How do people report their stocks in TC?

Dec 7, 2019 24 Comments

I regularly see 300K offers on here by young professionals. I am curious if people add up their stock to base/ signing bonus or do they average by number of years?

      The shocking thing is how much worse the industry pay is compared to FAANG, and a handful of recently IPOd companies. What you consider to be low MS pay is actually the industry standard.

      It's not that the industry pay is worse, but rather how extraordinary these handful of companies are. We take things for granted way too much.

      So then how do they report TC if hey are talking about a job offer? Stock prices fluctuate, after all.

      ~=, in general, for public companies.

    Everyone has their own way. Mine is:
    Average yearly compensation for the next 4 years = base + performance bonus + cash sign on/4 + initial stock grant/4 + (total stock refreshers vesting during the 4 years)/4 + 401k match + HSA company contribution.

    In short, how much *real money* you pocket yearly.

    I look at my TC for that year or nearest upcoming year if the year is almost over. I haven’t been including 401k match and HSA. Prob should include match..

    The correct way is to get the figure from your tax return.
