As Salesforce gets banned from twitter for tweeting about gun control and the tech industry faces a period of layoffs, startups are having to be extra cautious when it comes to hiring Big Tech workers.
The news of Salesforce’s ban has caused a stir amongst the startup community, with many companies feeling hesitant about taking on workers from established tech giants.
One of the main issues that has been raised is the potential culture shock that these workers may experience when moving from a corporate environment to a startup.
“We’ve taken on a few former Salesforce employees,” said one startup founder, “but the culture shock has been huge. They are so used to having their hands held in every decision and their every move being monitored. We just don’t have that kind of infrastructure.”
The new hires also have to adjust to the fact that startups often don’t have the same kind of financial cushion as Big Tech companies, meaning that they may need to work longer hours and take on extra responsibilities in order to achieve success.
And then there is the issue of Dogecoin. Many startups have been cautious about taking on employees who have invested in the cryptocurrency, as it is still seen as a risky investment.
“We’ve seen some employees who have made some great gains from investing in Dogecoin early on,” said another startup founder. “But it’s hard to trust that they won’t be tempted to take similar risks with our company’s money.”
It’s clear that startups are going to have to be extra careful when it comes to hiring tech talent from Big Tech companies, and any potential culture shock that may come along with it.
