What would you do if…

1. You were at a fintech for 9 years as a loyal Senior Sales Executive
2. Left for a new opportunity with the agreement in writing and prospect of a specific amount of equity at the 1 year mark only to find out that equity is actually shockingly lower than agreed to.
3. A SLT in Europe that has gone through drastic changes and a small North America presence.
4. Your deciding factor for accepting this offer over another one was the amount of equity offered.

Did you get the offer in writing and sign it?


Nowhere close. Well below.


Still, very specific numbers that were well over what the share agreement now states 1 year later.


You potentially can argue you are owed more due to a legal concept known as promissory estoppel.

Is the equity grant now being offered subject to vesting?

What country are you located in?


Great advice, thank you. Yes fumbling seems it. I agree. It could be as simple as raising it to attention and sharing the email. I’ll need to clarify plenty. Although I love what I do, along with the solution, our clients, and have definitely advanced my skills, a pattern of very high turnover is hard to ignore, and maybe this is why. Still, not easy to bring up to a new SLT I barely know yet in Europe.

Are you really surprised? Unless you’re a super early employee or investor, regular people rarely get much equity. Did you expect more than .01%?

Hi everyone !

I currently work in SaaS, and I recently got proposed a Customer Success Manager position there. I was initially looking for an Account Executive position, but I was afraid to be a bit bored, and not to be able to express my creativity enough in this position. From what I was explained, CSM would allow me to work in between several departments and to be very free.
In your opinion, should I wait for an AE role or are learning and growth opportunities bigger as a CSM ?

Is this normal for most companies in tech?
