Not really if you join a unicorn, as this article was about. Unless if your grant is relatively very small, in which case you're not getting much benefit to joining the unicorn in the first place, at least in terms of possible stock upside. If you join a unicorn and your grant is anything less than $100k then you're getting a raw deal. (Again, at least in terms of stock upside, there may be other reasons to join.)
