Buffer recently published a full roster of all employee salaries. Do you think this is good or bad for startup founders to do? http://qz.com/160348/why-a-startup-just-published-all-of-its-employees-salaries-for-the-world-to-see/
I have managed startups as well as mature companies. I personally have never been part of a business that has publicized salaries, except as required by law in the context of securities regulation. Publicizing salaries might serve the personal interests of certain kinds of founders-those who want to appear benign and generous in the case of high salaries, or those who want to appear mean and all-powerful in the case of low salaries. There does not appear to be any legitimate business purpose served or advantage gained by doing so however.
