    Does Microsoft have a Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP)?

    Yes. The plan allows employees to purchase common stock at 90% of fair value every three months. You can purchase stock worth up to 15% of your compensation during the offering period.

    What are Restricted Stock Units (RSU)?

    An RSU is the right to receive a share of company stock after a vesting period is satisfied. They are offered to employees as a form of long-term compensation. The employee receives the stock, and is able to sell, once they have vested. RSUs are considered ordinary income on the day they vest.
