This post is great and perfectly refutes their points. They want unconditional loyalty to a low-paying, high-stress job that might sell out or go bust any minute. And for startups in the VC game, they give drip-drops of equity that will never amount to anything even if they did get a big buy-out and then might be asked to move to another city or just laid off. All for the "opportunity" to work there? I don't think so. Maybe I'll just go work for a company where I can work 40 hours a week with an extra 50K a year and build a startup of my own on the side.
