Have you spoken with HR re this? The longer you wait, the higher the possibility that your strike price will be higher.

You can only be granted options while still employed (or providing services), so do not quit until sorted.

Check if there is any guidance on your state's Dept of Labor website. If in CA, options are generally considered wages.

You can also look for an attorney who can advise you in your jurisdiction.

Good luck.

I’m pretty sure colleagues at my firm are inflating their billable hours. Is this the norm? I suspect many of you will think this is obvious and/or that I’m naive but wtf?

I don’t want to sound self-righteous but if most are lying just to make the requirement, then maybe the requirement should be lower.

They emailed me that these overdue trainings will negatively impact KPMG. what are the potential consequences since I can’t even take them until June for one and one in September?

I'm evaluating a potential small business acquisition within IT managed services with the goal of having a manager in place to run the day to day. I don't have a direct background in the services being provided so I'd require a more technical/client service focused manager involved while I tackle the other aspects of running the business.
I'm getting anxious in thinking that maybe my lack of tech might set this up for failure. Anyone have suggestions or examples on how this can work.
