Discussion on: Do you work at a startup ?

Pro: Decent control over company success and personal career growth. If you're determined to take on a challenge it's a lot more likely you'll be able to do it in a startup vs big org. Get to learn what true failure can look like vs big org where everything's a bit abstracted away.
Con: Typically lower wages, but not always. Kind of depends. Probably less guidance/time from managers, need to figure things out on your own and be okay with having to retrace steps when direction was wrong.

Both environments have their own unique flavors of toxicity and abuse.

I think it's probably emotionally easier to leave a big corp if things aren't working out vs startups.
