Do most VC’s operate like a start up? Just got an offer and they don’t even have a benefits sheet for me to look at (like a mobile stipend, gym stipend, etc.). Literally just base comp, carry, PTO. And haven’t met a single person from HR. Is this normal or a bad sign?

VCs are a bit like mba programs imo There’s a lot of them out there but the quality control is lacking - which vc you end up at really matters. Based of the limited info I have I’d say you’re either at a newer vc with opportunity for growth, a struggling vc, or a vc that just runs real lean

like

VCs usually list the names of all their general partners, investment team members, and admin staff on their website. You should be able to check. If they haven’t listed any HR folks or don’t have a fully fleshed out website, then they are probably small in size.

And also a gym stipend?! What is that, $50 a month? Just negotiate it into your salary if it matters that much

Agree with what folks have said above. Additionally, VC firms usually run super lean, even larger established funds like Sequoia or NEA are relatively leaner than growth equity and buyout shops. Part of it is a function of the fact that smaller funds sizes mean less fees and less ability to hire large back office / admin teams. Wouldn’t let that put you off but just make sure to do your due diligence on the GPSs, their fundraising history, and what deals they have led recently.
