Have any of you ever worked for a start up?
I got a job with a start up a year ago and it's been an interesting ride, but it's starting to get old. We've had 2 layoffs followed by hiring sprees. Our job descriptions change at the drop of a hat. Im assuming this is typical. How long will the craziness last?
A friend did. She started full of enthusiasm, and getting paid to travel to places that were incredible for someone in her field.
Then budgets were gradually cut, the trips stopped, and gradually so did the paychecks. She ended up keeping the good company laptop, because it was pointless to sue broke people for back wages.
Q: "How long will the craziness last?"
A: Until you get a job at a real company.
