Just have a look at their LinkedIn profiles in LND. Only 1 women in a team of 20 + The former head of the office left in 2017 and started Novalpina which now blew up due to NSO/Pegasus + The partner in charge of the London Office since then is also responsible for NY. 3 datapoints that don’t speak favorably to a good office culture I would say. In my view culture is first, second and third followed by comp.

Have heard anecdotally they have a horrible culture and know several people that have gone and hated it. Paid well/ above market though. This is in the US

Is this recent? I saw some older posts from several years ago about this, so wasn’t sure how relevant it still is. Any further insight on comp?

I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
