I worked at Strands

Pros

In a software startup environment, ideas flow freely. People are less concerned with procedure and rules and more willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.

Cons

On the flip side, there are few procedures or rules. Management changes its mind on company direction often, and when that happens, heads roll.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice would be to pick a direction and stick with it. I realize that life as a startup is a life of danger and volatility, but in order to keep employees productive and not constantly fearing for their safety, some sort of assurances must be made.
