I got a job offer from a startup with about 70-80 engineers. I'm a
fresh PhD. What percentage of stock options would be a fair price?
They gave me a good base salary upfront, making me feel a little
embarrassed to negotiate with them. I'm getting about 0.01%, whereas
in Table 3-1 of your book, an entry-level engineer is expected to get
0.05%. I know every company is different, and the amount you get
varies depending on the maturity of the company. How could I evaluate
my stock options, and should I negotiate for more? How could I find
out if the company is in series A, B, C, or D (honestly I don't know
what that means)?
