ars126366dNothing to do with startups and everything to do with shitty people
Voxera113616dThis sounds more like old entrenched enterprise dev team than startup.
The main problem sounds like the CTO that treat development as his private domain and not as a part of the company.
Get. Out. While. You. Can.
( Of course first find a new position )
anasr326dI'm surprised you still work there, I can never handle such toxic traits in work/team environments.
john-doe8996dActing offended is being used a manipulation technique in this scenario.
You have to clearly stablish boundaries.
Technical reviews should not be dismissed based on feelings.
I see this as a lack of ownership and character.
Congratulations, you encountered a group of cowards. 😅
Can happen in startups. The original team often gets praised as gods because they've built the product from the ground up, so management think they're awesome, because in their eyes building a working product with crappy code is far harder than maintaining it, that's what the plebs do.
Get out now. It won't get better. Company might survive, but any dev will be a nightmare.
jeeper58766dTbh read your legal docs and get started with building a competing start up. You already know how to deliver and get multi million dollar contracts
Get out of that shithole as soon as you can. Its all about internal power games there, even if you come up with some genius ideas you will get shot down and best case scenario you will get gaslighted and other devs will take your credit for themselves. Literally no point to stay there, unless you enjoy the drama and being berated all the time.
i22j3326d“In any type of institution whatsoever, when a self-directed, imaginative, energetic, or creative member is being consistently frustrated and sabotaged rather than encouraged and supported, what will turn out to be true one hundred percent of the time, regardless of whether the disrupters are supervisors, subordinates, or peers, is that the person at the very top of that institution is a peace-monger.”
I always prided myself on being a person of tenacity. Experience has taught me that I endured a lot of hell because of that stupid pride. Find another gig ASAP and walk. Best of luck!
