How much did you make in your IPO or acquisition as a non executive
In startups we are all sold to take a lower paycheck and we could make it big but all my data points point to non executives usually making out with the same if not less than working at FAANG
Here are my data points. All acquisitions by major corporations or unicorn companies.
Acquisition 1 - nothing
Acquisition 2 - 150k
Acquisition 3 - 350k
Acquisition 4 - 300k
Usually equity for an experienced hire will start at around 300k for your first 4 years from my experience at faang and only go up from a decent base.
Why the f does anyone do startups?
