I remember interviweing at companies and they would always try to toss in a "bonus" as a perk and I would stop them there. I never wanted to hear about bonuses. If I got one great. Otherwise, just tell me what I am getting in salary and the rest is gravy if it happens.
I have a friend who is a millionaire today by getting hired at start-ups offering stock options.
He did it three times.
