When you're no longer able to hit someone from across the office with a nerf dart


Why 500? How do you set that number and how do you keep a "startup" vibe with a larger number of employees?


Over approx 150. Look up dunbars law.


I think it's more about size of company and culture which probably changes around 500 employees. That or a 1B valuation.

Right after you've left out of frustration

When they stop hiring idiots who do nothing but break things down, that's when it's more creative. And vice versa, when startups start hiring process managers and people who do nothing but nag on people, there goes the innovation.

I have a good amount of training/learning experience but I don’t enjoy it. Trying to transition into HR roles but it’s not going well. Is it a terrible idea to apply to learning roles just to leave...


Best reasons to tell the firm why you’re relocating, go:


I’m a Canadian looking to move to NYC in the next year. Post your best advice!

Just FYI, if you ever miss an issue in an agreement that you don’t catch until late in the deal process, don’t try to blame it on the other side to your client. You’ll get caught.

Any diplomatic tips to get interns/juniors to work faster?

Without having ever experienced the hectic nature of being in the office, ours seem to be working at a snail’s pace (3 billable hours to copy 4 blogs over to a different platform? With no SEO or image research? Dream on... 🐌) and considering it to be working under pressure. I’m not expecting the world from them and understand it’s a learning experience... but also want them to be working faster to be able to take more on. Unreasonable?
