Startup growth: oil and water

When you join a startup that is growing rapidly, there are usually two groups of people. The first is the tenured employees who were there super early to get the company off the ground with the founders. The second are people who’ve been at other companies that have scaled to where the company desires.

The two groups integrate at first like oil and water. Instead of picking, “this is how we’ve done it” vs. “we did this at company y” the goal is to blend the cultures together.
