What should I know about stock options as part of a job offer?


I was offered a promising job at a startup. Part of the offer are stock options. There aren't any written details yet, but I wanted to know in general what I should know about the stock option package before accepting the offer. Is this something I should ask a lawyer to have a look at?

Some start-ups will flourish - and many will fail.
Don't rely on the stock options. If / when the startup flourishs, see them as windfall profit.
BTW, "It is difficult to make predictions, especially about the future." (attributed to Danish politician Karl Kristian Steincke)
All the best!
