@stsp Honestly, I don't like working for start-ups. They promise all of these grand ideas and outcomes, but more often than not just result in one being overworked in the extreme and underpaid.
It's a culture that pits people against each other in terms of who is willing to be exploited the most to the the 'best'.
Toxic is a great word for it. They are just not healthy places and they rarely turn out good work.
