“We’ve just made it much easier for
team members to leave in one of the
most competitive recruiting environments
of all time. But that’s a trade-off we got
comfortable with.”
PinterestHave Options for Your Options
THE COMPANY
700 employees, founded in 2010
THE POLICY
People who have worked at Pinterest for at
least 2 years and decide to leave for any
reason are given 7 years to exercise their
options instead of the usual 90 days.
HOW THEY DO IT
Pinterest started by gaining alignment on their
philosophy around retention and equity. They
offer some questions other companies should
ask themselves: Do you believe that equity
is part of annual compensation and that your
team should have access to it early? Or do
you believe that it’s intended to be a reward
only if and when the company goes public
or gets acquired? This philosophy will drive
the decision.
