OK, thanks for your input. When I started, our company did give stock options to employees, and 8 years ago a large investment company bought into the company and our options were executed (or whatever the term for that is–the company remained private), and I got about $50k out of the deal. But no options were distributed thereafter, at least not to most employees.

My assumption was that there would be some kind of immediate benefit to employees when the IPO went thru–perhaps they would plan to give out options to employees shortly before the IPO.

But I guess, according to you, a scenario like that seems unlikely. So it doesn’t sound like there’s much reason for me to stick around.
