I’m in the initial negotiation for an offer and the recruiter presented me the first numbers. How should I interpret the “50k$ per year” in stocks? It means that every year I will have 50k$ vested stocks and potentially can sell them all or it will be just the 25% (or whatever fraction) of that number?

You are provided 200k in todays stock price in units
1/4 the units are vested every year
‘50k’ per year can be more or less dependent upon stocks performance.

Hey Peeps,

I'm here in Georgia and really want to work at Google. I'm an educator looking to pivot into a non-technical role.

I see all these flashy TikTok videos where people with no experience got Project Manager positions and make six figures just to eat, shop, and have 2 meetings a day. I know there has to be way more to such an interesting position. Can any of you give me any insight into what a PM's day-to-day is like a Google?
