I Wish I’d Known That: Mistakes to Avoid When Negotiating Your Next Position
Managers of fast moving companies are often so focused on the business that they neglect their own employment and compensation terms. Our panel, including a leading compensation consultant, a compensation attorney, a corporate attorney and an entrepreneur, will discuss items to consider when negotiating your next job (or renegotiating the current one). We will draw on our own experiences to address key employment terms such as:
• the size and structure of equity grants;
• how to deal with dilution;
• how to preserve option value post-termination; and
• the best time to ask for protection in connection with an IPO or sale (hint: well beforehand!).
