Tech fish, what is your market TC vs your expected TC? Market TC = base + bonus + RSUs vesting over the next 12 months valued at GRANT price Expected TC = base + bonus + RSUs vesting over the next 12 months valued at CURRENT price Market TC should be competitive with what you can get from other companies. Expected TC is reflective of stonk luck. Would also be interesting to know how long you’ve been at your company. I’ll start Market TC = $330k Expected TC = $595k Tenure just under 3 years
