    Can’t wait to calculate how much my RSU package would be worth on my lyft offer I declined a while ago

      How often does that happen?

      At Amazon, it happens if your VP knows you and values you or your L7/L8 are willing to fight to keep you. If you were a TT or are on critical path for a D team/S team goal, it helps too. If you are just an average HV SDE2 on a big team, no luck.

      Hi Snowflake - whats your yoe? And education background?

      It is very difficult to satisfy all these requirements. Easier to interview and jump the ship. Simply too many stars should align. It is easier to be TT sde2 than TT sde3. Though, sde3 has a better chance for visibility at L7 / L8 levels.

      Ah thought it was amazon terminology, hadn't heard it elsewhere. But did hear it is Amazon culture to not have your question answered.

      I thought you have to be there a year to get the 15k

      So do the math...
      Let's say stock goes to $50 and you are able to vest and sell all.
      15k into 50 is $750k
      If you sell short term, company will remove the ones for taxes..at say highest marginal rate of 40% which is most bonuses get taxed at so you are left with $500k.
      If stock is at a different price you can do the math.. But half a million which is not bad for a years worth of work

    OP
    Lyft Inc. is pre­paring to list its shares on Nas­daq around the end of March, ac­cord­ing to peo­ple fa­mil­iar with the mat­ter, as the ride-shar­ing firm’s hotly an­tic­i­pated plan to join the pub­lic mar­kets comes into fo­cus.

    Guys how does one buy pre ipo shares?
    Feb 21 8
    • If however you can somehow buy without a lock period then yeah do it and sell right after 1-2 days
      Feb 21
    • Microsoft MSFTBRO
      You cant short stock when it first IPO’s... because you cant borrow
      Feb 21
    • Google wqIe83
      You can buy on equityzen and sharespost websites. I bought at $50. Let's see how high it goes. (Has a lock period though)

    • Nutanix qtKn88
      @google- $50 seems pretty high. At what valuation did u buy ?
      Feb 27
    • Google wqIe83
      $50 @ 16.6B. Let's see if I get 1.5x on IPO. Won't be bad for six month hold, but I am not allowed to sell for six months after IPO.

  • Nutanix qtKn88
    Do we know at what valuation they are planning to go public ?
    Feb 20 1
    • Apple Icml2017
      No, but estimates are in the range of 20-25 billion (higher than their 15 billion valuation) in various articles over the web.
