Cons of working for a start-up:

  1. Yeah, big companies pay more initially than a start-up and come with comfortable benefits.
  2. You have a lot of things to manage at a time.
  3. Relatively low job security when compared to start-up
  4. You may not get compliments or appreciation for the work you have done.
  5. Your boss may get angry on you for no reason because he himself will be under pressure.
  6. You won’t get typical (9-5) jobs.
  7. Foreign trips? Forget it. Don’t even imagine for another country trip.
  8. You may not get good infrastructure.


Don’t worry, Having said these, there are a lot of real, and career defining reasons to choose start-ups over MNC. Like-


Pros of joining a start-up:

  1. You will be provided with more opportunities.
  2. You were able to try different hats. (different things)
  3. You can learn from true innovators.
  4. Flexible atmosphere.
  5. You can work in an awesome atmosphere:
  • No dress code (I can wear whatever I choose to wear)
  • I will enjoy my work by cracking jokes
  • You can drink beer on your desk! Provided only on special occasions. 😉
  • You can work with the people who have that same spark like you.
  1. You can learn the things that will help you to start your own business someday.
  2. Absolutely no office politics, hence you need not waste time on that.
  3. You can learn more and be a better person in a shorter span.
  4. An interesting, and challenging atmosphere.
  5. You can work in the way you want to work

But, if you ask about Big MNC’s. It is another way around. The pros of start-ups will be the cons while working for MNC’s and vice-versa.

To sum up, working for start-ups is more risky, provided with fruitful benefits. This exemplifies the saying “Higher the risk, Higher the returns”.

However, joining a start-up or MNC depends upon your career goal. But I can strongly say that Working in a start-up is like investing for your future. Yeah, you may earn less than your friends did, but you worth doing that by end-of-the-day.
