Despite a visionary founder tackling a stodgy industry ripe for disruption with a steady stream of recurring revenue from the start, this great long form article from BB highlights what happened when the HR firm had some epic HR problems of its own.
What happened when an HR firm had some epic HR problems. From David Sacks walked into Dolores Park Café in San Francisco to talk to Lars Dalgaard, a venture capitalist, about what he should do with his life. Or rather, his money. Sacks, who is 43 and has thick gray hair and blue, protruding eyes, made his first fortune as an early executive at PayPal, then a second as the co-founder of Yammer, a social network for businesses, which he sold to Microsoft in 2012 for $1.2 billion. He played in poker tournaments, produced the film Thank You for Smoking, and became an early investor in Uber and SpaceX. But by the fall of 2014, he was sick of jumping from hobby to hobby. He wanted in on a startup again.
