When is a co. No longer a ‘start up?’ Considering a co w/@500 folks, 9 yrs old…. Has larger subsidiary w/@1000 folks. I’ve never worked outside of companies that were essentially monopolies with a lot of stability/longevity. However, there is typically little room for growth esp for women. I’ve tried long enough and am exhausted. I want to be somewhere with growth potential. I feel like my experience is making this new co seem more scary than it is…. Thoughts?

This question might anger some, but not meant to be provoking. Does anyone else feel that half the jobs in tech (scrum master, project manager, product manager, etc.) are more hindering than helpful? I feel like productivity would sky rocket if we didn’t have 10+ hours a week added of admin work/agile ceremonies/status meetings, and you just let developers and analysts do their job. Why are we spending hours learning how to estimate story points (for example) rather than improving production?

Applied for a role internally and feedback from 1st round interview was positive. However, I was told there’s strong external competition who have more experience in the field and likely to get the job. Hiring manager told me to consider a different open role in the team where I’d be a much better fit. The other role isn’t exactly what I was hoping for but could be a foot in the door. Has anyone had similar experiences? I don’t know whether to abandon this completely or remain persistent. Thx!
