Wired has an article about how it’s becoming more difficult for startups to hire people at low salaries with crappy benefits in exchange for potentially worthless stock options. All I can say is that it’s about time. Speaking only for myself, what matters most is quality of life at the company. I’m not willing to take a job that requires me to sit in a shoebox every day, spend my entire life at work, or deal with lots of stupid, pointless bureaucracy, it’s just not worth it.
