Anyway, so today's fun with the startup was I was asked to go to an offsite sales meeting at a resort. Room and allegedly transportation would be paid for.
When the founder said this outloud, we were all quiet. Until founder goes, "uhhh yankeehack, I understand it might be hard for you with LO to make this, so uh, let me know if you can't." Ya think bud?
Then later in the morning, I was going through my work email, and found the founder's end of year update email. He attached a spreadsheet with his "growth plan" we had been asking for. I didn't bother to audit the growth numbers - because he's pulling that out of his ass. And as for growth in people, he literally just put some handwavy with no timeline at all "We're going to need to hire some marketing, sales, support and developers." Dude is so fucking out to lunch that he refuses to believe we need developers and data analysts.
But the best part is when I happened upon the spreadsheet with his plan for raising our stipends to "market rates"...let's just say my market rate at a non-startup is at least double whatever the fuck number he came up with.
I just laughed. There is nothing else to do. I let annoying co-worker know about the numbers (he hasn't responded as of yet).
So I am doing what what I was before the break and just keepin' the work gmail tab open while I do other things like applying for other jobs.
Anyway... I have one potential place that I really want to hear from as their process stalled in December, but other than that, still looking.
