My point was focused on the fact that it SHOULD be the case. I acknowledge that it is not the ideal for many people. But to strive to work in a place that is would be my main objective if I was in the market.
It cuts both ways(not just the Risk-taking part) but also Salary needs.
We don't really know what the Prospective Employees Drivers are and how Important(or otherwise) Money is to that person involved.
For instance(for example sake);One Person who applies is Single And Earns Cash only for themselves then they are more ready and willing to take such risks.
In contrast another Person who has atleast 3-4 People Dependent on them for money(sometimes more,looking at how high today's Unemployment numbers have gone in America currently & also the fact that Disposable Income has shrunk rapidly) one realizes that such folks need more Stable Income to make ends meet.
So you need to Balance your Salary offering and Stock Options so that its tailored to the needs of not just your Company but also the Employee concerned (if you want to maintain a lasting relationship that is).
The Valley is such a place where you need this Level of Dynamism in Thinking as nobody stays with you for very long otherwise.
@Tech4People, i'm married to an innovator (he's a big data engineer) and i'm glad to see that now he's management, he doesn't try to undercut people's salary even though the technology is very cool. Here the valley, people will often do cool stuff for less money if they also get stock options. Everyone understands that its a big gamble but there's a big potential upside. THe innovators are often willing to take the chance.
Effectively both of us are saying basically the same thing(in Different ways).
Simply saying I will pay my Employees the Highest Salaries on the market is not going to keep them with you(if the work atmosphere is atrocious);On the other hand a company which pays the Lowest Salaries on the market will also struggle to hold onto Existing,Valuable Staff.
