Our culture has been splintering for months. Members of our core team have been shepherded into conference rooms by top-level executives who proceed to question our loyalty.
People keep using the word paranoid. Our primary investor has funded a direct competitor.
This is what investors do, but it feels personal: Daddy still loves us, but he loves us less. We get ourselves out of the office and into a bar.
We have more in common than our grievances, but we kick off by speculating about our job security, complaining about the bureaucratic double-downs, casting blame for blocks and poor product decisions. Still, we are hopeful. We reassure ourselves and one another that this is just a phase; every start-up has its growing pains.

Employee branding shapes employees’ behavior so that they project the brand identity of their organization’s products through their everyday work behavior.
Change the world around you. Help humanity thrive by enabling — next! We work hard, we laugh hard, we give great high-fives. I get a haircut and start exploring. Most start-up offices look the same — faux midcentury furniture, brick walls, snack bar, bar cart.
Interior designers in Silicon Valley are either brand-conscious or very literal. When tech products are projected into the physical world they become aesthetics unto themselves, as if to insist on their own reality: A book-related start-up holds a small and sad library, the shelves half-empty, paperbacks and object-oriented-programming manuals sloping against one another.
