First, congrats on the offer, excited to have you! For your questions: 1. On the 15th of the month after you join, the $300K is actually converted to a share amount. So let’s say that Microsoft is $300 a share. That will convert into 1,000 shares over 4 years. 2. After 1 year, you’ll get 25% or 250 shares. Every 3 months after that in Feb, May, August and November, you’ll get 63 shares (6.25%) until you get all 1,000 shares. Because you get shares, if the stock goes up, that’s great, you could get more than $75K each year, since you’re getting shares. 3. LinkedIn will automatically withhold shares for taxes. So you’ll get 150 shares after 1 year instead of 250 shares for example, with the other 100 sold to pay for taxes. You’ll pay ordinary tax rates for stocks you get at time you receive them.

Very helpful, thanks!

What’s the role?

Find out the vesting schedule. Might not always be even vesting per year. Some companies *cough Amazon cough* back load the vesting

I’m pretty sure Microsoft has a normal 4 year vesting schedule. Unless it’s changed since May 2021.

300k/4 = amount of RSUs you'll get at the end of your first 4 years

Yes, and most places allow you to sell RSUs to cover taxes

yay welcome!! your recruiter should be able to break it down in great detail - the team is super helpful. what role?

What role are you looking at, @OP? Assessing an offer myself right now
