I’ve become convinced that too many of us don’t prioritize our employment choices properly. What recently drew my attention to this was a conversation I had with Dell’s CFO Tom Sweet at Dell Technology World. We were chatting about Dell’s problem attracting employees. Because Dell is a private company, few employees get stock or stock options — they get cash instead. It seems that has put Dell at a disadvantage when competing for top folks. However, I started to wonder whether Dell’s employees were at an advantage rather than a disadvantage.
