Apparently "Google Stock Units" are restricted stock rather than options. If they vest over five years (I don't actually know but this is common elsewhere), 200 shares will be an extra $20k/year or more. Well, unless their stock tanks.

Thanks! I'm particularly amused that using google couldn't provide any help in figuring that one out.
