The culture at most companies develops over time, interlinked with the business as it grows. While every start-up is different, it’s easy for company culture to diversify and segment as a business scales. In my time as a People and HR specialist, I’ve seen how company cultures can drift, creating pockets of people or even whole teams which aren’t connected to the wider business and its aims. In my experience, it’s most common for engineering teams to become gradually isolated from the pack, or treated differently. And when companies let this happen, the negative impact is felt by all.
