Microsoft gives stock grants, not stock options. Grants are generally better because they'll always be worth something, but stock options can and do go underwater.

Sadly, when I joined Microsoft in 2003, they were still handing out stock options. This means that mine are worth about $240 as of this writing; it doesn't help that Microsoft's stock price has been essentially the same for about five years now.

You'll note that Apple still doesn't expense their stock options in their financial statements.
