OPERATIONS MANAGER (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – January 15, 2018
There was always plenty to be done and seemingly not enough time to do it all, but that's typical of any startup. It's really up to you to establish your own work/life balance by naming and sticking to your boundaries. If you ever have too much on your plate, you have to speak up and advocate for yourself. This is true of any job, but especially important to keep in mind when working for a startup.
I appreciated that I had the flexibility to work from home, but also had a cool, modern office to work in as well. The people are awesome. Very few egos getting in the way of work being done efficiently and effectively. People who don't fit the culture typically stick out like sore thumbs right away and don't stay for long.
There are quite a few younger folks in management positions, which is not necessarily bad, but sometimes you need leaders who are more experienced. That said, there is a lot of support around development but it's a little less evident if you aren't in the administrative or management roles. Again, you have to advocate for yourself because the company is still in its growth phase and figuring things out, e.g. career pathing or learning and development.
Catered "lunch & learn" 1x/week, modern offices, egalitarian structure, not ego driven, mission/values based, lots of opportunity to grow.
Some processes are unclear or inefficient and you feel the growth pains as a result, for the amount of work you do you may feel like you aren't paid enough, career pathing options are really unclear if you are in any roles aside from administration, phlebotomy, or office management.
