love to go back.

Would it be a blunder to NOT try recruiting with MBB’s ? Besides the monetary aspect, what are the other things I’d have to think about?
