How does stock bonus /refresher works?

FANG salary (or similary bay area) posting with bonus numbers, i understand it vests over few years (e.g. 200k/4years vesting). 
  • How about next year after joing? 
  • How does refresher work after 4 years vesting cycle?

You usually get more year so that after a year you’ll be vesting stock every year. I got 80k that I got 1/3 after a year then I get vests of the remaining every quarter over 2 years. Yearly refreshers are set up so that by the time that’s done I’ll already be vesting more.

Stock incentives are always set up so you loose money if you leave and if they stop giving you refreshers they probably don’t care if you do.

Thanks @idk123456! It will be great if you share some insights on refresher. Is it similar range (80k rage?)? When do you get refresher (after 1 or 2 or 3 years)?
