Google the word Culture
Brian Patrick Cork: The story laid-out below is fairly common.
However, my experience with Google developers/ engineers, for example, is the average pay is roughly $160k. They get some provocative variable incentive that includes different classes of stock.
However, when they can liquidate that stock is a key part of the equation.
Many of them get starry-eyed over paper wealth. So, it’s all relative.
By the way, and this is my primary point, here… This situation does not just apply to Google. The example plays-out universally.
I feel the primary attraction for people to work at Google is terrific leadership that is relevant and maturing, and a commitment to great culture and a sense of awe and curiosity. That is what is tough to match for other companies.
