Not that long ago I’ve been granted a certain amount of company stock options as a Christmas bonus (the company is listed on the US stock exchange. Basically I can buy some shares at a predefined price.
The last step is to accept the grant or not. It seems to me that it can be only beneficial, however before I accept it I would like to ask my fellow Mustachians: Has anyone of you some experience with this kind of securities? Is there something peculiar that I should be aware? Are there some risks/tax implications?
