I'm currently employed at a "top" tech company, which is a joke because 90% of the people I interact with are unfocused, disengaged, deliver-crap-and-call-it-good-enough, family-first execution-last folks. We have way too many executives who contribute less than nothing to our group's output. These executives eat first and leave us with zero incentive to make a difference. The big tech work environment sucks and I'm tired of living in it. I want to win. I want to work with winners. And I want to be compensated for winning. If that sounds like your startup please feel free to reach out.

I've encountered this kind of situation myself.

How common is this in big tech firms?

Is it common at the FAANGS?


Startups co-founders/first-employees pay less and have fewer perks, but no one can hide in their own cube corner at that size and have deliver excellence if they want to survive.

If it were me, I would insist on equity, be it co-founder, first-employee or employee at worker-owned co-op. If the company profits and you helped it get there, so should you.


I admire your desire for success. Too many of us get lazy and do just enough to get by.

what do you even do? Are you a full stack developer? data science? product design? product manager?

Pfft and you call yourself a recruiter. Eric here seems to have a background in economics and patents (probably has a PhD) - but he also has experience with Python and enjoys the board game GO.
