    I have been working at Granular full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Amazingly kind and smart people. - Neat mission, with the ability to make an impact directly to farmers. - Super close relationship with their customers. - Willing to take the time to understand what's best for the users, and invest in that.

    Cons

    - A lot changing (also a pro) from the org level. Can lead to a shaky ground at times, or uncertain outlook. - Energy & focus can be lacking at times.

    Advice to Management

    - Focus, focus, focus. There is always a cost to doing several things. Understand which things you truly want to invest in from a product side, and focus solely on those things. - Keep doing a great job being transparent and listening for feedback from employees.

    I have been working at Granular full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Offices have been really well run at times, some teams within Granular are bright driven and there for the right reasons.

    Cons

    Kinda the worst of both worlds (no longer a startup but still REALLY disorganized but without the big company pay or perks) rapid turnover, few original members of Granular are still with the company, pockets of really confused teams, leadership easily influenced by technobabble, offices jockeying for power, integration of Corteva has not gone well, jerks are tolerated and promoted, communication among teams and offices is not at all managed well, apps themselves apparently have technical issues.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what you want to be and stick to it and hold leadership of low-performing groups accountable.
