Can anyone recommend good books or articles on startup org charts and hiring? Think we’ve hit early signs of product/market fit, but not sure who to hire next, in what order, and how the org should evolve over next few years.

Not sure if there's any good one size fits all advice, but as an attorney who represents and diligences many startups, I'll note that after a startup raises money, you usually start to see more growth-oriented people (e.g. people working in signing up customers / partners, people working on branding and marketing) and administrative people (a CFO, an HR person, etc.). It sounds like you are still in the very early stages though, so it might not make sense to hire anyone, depending on your runway (hiring people is expensive!!)

It depends. You, the founder, would know the answer best based on the direction of the company. If you’re unclear about it, make sure to talk through your thoughts with a mentor. That really helps, based on experience..

Frustrated - I am being considered for a role that would be quarterly travel. The rest remote. I’m currently 100% remote now. My husband is against me taking it since it would be a lateral move.

Any signs of MBB travel hours/week changing significantly post-pandemic? Alternatively, are there any particular projects at MBB with less work hours/week, say like a defense gig? I’m really just trying to not scare myself away from MBB, but WLB is very important to me. Currently at Big4 with a fairly nice WLB and I’d love to pursue a MBB opportunity post-MBA for potentially better business experience/exit ops (more Advise work vs implement/operate done at Big4)

McKinsey has pretty traditionally been considered the best of MBB, followed by BCG, then Bain.
