Calculating Stocks

May 19 8 Comments

1. Are you calculating TC with the total value of stocks per year?

2. When you look at an offer do you calculate the stock option offer as yearly or total amount?

Current TC: 290
YOE: 6

    That’s what is called inflated TC, you should always calculate TC at the grant date. Even for refreshers the calculations have to be on grant date. Actual TC is base + bonus + rsu/4 @ grant date + refreshers-rsu for every grant date but people on blind believe in inflated TC

      What about companies like amazon that don’t vest their stock equally over 4 years? Does the same formula still apply?

      No, then you would use the appropriate formula for the vesting schedule.

      TC should match up with what appears on your W-2 at the end of the year.

      For amazon they compensate their future employees with sign on bonus for 1st and 2nd year along with 5 and 15 percent of stocks

    TC is always a yearly amount.
    Let’s say you’ve got 150k base, 10% bonus and 400k in RSU over 4 years. Your TC is 150 + 15 + 400/4 = 265k

    I’m calculating my tc with the future value of stocks that have been award in the past. Jfc it’s not that hard man.

      Here’s why I asked:

      Someone said I should ask for 100k worth of RSUs. Did they mean per year or over 4 years?

      100k over 4 years or 25k per year unless specified otherwise. This is the standard way to talk about rsu.
