I currently work at an international startup in Asia that has been around for more than 5 years, and I am currently going on 2 years working there.
The problem is lately, many of the startup's plans are not being done, product development is halted, resource allocation is in disarray, many people are leaving. If anything, from my point of view, it feels like a place where a group of freelancers work to make ends' meet rather than striving to be a professional company.
I talked to the directors about this issue. One of them said all is well, nothing to worry about, we are in good place, etc. Another said that he recognizes my concerns, and he laid down the plan that will be put to place to handle the issue (decreasing people turn-over, focusing on the products etc.).
Both gave different answers, and unfortunately, the latter is currently overseas dealing with our international clients and he will be there for a while longer, therefore he does not have control at the office as much as the former.
I know a startup is difficult at the beginning, but I want to ask everyone in this community for advise, specifically:
- Is the condition I explained above normal for startups in its age?
- How can it be better?
- Should I start sending resumes?
Thank you in advance
