Nothing that you wouldn't see out of every other smaller business with a startup culture - this company isn't for clock watchers and mouth breathers:
1. It can be hectic at times (very fast paced, changing priorities).
2. Some have mentioned this expectation of long hours. In reality, not when I had left - there were people leaving at normal times.
3. Lack of processes (relative to a large corporation)- again, this happens with all small businesses.

Sometimes it pays to slow down to then speed up even faster later.
