I'm at a lost and could use help from you all! I am in the middle of re-negotiating my contract at my current start-up, and they've decided to extend it until end of March.
Two questions I have about it:
1. Is it possible that they've strategically timed the contract for the duration of renewal because they have an IPO date in mind? So even IF they decide to convert me to FT, I won't be eligible for stock options?
2. If yes to the above, is it worth it for me to negotiate for a shorter contract window? What are actions I can take to put myself in the most ideal situation to take advantage of stock options? I don't know the IPO date.
Unsure of how all of this works, would love to hear form those who have been in similar situations!
Thank you ladies!
