Discussion on: Do you work at a startup ?

Hard to succinctly put it after so long in a start up that is now transitioning to a company

Pro: You often hold many different roles/wear many different hats and get to experiment with lots of different things.
Con: The company can unexpectedly change direction as money from funders comes in that dictates which projects you do.

If you are not able to adapt easily and just go along with things then you will struggle in a start up. But it can be incredibly rewarding when you start seeing your hard work pay off.

Degrees matter less in some fields while others it is a huge thing so know the field you plan to do the degree in. And who you want to work with.
