Congrats! Based on what’s listed I’d say the cash option. Bonus structure looks really strong, which puts it over the edge. In order for the RSU option to win, the stock price would need to almost double. As long as the bonus is paid out as advertised, would recommend going the cash route

I think it depends a bit on what your current life situation is. If you need the money in hand the cash option is great, but if you can afford to take a bit more risk, FAANG RSUs are great to have...I wouldn't give up Google stock for the world.

Oh just reread - non-FAANG. Ok then it totally depends on the company. If it's not a unicorn probably go with the cash then.

Check out the company's previous stock appreciation. Also ask if there are yearly refreshers on stock. If decent growth + yearly refreshers - do the stock

Agreed. And you really need to get a sense of where the company is going, if it's planning to go public at some point etc.

Is there any chance of making global services with $50k but spent on United codeshare? Any thoughts?

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
