Compensation and Equity Calculator

Receiving a job offer from an up-and-coming startup is exciting. It can also be confusing, especially when it comes to determining what their proposed compensation package is actually worth. Of course, there are other things to consider beyond salary and equity when assessing a job offer, such as benefits, retirement plan options and other perks. You’ll also want to determine what type of benefits are most valuable to you in your personal situation.
