When you come to the Mothership,

drop by for a visit. If you don't vest, bail, and live happily ever after...

It won't be retiring money, but it might be "get rid of some of the mortgage" money.

Here's hoping you get enough money to retire happily ever after...but if not, I've heard good things about working for Google, even from contractors.

Nope. We'll get accelerated vesting, but I really don't have that many options—the company was 8 or 9 years old when I started.

but if not, I've heard good things about working for Google, even from contractors.

Oh, yeah. :-) One thing that will make a difference to retirement is that they match 401(k) at 50%.
