How does the vesting usually work at Faang companies with shares? Let’s say you get 250k in equity that vests over 4 yrs, are you entitled to 1/4 of that after a year?

Google does 1/4 after year 1 and then 1/8 every six months thereafter so after 4 years you're fully vested. There is also a stock refresh every year so you always have something four years out. Those are the golden handcuffs and how they keep you, but I've heard different things about Facebook/Amazon who may not do that refresh. $250k is really high, depending on your level.

I know it’s 100% my fault but no one above me actually reviewed my work bc everyone was so busy. But then I found out the senior gave a rant about how I fucked up to another colleague. When I apologized to him, he was really salty. Since then, my heart drops every time I see his email bc I’m too scared. He is usually pretty emotional and his instructions are vague, which doesn’t help.
