Hello Elphas. I am in the beginning stages of talking to the CEO and other C-suite execs about being the 17th hire in an early stage startup. I have no frame of reference to compare with so I thought I'd tap into the power of this community. Please help me with one or both of these questions:
(1) What are some critical things you'd want to look out for if you are considering joining an early stage startup? Questions to ask, things to observe, red flags to avoid, etc?
(2) Same as question as (1) but are there even more critical things to look out for as the product management hire?
Thank you so much in anticipation of all your great responses!
