I liked working in a team where I had so much autonomy. Since it was a small team my role played a big part and everything I did had a big impact on the final products and mission of the company.
What I wish was different
I wish I could have worked more with the engeenering team to see how they were incorporating our suggestions from the marketing team.
I would say always use your network, that's how I got this job. Know what you want and find people doing that. Then while you're on your job make good relationships so you can further expand your network.
