Discussion on: Do you work at a startup ?

Pro: Everything I do impact directly on the final user. Which in my case are people seeking for jobs. That adds purpose to my work and makes me excited to get out of bed every morning and go do something for them.

Con: Lack of processes/structure. I feel like the things I needed most (recognition, feedbacks, support for professional development) I needed to fight for and also bring ideas to the leaders. Also, it's very easy to give your all and lose balance of work/life.

BTW, there are a lot of startups in different stages. For me, I wouldn't work in a startup that is working/finishing their MVP. I feel like the con would be even bigger.
