APM offer evaluation

Nov 8, 2019 8 Comments

I received an apm (associate pm) offer as a new grad position at a small-mid size company and I wanted to see what people think.
Base: 125K
Relo: 10K
Location: Bay Area

It’s a private company so theyre also giving some options but theyre not liquid and they only become valuble if the company grows as its expected.
Theyre getting back to me about a 10k sign on to see if thats possible. I tried negotiation but they decided to standarize the offers for the apm class.

    What percent equity do you have? What could that potentially be worth for options?

      It’s a small percentage and based on their projections it should be worth 90K in 3 years but even if that’s true, since it’s a private company the value wouldn’t be liquid

      In my opinion, equity may be lowballing you a little since you are not a known quantity and given there are higher equity offers coming out of school for more stable companies.

      I have a friend who is a pm for a startup($70 million round completed). Base 100k, not sure how much bonus or equity. I think your base is fine comparably, but I can’t speak too much for equity. He is now the longest tenured employee and went from APM to basically PM lead in 2 years so growth potential was fantastic.

      Enjoy the grind!
