I'd have to disagree. It isn't in a corporations best interest to deny a finance stream generated by ALL levels of employees. Keeping it exclusve to
just high up executives only limits the amount of capital that could be generated.
Of course that is true,
but many big companies either don't understand or simply don't care.
or have a different agenda however complicated it may be.
The ESOP plans include everybody, but are fixed from the start and don't allow adjustments for things that CO points out.
3 or 5 years down the road can change the outcome.
If an employee quits prior to the vesting, their awarded shares disappear and are never exercised.
And of course if the share price is lower at time of vesting (and up to expiration), nobody gets a dime (no liability either).
A true working system goes back to CO's original plan.
The flow of compensation needs to be steady and timely to be truely effective.
