    $13,000 for 4 years or $13,000 PER year for 4 years? The latter is good, the former is crap for a guy of your experience. Location?

      This has got to be one of the worst offers I have ever seen in my life in the bay area. You have premier engineering experience at GE.

    Hard to evaluate equity in a startup without knowing the float. But 13K seems awfully small % for any start up.

      That's low. But depends on strike price, employee s usually get much lower price than investors I think. Ask for number if outstanding shares and valuation in latest funding round. I'd imagine they avoid this question like most startups do though 😀
