Stock depreciation and TC

I see a lot of impressive numbers on Blind, which I assume are greatly augmented by a long-running bull market.

Let's say a new hire is unlucky and joins at the peak of the market. If stock performance is poor for a year or more, will FANG or other public tech companies take any action to meet minimum targets for such employees with unfortunately-timed hiring dates?

    They are aware of the fact that of the stock goes down considerably you are better off quitting and getting rehired, so there is an effort to try to offset declines with some extra grants, but there is no hard rule here and in if there’s a recession then you’re sort of out of luck because you’ll see hiring freezes and they know you will likely just stay put.

    I cant say about others but Amazon assings you a Target Comp that you must hit. This Target includes a yty stock appreciation (I think it is 15%). If the stock overperforms you take home the difference. If it does poorly, theoretically they give you more stock until you hit your target. I don't think the latter has happened in the last few years.
