I'm not sure I like this
To be sure, it is nice to see employees getting paid for a great contribution to their company. You even feel in this case, they should have gotten more...
However, I do not like the idea of having more and more expensive lawsuits between companies and employees who disagree on the exact amount they should be paid. In my ideal world, such compensation would be fixed by the law, and not subject to vague words like "outstanding benefits", whose meaning can be decided only in court.
BTW, saw today an ad for a management school:
"Ideas do not rule the world, but their management does"
How's that for an absolute statement of superiority of management over techies?
