I work for a start up that allows crypto trading and the biggest complaint I have is that when you come from more professional industries, you notice your peers are lacking in certain professional or business qualities. The finer details will fall on you. Most crypto companies are startups and I personally do not thrive without a clear business model. You’re constantly overworked, ideas are stolen, you have to prove yourself. Many peers are recruited from college, making the workforce dynamic even more challenging because while college grads may have ideas, they lack all professionalism and ask for help before even attempting to find the answer on their own. You have to coddle them because you will be a threat, coming from a different background and industry. You will have to make yourself small until you find your sweet spot within the company. Share ideas, but realize the more you share, the more enemies you’ll make. Everyone wants to share their ideas for clout these days, so professionals genuinely concerned about business/industry are seen as “not fun” or “not a team player”. This industry is very much college frat vibes. If you do get into this industry, my advice is to apply for a job with a clear start and end time (back office/PR) something where the day is done by 6pm. Roles like product manager, anything hands on, is going to cause burnout. Crypto trades 24/7 so there will be some on-call or overnight days, depending on your role. The industry is moving faster than we can keep up.
