Description: There are several kinds of equity used in the tech industry as incentive to retain employees. Some packages are more generous than others, and the kind of equity you are offered will vary. This talk will describe common questions you should ask when equity is part of a compensation package, terminology you might see, a brief description of some of the tax implications, and determining the value of the equity for negotiation purposes. The webinar will finish with a Q&A session if time allows.
