Hey guys! I just want to ask. A friend of mine just recently have this part-time job from a starting company although they are really famous in another city here in PH but she's still a little skeptic because it is her first time being offered a stock options rather than salary. Actually I'm not really sure if there are no salary included but the employer just keeps on going on with stock options. He also gave my friend a NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement). My questions are: Do startup businesses offer stock options? What are the Pros and Cons of a stock options? How do you open up to the owner about the salary without having a negative assumption to you? Does this deal really have an NDA? Thanks in advance!
