If I prefer startup or corporate life is dependent on the culture within the employer you are working for.
I work for a big company. But I work in a small team (10 people per team) which is part of a bigger department which is part of a bigger company which is part of an even bigger company.
I want to work at a company where a startup culture lives. Transparancy and a flat organizational structure is important. We as a team are the most knowledgable about the product we build and therefore we can make many decisions. We know who we need to make the right decision. I am not simply going to do work that is given to me.
I want to work for a company with a startup mindset, working lean where failure is also a success if learnt from.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
