Depends on your risk tolerance, immediate cash needs, and how much you believe in the company. Shares could net out significant value if the company succeeds i.e. IPOs or is acquired. If you really interested try and model out 3 scenarios over 3-5 yrs...heavy shares, 50/50 split shares/cash, heavy cash. You could also risk adjust each scenario. I know the only certainty about a model is that it's wrong, but could give you a ballpark idea. If you are young I would potentially take a risk and go with more shares...

Couldn’t agree more here. It all comes down to risk tolerance.

Based on alot of market trends last year, a SaaS company that has raised Series A has a higher probability to raise a Series B which effectively pushes up the valuation. This is mainly because VC's have seen some potential and the risk of going nowhere after a Series A has reduced. The company also has FT100 customers which is a huge deal. Depending on your age and lifestyle, my recommendation is 60/40 stocks/cash (Basically more weight to stocks). Company also has enough cash to get the correct people to figure out the business model now. If the company succeeds your stocks payout will be significantly higher than any cash increase you get now.

Currently a 1.5 year tenure Consultant in Deloitte GPS RFA. Just received an offer from Guidehouse for $82K, a $16K salary boost from what I make currently.

After 1.5 years at the company I realised I am well underpaid. I am well aware that it would be a long shot to ask for a big raise (20k), but at the same time I don’t want to change company for that reason. A career coach told me that with my qualification I could easily earn 40k more per year than what I do. It’s really frustrating knowing that some colleagues without previous work experience would earn more on day 1 than what I earn now. I was a tech consultant for 1.5 years before this. Tips?

I learned I’m not getting a promotion to a senior role. I’ve shown leadership skills for the year + 9 months here, have prior IT support experience, etc. This decision was made by the interim sup I’ve only had for 3 mths whom went with another candidate. I did briefly voice in this mtg that I am seeking an increased salary. Im currently @ $60K and was told I’d get $63K to take into acct inflation and being a good performer but do deserve more. Help please since my performance review is soon.
