Explain like I'm five: Why do companies give such a chunk of compensation in RSU? How much are they really worth?
Why do a lot of tech companies give a significant portion of compensation in RSU? What are the pros and cons of RSU vs base?
I have an offer with high TC (166) but lower base (105) and another offer that has just a high base 141 with no bonus, equity, etc.
I know everyone here focuses on maximizing TC. However is that always the approach that leads to the most money in your bank? For example I know that equity is taxed at a higher rate than base salary. I'm very confused with how much liquid, disposable income each of these offers will result in after taxes
