An interesting post abouts The state of startup compensation, H1 2022
- The median company valued at $50 to 100 million employs 52 people in addition to the founders. Once a startup hits the $1 billion mark, it typically has more than 700 employees.
- Smaller companies have a larger percentage of senior employees (levels 7–11) than mid-level employees (levels 5–6), but this pattern inverts at around $250 million in valuation.
- If this trend continues, companies could look abroad for talent more now that US cities are equalizing. New talent hubs may emerge outside of major cities.
