Startup NPM Is Struggling With Employee Morale and Culture
Multiple former employees report that the company is facing an internal crisis in its culture. The company is trying to raise more funds so that it can turn a profit. NPM offers a free service to help programmers, but the business model has made turning a profit difficult.
Five employees were recently laid off for signing an open letter to management asking for better working conditions. These workers were agitated by working conditions and were trying to unionize. The employees also filed complaints with the National Labor Relations Board and NPM has settled with three of them.
NMP’s senior management's goals now are to stop the company’s reliance on venture capital. NPM hired new CEO Bryan Bogensberger last year to help the company move forward.
