|Say, hypothetically, I'm starting a new company that's extremely tech-heavy and I want to recruit the best engineers in the world. Fairness, recognition for effort, high hiring bar, the best equipment... all things that are important.|
Why not go an extra step to be fair and make everyone's compensation public, including the founders? Why not open up the cap table to everyone, employed or potentially-employable? Then there's no question as to whether a candidate is getting a good deal.
What could possibly go wrong?
