I have been working at Expa for less than a year

Pros

The work is interesting and constantly changing (never get bored!). There are always opportunities to learn and try new things. The people are amazing with lots of varied experience. Also though,... they are genuinely kind, intelligent, scrappy, & driven individuals. It's an honor to have the opportunity to be exposed to so much talent.

Cons

There's definitely a lot of ambiguity here compared to a longer established company. The upside is that the maturity of the people helps cover for missing structure. However, in the long run, scaling... up means also creating structure and process (which is going to be a series of trial and error). The only other con I can see is around managerial experience compared to a large company. Managers are often used to holding many hats and juggling them, so experience in delegating, communicating, and creating process can be a little foreign. That being said, they are also already working on continuing to educate their managers with regular managerial coaching sessions.

Advice to Management

Keep hiring good people. Don't forget to also think about how to continue growing the people too whom you have hired already. Spend some more time getting feedback from the office. Lastly, continue... to try new ways to integrate the office and companies together. As the office grows, expa will naturally have to be more intentional about finding ways to bring people together so that organic culture and knowledge sharing continues to generate.
