Levels.fyi lists stock as part of TC for private companies like Stripe and Doordash. Where are these numbers coming from? Obviously employees get stock options but typically those numbers are given as either number or shares or % of the company. How are they coming up with a number like $185k/year in stock? Is this some kind of best guess at what the equity will be worth post-IPO, factoring in the cost of exercising? Or something else?
