Has anyone left to go to a startup/early stage company? I’m interviewing for a role I’m excited about at a company that is aligned with my values and the chance to do finance and operations (I’m in audit, new senior). I’m nervous about making the leap from big 4 with an established culture and generally stable employment to what is essentially a giant question mark. What are some good questions or indications to get a sense of if it’s a going to be a good opportunity or a total mess?
