Stock options tho.
09-05-2013 , 05:26 PM
my stock options are worth about 5k in total, and finish vesting in 3 years :P

Given the size of my employer, I doubt there is a tremendous amount of upside there. Now if I had held on to the stock options I got when I started (when it was a different company) 9 years ago, that would have worked out somewhat better.

$5k?????? Oracle?

You need to talk to your boss.
09-05-2013 , 05:40 PM
well named, you probably suck at negotiating.
09-05-2013 , 05:45 PM
I am guaranteed to suck at negotiating, but these were options I had from the old company that got converted.

You seriously need to get in touch with some headhunters and find out your real market value.

$5K worth of options? What's the point? (Even $50K over 4 years is a little wtf - The market has sky rocketed in the last few years)

Unless you are getting another form of profit sharing that you haven't disclosed.

well yeah, the truth is I would have gone looking for another job last winter if I didn't actually already have one :P That's a whole separate story of course. The situation is a little goofy because of that whole thing. But as far as the current full time job I don't think my situation is very far removed from the other employees here.

My original stock options when I got hired (right before the old company went IPO) were worth about 60k at the time of the acquisition, but I had sold all those several years prior. The year we got acquired I got some additional options which I think had a fair amount of upside at the time, but with the acquisition it mostly vanished. SuperHugeMegaCorp stock is not going to double in price or anything.

So at least in the options regard the fault is mainly mine, but I don't mind that. I started out at a pretty low salary (not having any college degrees and not a very impressive resume) and just treated them like annual bonuses. Ah well.

you don't pay recruiters, just go on some interviews and get some offers

Well there's a world of difference between options on 500,000 shares at .01 below current value and 5000 shares at $1 below current value assuming your company's stock trades in a typical range.
09-05-2013 , 06:29 PM
that is true, but we're talking about a few hundred options $14 below the market value
09-05-2013 , 06:34 PM
options love variance, time to ramp up the risk in your work.

i tipped her $9 on the $60 haircut. she seemed insulted/disappointed to me, but there's about a 60% chance i was just being paranoid.

i only get my haircut a few times a year, so it's not THAT expensive. and she does free clean up haircuts a few weeks after the paid haircut. i tip her $10 for the free one.


and lol at cutting corners off maps to reduce weight for backpacking. but i guess i would do that too

and i bet 25 of 30 women sent in pictures of kids
09-05-2013 , 06:41 PM
25/30 is a crazy sheep, yes? So why hasn't anybody guessed the answer?

Need more women to answer.

Neither myself or anyone at the table had the slightest clue how much was in the envelope, and whether or not it was enough money to loosen up. I even asked the host to give us a range of how much might be in the envelope, but she wouldn't tell me. In her defense, she was definitely English second language and may not have understood my request.

Anyways, I had JTs in the small blind and called a small raise and then dumped the flop when I missed, which I would have done anyways, so didn't affect me. But the pot was multiway to the river, and although noone showed their hands (noone called the winner's river bet) a couple guys said they would have quit the hands earlier w/o the added money in the pot.

Anyways, the winner of the pot opened the mystery envelope and pulled out a lucky $1. now I have no problem with the casino symbolically giving us a "Lucky $1" for Chinese New Year, but I think it was grossly negligent not to warn us the money in the envelope was trivial to the stakes we were playing, as I think it did cost a couple of the players some serious $$.
