How to evaluate equity?

Do you typically evaluate an RSU offer with the preffered share price or 409a price?

For context, say you have an equity offer of 300k. The preferred price is $50 and the 409a is $30. Should you expect 10000 shares or 6000 shares?

    you will get the 409a price. that’s the definition. you should *evaluate* it as zero, however

      Because you don't think Uber will IPO, or you think it will drop to zero?

    409a price = FMV you’re getting common RSUs

      Does that mean I should use the 409a value when evaluating the offer?

    Well, at least for Uber. I saw most blind posts use 409a price (i.e., $40.88) for offer evaluation.
