    I worked at Graphiq full-time

    Pros

    One of the most talented teams I've ever worked with. Members of the product team were given major responsibilities right off the bat, and taking initiative and owning your career was highly encouraged. I got to pick the projects I wanted to work on and any support I needed was given.

    Cons

    The company is very young, and there's not a lot of experienced managers. They've done a great job with management training, but there's still a wide range of competency in middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on the tools and technologies that others in the industry are using. If every other product team uses Jira, train your staff in Jira so they don't fall behind the industry standard.
