Google negotiation question

Havent gotten numbers but wanted some advice on when to bring up last yr bonus as salesforce pays out in april.( as it is 15% of base dont want to give away current base, but was told sign on is case by case so recruiter asked for paperwork on bonus expectation. As there is an offer review committee not wanting to run them through multi stage reviews etc)

Also i have 100k ish unvested stock at salesforce. Is this just exchanged for the google equity offer?
Ie say they offer $200k over 4 yrs, can I say I have $100k that i give up here so consider that? Or is the expectation that the existing stock is included in the offer as it is higher than what one has?

    If you haven’t told them about the stock yet you could wait until after the offer to bring it up as a request to increase the stock portion of the offer.

    Ya salesforce is quarterly vest so every quarter looking at a small amount $6k ish . Will find out when the google stock vests.
    The bonus idea you gave is really good and we have an article on this too that I can share with recruiter on multipliers and dates.

    Appreciate every ones comments

      Google vests as a function of grant size. The idea is they want you to have at least one share after tax for each vest event. There isn't a cliff any longer from what I understand.

      So it could be every month, 3 months, 6 months, or once a year.

    Id indicate that the bonus is historically on a target amount that has a multiple based on performance. Example. People at your level typically expected x amount with up to say a 3x multiple. You don’t have to provide bonus paperwork and I don’t believe they can ask that. Hence why they ask “expectation”

    As for equity. Is there a year cliff? Or does stock start vesting immediately? If a year cliff, then you need to leverage that. Example if you have 50k that’d vest before your first amount at google that’d be your delta and that needs to be replaced somewhere.
