    You sure you didn’t miss out a 0 in the RSU?

      That's meaningless (the number of stocks). Since you don't know the value at least you should know the % you're getting.

    • Lyft hmm!
      The valuation is well known.

      Sorry but the valuation is nonsense at this point. Until a company goes public you can't say a thing. Look at Uber, you folks are not home safe yet.

    • Lyft hmm!
      That's absurd it isn't "nonsense". This isn't some early stage startup with highly speculative investment rounds. There are large investors actually paying for shares at this price in 10-figure transactions. Whether there is an IPO or an acquisition, and whether it will be far above this price or even below it (highly unlikely), the idea that the current valuation is meaningless is simply unformed.

      And if you are an old hand and have options you can sell them in the secondary market at close to these prices.

    Level4? Nice base, nice stock, i’d not thought twice on this.

      What’s Lyft’s stock price? I mean 11000 shares translates to how much in stock?

    • Lyft Lyftsoft
      450

      In that case the offer is surely better. 40K more in base (even considering there won’t be any bonus in Lyft) and 10X+ RSUs (that’s a lot even though it’s pre IPO).

    Well what’s the current per-share value of those 11,000 RSUs?

      Around 450k total on rsu

      what would be the value of shares if an employee leaves the company before the IPO ?

      I wouldn't be surprised if someone at MS at L62 and still makes less than Oohayy though. Staying at one place for too long can do that to your TC.

    I wasn’t aware Lyft has an office in Seattle. What’s the current estimated value of Lyft’s stock price. I think it was around $33 per share sometime last year. Your base is much higher but not sure what’s your RSU estimate is.

    Seems like a good offer. Money aside you’ll also get to build much more with less politics.

    Take Lyft, but negotiate for more equity. You can probably get at least 14,000 RSUs

    Lyft is more volatile, but the payout could be better based on future performance.
