Of course it’s not the low salaries (based on industry standards) that push the executives to succeed but rather the company’s planned IPO which some analysts believe will value the company upwards of $100 billion. For example Mark Zuckerberg could be stuck with a massive $1.67 billion tax bill once his company goes public, not bad for a guy who could instantly be valued at a worth of more than $26 billion at the time of the Facebook IPO.
Basically it pays to work at Facebook but it pays a hell of a lot more when the company goes public in a few short months.
