- engineers are relatively exchangeable, and ideas/execution can be rewarded, but the “internal market” for funding of efforts and the liquid talent pool means that ultimately it’s fair to compensate everyone approx the same
- next big idea is deemed important for survival so culture of reinvestment while not dinging those who take risks is good
Funny though that this can align so directly with the belief that capitalism requires socialism (with differing amounts of each at various scales...)
I've always felt the teeshirts and company swag that gets handed out is basically uniform and cringey as hell. Even worse when people wear them regularly; they pay you to work, not devote your soul for fucks sake.
I’m surprised no one mentioned Amazon here, that place is all about the “Amazon mission“. It wants to become EVERYTHING. All other enterprises should be eaten or destroyed in competition and whole world should be dependent on amazon.
