Equity negotiation tips..

Jun 5 10 Comments

How do u negotiate more equity when you don’t have competing offers. I joined uber in 2016 and had 500k work equity. Assume 10000 stocks at 50$ each.

Fast forward today I have vested 3 years worth of my equity and when I interview recruiters try to say well if you leave uber you only leave 120-130k on table considering current uber price. This is wrong assumption considering if I was in my 4th year at uber I would only leave 40-50k on table.

If I was to resign and rejoin uber I could get 800k worth considering today’s stock price.

What are your suggestions?

      If you resign and rejoin the same company, can you piggyback the same h1b?

    You should never reveal details about refreshers or initial stock grant. You should just keep it to TC for recruiters only if they ask. That keeps conversation simple and to the point.

      Well what if they are ex of uber and now at your competitor?

      I don’t want to make a number saying I was granted 1 million equity when I was not.
