1/16    Fred Wilson says you should focus on the cash value of your
        options, not the percentages:

        \_ Or at least, so says a VC trying increase his profit margin...
        \_ A VC wants to keep as much of the stock for themselves (and give
           as little to employees as possible).  That maximizes their return.

        According to this report, 28.8% of the jobs in the
        Sunnyvale-San Jose-Santa Clara area are considered IT. Is this

A Primer for Surviving a Recession > January 31, 2008, 2:51 pm Tech Salaries on the Rise. If You're Male Posted by Ben Worthen The average entry-level tech worker made $41,457 in 2007. Most of the graduating computer-science students at Stanford already have job offers for more than twice that amount. And thats just the least shocking disparity in tech-worker pay scales. com, which found in a new survey that most information-technology pros have to work for 15 years before receiving an average salary of $93,000 a year. And if thats not enough, Google is offering these 22 year olds $95,000. Thats about 30% more than the $70,000 a year the best students at Stanford were offered last year a pay raise substantially higher than the 17% IT workers averaged in 2007. com did find that tech workers there have the highest salaries in general at about $94,000 basically what Google and Facebook are paying college kids. com survey found that other than senior leadership, the best paying tech jobs were project managers ($101,292), systems developer ($88,361) and database administrator ($85,092). The worst paying jobs were desktop support specialist ($46,458), help desk staffer ($41,154), and PC technician ($36,974). The most shocking finding at least to us is that women tech workers made on average about $9,000 less than men. Amazingly, the average female tech worker didnt get a raise last year. com's business-technology blog focuses on the technology that businesses use -- the hardware, software, services and know-how that can make or break a business -- and on the people who deploy that technology.
