Looking to buy a non-Apple tablet for my adult son on Cyber Monday. It will be for casual use, mostly for streaming movies, but would also like to use Microsoft 365. Any suggestions? If he wants to use it for gaming, how would that change your recommendation?

It's a start up, so you get to have your hands in a lot of different projects and activities that you wouldn't necessarily be exposed to at a larger company. You can learn a lot in that respect and it's a good resume builder. Most of the people are nice and good to work with. I was paid well.
The CEO has no business leading the business. He's a very smart individual, who excels in academia and engineering, but he has no clue how to successfully run and scale a business. He needs to step down as CEO and bring in someone more experienced in that area if he wants any chance of the company being successful. He's a terrible people manager who gives no feedback and doesn't set clear expectations. (at least on the non-engineering side of things) The Chief Sales Officer is extremely difficult to work with and everyone has problems with him. The CEO gives him too much deference and influence. His sales team consistently underperforms, yet it's the individual sales people that get fired instead of him. It's time for him to go. In general, though they promote a culture of lifelong learning, they don't set anyone up to succeed and don't give you the change to actually learn and grow in your role. They just fire people left and right. I've never seen such a high percentage of a workforce fired in my life.14

Remote, decent pay, AI-focused tech & strong engineering teams. There truly are some brilliant people at the company once you look under the hood but unfortunately, with the lack of quality leadership, none are set up for success. It is a start-up so it is what you make of it - not for someone who needs a lot of structure in their day
Very toxic remote work culture promoted by first-time executives across their leadership team. CEO, Ops, Finance & Product live on the west coast of the US (PST) with a +7/8 hour difference to the Sales, Marketing & Engineering leads who live across the EU (UTC). This creates a significant amount of internal disconnect, miscommunication, and unresponsiveness forcing mid-level workers to be online around the clock. There is little to no KPI structure so top performers will continue to be overlooked until this is solidified. You will likely see a more senior role open up on your team before getting a nod at promotion so I'd highly suggest negotiating the highest possible salary.10

At Workera, I truly experience the "one team" spirit. It's not just something we have written down as our values; it's something that is truly lived by every day. Everyone in our company is always ready to help and support each other whenever needed. Many exciting opportunities are ahead with the introduction of LLMs (Large Language Models), where realizing our big vision is suddenly months away, instead of years. It's an exciting time to be part of this company.
As with any startup, at times, it can be chaotic. As a leadership team, we need to do better to make sure that we remove as much unneeded chaos as we can.

Flexibility, collaboration, horizontal structure, openness, and overall employee wellness
Being a remote company working closer with teammates is sometimes missed. However, this is something that would happen to any remote company and is not specific to Workera.

Workera is a place where you are 100% in the driver seat of your own career. What you put in day to day is what you will get out. You will be surrounded by some brilliant individuals and personal growth opportunities can be found everywhere.
This is not a place for someone that needs a lot of structure in their day to day and someone that is not good at keeping themselves organized

At Workera you'll find: - Caring group of people who open opportunities for each other. - Mission-driven people who are passionate about talent, education, and technology (AI). - Deep expertise in the team in areas of AI, enterprise software, psychometrics, and talent/education technologies. - Culture of lifelong learning and reinventing yourself continuously. - People who are determined to succeed and one day make the company's vision a reality. - A company that embraces a fully remote approach and trains its employees to work remotely effectively.
Workera is not a "laid back" company. Team members are quite determined to make the company's vision a reality and you'll need grit/drive to fully enjoy the ride. The company's approach to building the team is akin to Netflix's high-talent density (professional sports team) model. Not for everyone!5

Workera is my third start-up and stands in a league of its own. The leaders have an incredible vision of handing people the knowledge and tools on how to upskill. At the same time, the leaders are humble enough to allow the team to step up and foster a culture of feedback and inclusivity. One of my favorite things about Workera is the diversity of the team - you get to work with people from all over the world and with very unique and inspiring backgrounds.
As with any startup, there is a degree of self-management to achieve work-life balance. I think management encourages that balance but of course, the stakes are high to achieve everything,4

Great mission and lots of exciting things to work on. Everybody I met at the company is empathic and willing to help or answer any questions you have.
It's a startup. Lots of things are yet to be defined.2
