You're right. It impacts morale, other employees wonder if it's time for them to go ... it definitely presents challenges. Time for that other post on communicating change to employees.
Ditto for marketing and product managers. It's amazing how many times people create companies and products without ever seeing a real customer.
I laugh when I think about some of the true start up office conditions. At Evergreen Assurance, Chris, the founder, had a wooden table he found at a yard sell. He brought that table in as a group desk into every company he started. I'm still picking splinters out of my arms 10 years later. I'm sure everyone that experienced that table will remember it forever.
