Eat What You Kill
The one thing that really irks me about (OVERLY FUNDED) startup compensation is the insane/vague amount of money being paid to talent.
Apart from the fact that it kills creativity and sets the wrong culture (of mediocrity), it is bad for the economy as well. For e.g. now that recession is around the corner (or has already hit a few segments), most of these fellas are and will struggle to get a good job - have often seen how this leads to depression and suicide.
But that’s a diff story.
What I am trying to bring upon is more accountability and focus with ‘Eat What You Kill’ culture, especially in leadership teams (we are implementing and all of our hiring is based on this).
For e.g. if you are a marketer - apart from a standard CTC, why are you not enabling sales? And if you are enabling it, take commission as well (make A LOT more money).
And if you aren’t enabling sales, why do you even exist?
What are your thoughts on " ‘Eat What You Kill’" approach towards leadership compensation? Why are CEOs of startups being paid so handsomely, ensuring they have no long-term focus in creating a revenue business?
Why not eat-what-you-kill?
PS: ‘Eat What You Kill’ is an analogy - please don’t bring veg/non-veg related conversation here.
