Do Startups Have a Drinking Problem?
Sarah Jane Coffey

Oh boy. Yes they do. Thanks for writing this. Truth. All of it. As a white male, I can nurse a beer or my one cocktail all night while my colleagues get trashed and I don’t take any hits professionally. Women are pressured by “you’re not drinking fast enough” comments all the time. I had a recruiter tell me over the phone that “we’re all about the drinking here”. That was her way of selling me on the company. We’ve been talking for 10 minutes. These people in their 20s haven’t lived enough life for 2–3 of their friends go into recovery. They haven’t seen the washout yet. Great topic.
