Pardon me for asking this silly question. I’m one of the Cofounders and my CEO decided to hire a COO as we need to scale our operation.
This new COO will get quite a significant salary while I’m the CTO, who’s been with the company from the beginning will get the lowest salary among the c-level people in our company and the smallest amount of shares as well.
Is these situation fair?
Is it normal that for a Cofounder/CTO, who is the backbone for a tech company get lowest salary compared to other c-level guys?
