Got an offer from Amazon last week and stock crashed by 250 bucks each. Should I call them to reassess offer? I accepted offer, but it makes a lot of difference in TC

    If the stock went up 250 instead and they called to decrease your RSU grant you'd be totally cool with it right?

    Join after a month, they take average of the whole month before your joining date (or some Friday near your joining date)

      Google... It is always a predetermined number of rsus not x amount worth of rsus

      It was amount for me 4 years ago.
      Then before joining (1 week), they determine number and send you a new offer letter with other docs (W4 etc) to sign.

      In my amazon offer it says "Total number of shares are subject to fluctuate slightly based on a 30 day trailing stock price evaluation"

      Yup, it's 30 day average from Friday before the Monday you join, as far as I can recall.

    Did the offer state number of shares or overall value?

      Oh, that is a potential bummer. However, you won't start to see those until you hit 2 years. If the stock continues to stay down by then, they'd give you more shares to make sure you hit your total comp target.

      You wouldn’t have called if the stock went up. They may reassess your candidacy, not the offer if you try it. Is it worth the risk? Remember that you are in this for the long game

    Amzn offer contains number of stocks. Increase or decrease doesn’t matter. You are not going to get your stocks in first 2 years.
