I have been working for a small startup in bangalore(1.7 years), The team size in India is about 6 personal and Until recently we had a senior guy who used to take care of all the logistics , such as getting a internet connection, deciding which workspace we work in(We work in a shared workspace) etc.
Now recently this guy quit and now i am the most senior guy who takes care of the basic stuff. Ofcourse there is nothing much to do , except inform the seniors (The CEO) if there is something the indian team needs , Now recently the net connection needed to be changed and i asked the CEO about this and he told me that i can get the connection and pay for it myself and that he would refund the amount in my salary(The amount i need to pay is about 20K INR), which is close to what my salary is. I am a bit uncomfortable doing this. Also the seniour guy who left the company, his salary for the last month was't paid , so that gets me a bit worried too.
I know the decision is dependent on my personal judgement, but is this something ok to do in a small startup ?
