This paper is a loose translation into English of an overview article, written for a Russian audience which has limited experience with stock options. We offer guidelines on the role that stock options can play in an overall compensation package, how these options should be structured, the incentives they create to either take or avoid risk, and the potential benefits and risks from using options as part of an overall compensation plan.
