I was offered 1/4 of shares after 1 year then 1/48th per month. Which obviously after 4 years all the stock will be vested.

Is this a standard deal for graduated vesting? Its fine for me as I plan to stay 5 years anyways if this job works out.

Yes. I saw many folks sit on their options until we closed the doors on the company. They got $0. I got two Harleys and countless other toys from dumping my options at the right time.

Bird in the hand vs. Bird in the bush. Get some!! And......"offered"? Hell, they were given to you. No cost if you don't exercise. If employees work hard and make the company profitable, the stock goes up and you have FREE MONEY!!!!
