What I wish was different
The company strategy and processes changed constantly. This made it hard to follow a clear direction and plan ahead. Moreover, I did not feel trusted to make decisions within my expertise. Everything was consensus driven, which slowed down the work and created unnecessary conflicts.
I felt that I was not compensated fairly for all my work. Get any compensation agreements in writing, well ahead of time. Another thing that disappointed me was the lack of equity. I was promised equity multiple times after signing an offer, but never received it.
Finally, I did not have experienced employees I could learn from, and the level of sophistication was very basic. I wanted to work in a more professional, challenging and stimulating environment.
