Pro: You get a lot of ownership over what you are working on. You have the ability to have a large impact on the company which is incredibly rewarding. While salaries may be less than the big tech companies, often you can get a decent amount of equity if you come in early enough. And there are a million other pros!!!

Con: Sometimes the benefits are not as good such as 401k matching and health benefits. Personally, my solution is to have a significant other that works for a large company with great benefits and you mooch off them 😉
