Few Insights For Employees joining Startup

While working in startup, I was fascinated to see the life of founders and how whole complex process of businesses run. Deciding on whether to join start-up still a big career move in India and it depends upon the answers to questions like Is it worth to join a start-up? and if to join, How to choose between them? Just like many others, I too browsed web, I found this article somewhere just sharing with u….

=> If you’re just looking for a job, you’re probably better off looking elsewhere.

=> Seeks signs of potential future success early. Working for a growing, thriving startup is much more fun.

=> Working long, hard hours is not mandatory, because working for a startup is not mandatory.

=> You probably won’t have a boss. If you want or need a boss, work for a big company.

=> Learn to balance risk. Working for all equity or all cash is not likely the right answer. Be informed. Remember that the number of shares/options you get means nothing. Think percentages.

=> If you’re not building something you think you’ll be proud of, it’s not worth it. Life is short.

=> Be passionate about building a product, not building your resume. If you do it right, an exceptional product will become your resume.

=> Don’t worry too much about being fired. Most startups need their employees more than the employees need their startup.

=> Go beyond just equity ownership, take emotional ownership.

=> If you’re not having fun, you’re in the wrong place.

=> Try to make the experience a success, even if the startup isn’t.
