    What would you do as a Groupon employee

    You got in from the start. You have worked 70 hours a week with no vacation for the last 18 months.
    You have a rather low salary but you were granted 10K shares of the stock.
    When it was at $25 you were swimming in cash. Could by that new house and car you always wanted.
    Now at $19 your dream is slipping away.
    If it goes down to $9, your dream will be gone and you will have lost 2 years of your life for NOTHING.

    When these shares become unlocked, would you not sell as quickly as possible?

    Smart employees would take out a loan or max the credit cards. Take that money, and from a brokerage account sell deep in the money calls. June 10s. That essentially lets you sell today and not have to wait until May. Locking in a sale at $19.
