Know your hat size, if you make it in you'll be wearing many of them

Senior Data Analyst (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

Pros-Role and responsibilities can be flexible depending on your expertise and interest
-Virtually no complacency--people want to be there and do their best
-Strong VC culture focused on growth and innovation
-If you're not smiling, you're doing it wrong

Cons-Myopic strategies roll downhill and result in re-work, re-planning, re-teaching during reorganization and attrition...aim further and the line will be straighter
-Creativity can be frustrating during clear optimization tasks
-Legacy system support and agile development are practically oil and water
-Typical start-up ADD

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers can be crap funnels or crap umbrellas--it's coming down either way! Managers are responsible for the process, NOT the product, so recognize your important role in reducing friction and bringing out the best in your people. The wins belong to the bottom tier.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
