I think we are in agreement about the risks. My new employer is a foreign company and its shares are not registered under the securities act (they are ADS which are traded on OTC) which is why the one year holding period applies. It is not a vesting period, just the result of restricted shares. No guarantee for a minimum future selling price.

The other thing I don't like is that dividends are required to be reinvested (no discount) for non-retired workers.

My bonuses are partially dependent on share price increases so it is probably best to pass on this at this time.

I'd still be interested in other thoughts if anyone has them.
