I heard the founder of a crypto startup saying. "I'm not going to invest my time and energy to teach newcomers of my code, most of them leave within 6 months anyway" does this mean i should leave now or when i worked there of 6 months?

Leave now. He’s a poor leader, unlikely to provide development for you or others and will likely do more damage to the business than help.
I’d start searching immediately.


Is that boss a net talent exporter or a net talent importer?

If the first answer resonates, ok.
If not, ruuuuuuuuun.
Why running might be better:
- if he doesn’t have the time to onboard newcomers, why is he sourcing juniors anyway? Not enough money? If so, again run.
- or does he consider that a high resources rotation is part of the business model his so called code? If so, again run.
- or is he expecting a junior to demonstrate a partner’s level at the cost of a junior? If so, again, run.

Best managers I have seen had no issue sharing, teaching or mentoring.

Since you mentioned crypto as the business market, I would advise you to seek another position immediately the reason being that bitcoin lost a third of its value and that that guy seems not to be able to handle pressure. It such case, leaving before being terminated in an excess of anger would be wiser for you.

Fact is if you are considering leaving, it means that you subconscious is telling you to get the hell outta there. Listen to yourself: your question is not about if you leave or not. It’s about when to leave.
And it should be ASAP in such case.
Time is much more than money. Don’t waste it.


Depending on how early stage, you wouldn't want resources that you need to develop. You would need heavy hitters that can deliver cutting edge tech potentially when you don't even know how to get it done.


Scat. ASAP. Take what you can learn in the meantime, but start looking for a new job.


Run! 🏃‍♀️

Out the door now!

This gives you a clear vision about your career growth in there, out now!

Get out of there. Don't fall victim of thinking you need to stay for a set period of time (1 year mark). In the interview, tell the truth that it isn't the right fit and you realized that and are ready to move on.

Any advice? How much would be ok?

So I felt my acting manager, my actual manager is on mat leave, was a bit aggressive in her response to me and I mentioned it to her. Now she is like micromanaging like hell. How do I handle this?
