Kondik faced problems to work with the team
There are reports that Kondik had serious reservations to shift the base of the company to Palo Alto. Recently, Kondik openly said that he is having problems to work with another co-founder Kirt McMaster. According to Industry analysts, Kondik departure from the company doesn’t come as a big surprise taking into account the problems faced by the company in the recent past.
