Most startups offer stock options.

Most public companies in certain industries (tech, some fortune 500) offer stock options and/or Restricted Stock units.

Not everyone qualifies, especially at more traditional companies where they are reserved for upper management.

You’d rather have RSUs than options. I work for a private startup and my 1 year cliff just ended… cost of the options @ strike price is like $20k… and who knows if they’ll ever actually be liquidable (and at a price higher than the current strike)

I am curious about this as well

What are you specifically referring to when you say "stock options"? Typically bigger public companies offer RSUs and some startups offer stock options at some strike price (I'm not too familiar with the latter).

Find a place that gives you RSUs & then allows you to purchase via ESPP (at 15% discount) - this way you really get stock if you want it

Hello!
I am currently a substation design electrical engineer 1.

I am making $71k a year from a large Consulting firm.

I have a bachelors and masters degree in Electrical Engineering. I have passed the FE & PE exams, I am an EIT, and I have a year of experience outside of school. Three internships as an engineer while I was in school.

I feel like I am underpaid and would like to know the thoughts of others. I feel undervalued in comparison to what other companies over that do the same work.
