If you’re working for a startup or listed company, it’s common to be offered stock by your employer, but the jargon can be super confusing. RSU schemes, ESPP offers, ESS, DDS payments, PAYG installments (urrgghhh) the list goes on. These terms are enough to boggle the mind of even the most detail-focused engineer, let alone the average punter.
And the strategy options can be numerous and complicated. Do you sell, buy more, wait for the long term gain, diversify, or go all in…? Each option has pros and cons, and should be understood so that when you make your choice, you’re confident you’ve make the right one.
