How does the work being done for a startup make any difference as to writing quality code? In my opinion putting "startup" in the title is just click-bait.

More about documenting the journey than clickbait - keeps me sane. Been working on a startup for near on 15 months (which is nearing a breakthrough). Two, working in enterprises has a very different approach to working in startups. It is a genuine situation, and a lot of discovery.

I've worked lots in both environments and they are both exactly the same: they want it done yesterday (and then are surprised the quality is poor)

Do your own startup George? Or at least create your own products solutions and try to sell them? I read some of your posts and obviously you have a strong ability and interest in development. Thing is - nobody cares about what you do, and more about as you say, wanting it done yesterday.
Kind of why I went on a different path from consulting. But it takes a lot more time than I thought. Anyway, have a good day.
