Tobias Peggs: Just got acquired? 10 adjustments to make when working for a Big Co.

tobiaspeggs:

I just left Walmart.

I arrived in September 2011 as part of the transaction that saw OneRiot acquired by the world’s largest retailer.

We had some clever technology for targeting relevant content at mobile consumers based on their social signals, not to mention a super-smart team of Big Data…

Nice post on navigating big companies. Certainly a lot of this resonated for me based on my time at CBS. I’m now taking the reverse approach and I’ve spent the last two years learning how to operate at a start-up pace.
