      Your Manager Matters Most

      Aug 24, 2021 - Research Analyst

      Pros

      Working for a strong manager with direct line to Founder is critical to your success

      Cons

      The more layers of management required to work through without a direct line to the Founder will impair your career here. Most middle management without direct access to Founder are unable to move the needle for themselves or their direct reports.
