Compensation

Looking at potential EM position at a startup. They’ve raised about 50M in funding - how should I think about pay structure? Strong base (160k+) but no details on bonus, equity

Base of 160 is good. Bonus will probably be approx 10%ish but could go higher. Equity will probably be considerable. Congrats. I’m starting at a start up tomorrow @ 145 with a guaranteed bonus of 10% but could go higher based on company performance and a ton of options. Company has raised 12m is seed money and hasn’t done the traditional 3 rounds yet. 2.5 years old

@OP at 50M raised I would be surprised if they’re giving out much in equity. Usually there’s an equity pool of about 10% that gets shared with everyone they give equity to. Equity is a compensation tool, so since you’re making, presumptively, market value, your equity comp will likely be less. Usually equity has a 4 year vest with a 1 year cliff of usually 25%. This means that after 1 year, you’re vested 25% of your total equity, and then equal amounts every month for the remaining 3 years. Also, you should see if you’re being granted options. What this means is you get a strike price to buy your shares, usually at a reduced price. The goal would be that by the time you best, your options have a lower strike price than the current strike price. Good luck!

I recently received an offer at a boutique consulting firm and am unsure of how to go about the negotiation process. I have 1YOE and was originally interviewing for an Associate role but they are bumping me to Staff instead. Offer is for 70k + EOY bonuses. I'm not bank on those though. Nothing is guaranteed and they could easily go away in this climate. I make 50k right now and the Glassdoor page at my employer reflects that. Glassdoor range for the new job is 69k-76k.
