Big company vs. startup work and compensation
Fantastic summary of counter-arguments to the “always pick start-ups over big companies” hype. Nice job compiling all these issues.
I have no experience at start-ups, but I have a lot inside big organizations. And Dan’s big company experiences had me nodding my head in agreement. Even though I was in the defense sector and he was in technology. The pros and cons of big organizations seem similar no matter the career field you are in.
But it’s worthwhile to sit back and compare startups to big organizations. Lots of times we just hear the start-up hype, and don’t sit to look at the numbers.
