But critics of stock options claim that the disadvantages often outweigh the advantages. For one thing, many employees cash out their shares immediately after exercising their option to buy. These employees may want to diversify their personal holdings or lock in gains. In either case, however, they do not remain shareholders very long, so any motivational value of the options is lost. Some employees disappear with their newfound wealth as soon as they cash in their options, looking for another quick score with a new growth company. Their loyalty lasts only until their options mature.

Hey Joe,
Thanks for the explanation but seeing as how so many Start-ups are using employees or contractors accross international borders, I 8767 d really appreciate a break down for how NQSOs are treated for citizen and non-citizen non-residents.
