Silicon Valley companies are actually better than many other companies, because they offer options to virtually every employee, but even there, those options are overwhelmingly weighted towards top management, with each lower rank of workers typically receiving a full order of magnitude less in value.

This is the second aspect I want to shed some light on. In this regard one could further argue that the stock options for employees are somehow askew compared to other stock-options because they are normally restricted to certain situations and scenarios. Stock-options for other investors (often people from the financial sector) are often not limited in such way and therefore, tend to be “better”.
