Too many variables to answer. If there are more than 5 employees onboard already and you’re not an officer or key employee like chief architect, it would likely be less than 1%. The seed and series A investors along with the founders together likely have at least 75-90% locked up.


That’s typical of funded startups to aim high. If you’re in negotiation process you can probably ask for more equity in lieu of salary. In your case, shares of today’s value of around $50k would be reasonable. I joined a startup that was eventually sold for $100mm +. I was around employee #100 and got shares worth a few thousand. I negotiated for more, and glad I did. A few years after I left the company the company sold and got a payout of around $75k after taxes. Some of my friends who got in sooner got substantially more than that. At the time I didn’t ask a lot of questions about the value of the shares or exit strategy because I honestly didn’t think much about the being with the company long term - it was a temporary stop for me. I was there 2-3 years, just long enough to vest most of the shares.


What level are you joining at? IC? Manager? Director? VP? C-suite? What geo is the startup headquarted in? What function are you?

I interviewed for a job I really, really, really, really want today… Send me some good vibes please! 😬


I’ll be having a convo next with where I tell my manager I got another offer, how do I ask for a counter offer without demanding one? All the things I’m looking for (WFH, title change) are things I’ve been asking for. For example,I’ve been doing the EP role for a year without the promotion.

If a firm sent you free tech for WFH (monitors, docking station, keyboard, and mouse), are you obligated to return it once you leave? Obviously will return the laptop, but was wondering if it’s normal/expected to keep everything else. Insights appreciated! (Relatedly: laterals, do your new firms send you stuff or give you a stipend for your home office? Assuming at least partial remote for now)


I am so happy to not be grinding out 1065s, K1s, or 1120- RICs anymore . This role I’m talking to cpa firms about outsourcing work, tax software companies, mapping data, educating client representatives about tax issues, I’m making 30% more , less hours. Someone change my mind here with work being outsourced to India and automated - is the accounting profession about to change ? Especially public accounting ? I hated getting back some review points on returns .


Does Deloitte offer Kaiser Insurance?


Favorite pop punk hit from childhood that you blast through your earbuds while you brood silently about the client pissing you off


Noogler here (haven’t joined yet) Is there an allowance for WFH equipment?


I have a legit medical exemption for the Vax. Does this mean I cannot go into the office and client cite? Will I be forced to work from zoom? Also will everyone think I’m antivax and judge me?


When should I tell my boss/team that I’m expecting? I’m fully remote and don’t have to worry about “showing” at work, but want to give my colleagues ample heads up without jumping the gun too soon


When you join an MLM Zoom call as a courtesy to your friend and the other MLM person works at your company O_o


My fiancée left her job last summer for a 3 year theology/divinity program at an amazing university. She felt like she was falling behind not having income, so she left the program after yr1. She’s had a very hard time getting back into work. She’d previously worked at Lyft as a specialist and wants to take a stab at consulting. I’d assume she’d have to come in as an associate/staff or possibly experienced hire. I’m just getting my start in consulting next month. Any advice for how she can?


Anyone else here kinda obsessed with the Taycan Cross Turismo? Such a dream car. 😍

Got an intracompany transfer offer for US and Australia - where should I head? Longterm goal: live in the US and work in tech (esp. Google). US offer: L1B visa, not transferable to other companies. Greencard uncertain. TC n/a but probably 🥜 Australia: work visa transferable, Sydney or Melbourne. Work in AU, switch to Google -> relocate to US. TC probably 🥜 too


Coming back from paternity leave in a few days. I want to quit so bad. So so bad. I also would like to make director so so bad. But I want to quit so bad.
