Joined a new company recently inhouse after 4yr fast-pasced & agency deadlines & I'm still not comfortable w/ this new pace, nor how things are being run. There's a lot of idks, a lot of disconnection between business and leadership, but product/tech/design seems to be on the same page - ish. I really hate that we go around in circles and go back to zero after several weeks. No one is putting their foot down but I also qn if I'm being stubborn from agency life & should I just ride the wave?

1) feasibility and how money is spent is really important so it’s better to take the time in house to get the idea right — make sure you speak to the roles so if you’re talking to an engineer speak their language. Also helps to break the idea into shorter bits with dev so it’s more digestible. For example focus just on the first time user flow instead of end to end

2) you have to hone in on the skill of convincing people to be on the same page. It helps to bring them into the process early so they feel like they’re a part of the solution and ideas along the way. Keep getting feedback from all parties and a good percentage will back you on it when it comes time to decide.

3) honestly enjoy the extra time. You can get away with doing far less work than you would at an agency and have a much better work life balance as a result of it. Maybe use the extra time learning the art of playing the politics
