Stock Option Problems
from the getting-them-back dept
Here’s a really big issue in the startup world that is almost never discussed. Early stage startups give out a ton of stock options early on to anyone and everyone. Very often it seems they end up regretting that decision. In this article the main story they focus on was a promise to give a guy options for a recruiting job he did. Then when the stock went public and the guy tried to cash in his options the company told him it was no longer valid.
