I have been asked to be the head of Product Development and join a very, very early stage startup (pre-funding).
The Founder has 5 people on the team working part time for 1% of stock. I am concerned that equal distribution for stock among employees is a "one size fits all" approach where the portion of the effort may be disproportionate among the team members. I also feel that working for 1% of stock seems low for such an early stage startup that has no funding, no board members and a solution that while conceptually is good is not ready for prime time. I would like to know if there is a benchmark for stock distribution or data points that I can use to negotiate more stock?
