The pros of working in a startup as compared to a large brand include:

● Upside: If the startup eventually turned out to be successful, it would be a life-changing event compared to a large brand.

● Passion: Most people working for a startup want to be part of something so special and grow something big. Bonds of passion are formed, but a large brand is already big.

● Breadth: Startups are usually low on staff members; therefore, a young person working in a startup will get many experiences because he would work in several departments.
The cons of a startup include:

● Risk: Most startups don't eventually have a breakthrough. Some reasons are out of one's control and influence.

● Work/Life balance: To startup, one has to be obsessed. This will surely consume time and other aspects of life such as family, friends, entertainment, etc.

When you are looking for a job, there are different types of companies that you can work for. You could work for a start-up company or an established company that is a big brand. There are several pros and cons with working for either type of company. Working for a start-up company will allow for more growth within the business.

You should be able to be promoted more easily and you can grow with the company. With a big brand company, it may be more difficult to advance because there would be more people wanting that job. In a start-up company, they may not be able to pay as much at first. A big brand could pay more money for a similar job.
