To clarify, this is not for a driver role 😝 it's to join the launch team in new cities

I had a interested conversation with someone in my network. Total BAMF. Serial entrepreneur, invests in multiple companies, etc. He was saying how today people think the business model is based on capital. But it should be based on revenue and people like us (consultants hoping to jump to start ups) need to be VERY careful. You only get to jump once (he said this because we are Chicago based and the start up community is very very tight, aka word travels). You need to find a company that has revenue and a proven growth record or else you'll end up in a situation where you'll hate it. Companies like Uber had a lot of capital but they still aren't generating money in most cities. I thought it was interesting so I thought I'd share :)

OP, how did you get this? My ultimate goal is to do international launch. Did you go through referrals? Direct application? Also how many years into consulting are you?

Hey A1 I haven't cleared all the hurdles yet done the analytical test next is a VC with a General Manager. I got a referral from someone who left my company and joined recently. I've got 3 years exp.

It's essentially driver management / driver recruiting. You do some analysis to figure out times when you need more drivers on the road but then it's just sending emails and recruiting drivers to get out in the road

Nice! I got to the final round for their ops manager role. It's been over two weeks and I still haven't heard back...clearly not getting it.

If it's the Operations and Logistics Manager role I'd advise against it

D1 - That's the role. Why do you say that?

D1 how come? What roles do you think are good instead

I applied for GM role, passed analytics test then got set up with a call with another GM. We had a great conversation, then I got an email 2 days later they were going in another direction. I think internal people get those jobs. Many hoops to jump through at that company though.

Just got off the phone with someone who has just started there. They're loving it - the process of launching in a new city.

I think launching is very different from the ops job. The launch job sounds awesome!!! I'm so jealous OP. Thats been my goal. GOOD LUCK, KILL IT

Thanks brah. His job title is ops manager rather than launch but he is doing more of a launch job which I think will morph into ops (hiring drivers, tracking numbers throughout the week) etc

Nice! Also where are you located?

I feel like I’m losing grip on life more and more each day. I seem to be on edge at all times during work. Don’t feel like I have control over anything anymore in my life.

Fishbowl needs to add a new reaction: “unhelpful”

likefunnysmarthelpful

Thoughts on leaving written (upwards) feedback for someone on the way out? For example, if a senior manager or partner was extremely out of line on a project. Feels pretty kamikaze while they could make life miserable for me, but is there a case to make that the company should know about their conduct if/when i choose to leave? Curious if anyone has any experience or thoughts with this kind of thing?
