we are a startup with almost a year live. None of the employees have ownership/stock and all are salary
No one is invested in the future of the company or what happens to the product because no one is going to be rewarded if things go well. Without ownership or profit sharing of some sort, no one who is worth anything will stick around to work 11 hour days unless the work environment is so amazing that they can get compensated other ways. The reality is, without profitability, those alternative means of compensation (extra hardware/software budget, extra flex time/vacation time, etc) won't hold up for long. It sounds like you are working for someone who has read Spolsky but really has no idea what he's on about. Does your SDLC pass the Joel test? (one step builds, testing, source control, bug database, etc etc). Are you working on brand new computers with at least 2 big monitors and more ram and storage space than any reasonable person should ever need? Do you get to set your own schedules as long as you are meeting deadlines/goals/pushes? Are you in offices or cubicles? If cubicles does everyone have a good pair of headphones? Are the cubicles or offices big enough? Is it acceptable for people to take a break and surf slashdot/Youtube/CNN for a few minutes when their brain buffer is blown and they can't concentrate? I'm not talking about come in and surf for 10 hours, but is it an environment where everyone has to be ultra careful about what's up on their screen and makes extra effort to look busy or stressed out enough to be taken seriously or is it the sort of place where people are treated like adults and given the benefit of the doubt as long as they're getting their commits in, QA'd, and past testing by the next milestone/goalpost/sprint/push/whatever?
If you are working for a startup, you really should believe in and be passionate about the product and the company and they should be passionate about you and your team! If it's really such a great idea there ought to be room for ownership and compensation for everyone involved on the ground floor and even the first couple of floors. People are what make a company great. It takes strong leaders, it takes a lot of faith and inspiration in what you are doing and it takes talented and hard working teams who are united in a common goal of making the best damn whatsy-whosit that's ever been dreamed of.
From your post it sounds like you're talking about a half baked company with tolerable but not stellar management and whatever talent the going market rate could buy. Which can be anywhere from pretty good, to so-so to absolutely dismal depending on a lot of factors.
