Quote from this article on The Washington Post.
At the time, Uber's valuation was around $68 billion. It is currently worth $45.9 billion, based on its Wednesday share price, about 44 percent lower than its IPO valuation.
One Uber employee who joined pre-IPO says they were given an offer sheet that assumed the stock price would range from about $40 on the low end up to around $100. The dip in price was made worse by the fact that employees owe taxes based on the IPO price of $45 a share.
Some Uber employees think now is the best time to join, because there is only going to be "upsides". Thoughts?
