Is there an annual bonus? Or just base and equity? Can you sell/ monetize the equity on some regular periodicity (quarterly, annually etc) or just when there is a liquidity event? PE firms typically value equity as EBITDA x a multiple. Ask them what values they used for each in the equity valuation they’re giving you. How does this compare to the values they acquired the company at? This should give you an idea of how believable the valuation is.

unless you're working for some small fund with no track record, it's really hard to get "screwed" over on these agreements

For VP level roles, assuming VP on the hierarchy is one level under C level, I've seen 1x to 3x base comp as the sliding scale for equity. These are typically non dilutive, and the cap table will track the date and the approximate company valuation when it's granted. Alternatively, some companies give out Stock Appreciation Rights (SAR) instead of equity or options to make it easier to administer. If you're in a strategy, sales, GTM or product role it'll swing to the higher end of the scale. Back office, compliance, tax roles will be on the lower end. When it comes to employee equity, there's always room to negotiate as long as the ask is reasonable.

at least enough to make up the difference between what i’m making now

Similar boat. How do you value that equity? I've been searching for online sources but coming up empty

do they not give u a NAV? not saying u should just run w that but maybe apply some sort of discount owing to risk/inflated accounting (if u suspect)

Not sure but friends at that level going to pe ops have been around 200k base + 200k bonus with some minimal amount of carry.
