All start ups are sinking ships, right until their next raise, whence they immediately start sinking again. It’s a game of faith in the founder, not financial analysis.

If you will be doing SnO I guess that you may want to list metrics you’re interested in and ask the CEO or hiring manager for getting answers, you’ll good look at their eyes, you’ll know what are you signing for and later some of those can become your KPIs?

thank you. I didn't want to come across as money focused or prying, but your take allows my question to be answered while being sincere and looking good.

Full books for 3 years is meaningless. You care about sales growth, cash in hand, next tranche if the round was tranched, and burn rate. What happened 3 years ago has no impact on the future.

You also want to see the Capital table.

Just ask?

Like can I ask 3 year financials or just burn rate and last round's size? I think this is a fair ask, but wanted to know if this is typically made available.

Seeing the wave of layoffs and hiring freezes being announced is sad for impacted employers but it will do good for the industry as a whole. This will force companies to prioritize, become more efficient and will cool wage inflation which has been out of control in tech.

Fingers crossed it’s not the beginning of an extended recession but just a much needed market correction.

Looking for some advice on a career change. I work in a technical role and have well-developed soft skills. I want to transition to UX (w/ focus on accessibility).

Reviews also vary wildly. Are these more expensive programs worth the huge increase in cost?

I have a new employee that started last Monday, unfortunately it’s not going to work out. Long story, but we’re fairly certain the individual is using Meth and appears to have started/restarted fairly recently. I work with physicians, so it’s a consensus.
