Really depends on what you're doing.

At Reddit my team is about 21 right now, probably 25 early next year (though there are also contractors). 7ish are community relations, 6ish run and develop programs, and 5ish are because we also own customer support. If we didn't own support we'd probably lose those 5. If we didn't have a nascent international program we'd be smaller by 2. If we hadn't deprecated one of our support responsibilities and built a lot of autoresponders, we'd probably need 3-6 more people. We don't handle trust and safety issues; if we did we'd be many times larger.

So ultimately, I think it really depends what you are owning and how efficient you are at doing it.
