Are there functions that tend to be more difficult to work with than others?

Previous experience has shown that there are more difficulties in collaborations than in functions per se. But at Tide, one of our core values is that we are “one team”. We try not to have internal politics, or clashes between teams. That’s not to say that there isn’t occasional friction, but we purposefully try to avoid it and work together towards one goal. With that said, in every company there can be certain individuals who can become roadblocks. Especially as you scale up, it's impossible not to come across such people. The key is to identify these roadblocks and figure out how to avoid them. And there isn’t a trick to it, you just learn how to work with those people.
