Enjoy your new life as a corporate drone!
Note to the salty drones in the comments below: I started a business that was passively profitable for years and now pretty much just work on what interests me
I think startups are great for junior employees because you learn so much so quickly. Eventually if you want to be successful in startups you need to start your own startup. The payout on 25% ownership at $10M or $20M is not bad and lots more companies can buy that sized company than a billion dollar one.
There absolutely is. I'm not sure why so many here seem to think that the only options are: BA startup, FAANG, Fortune 500 megacorp.
Comp and work/life balance smoothes over a lot of negatives inherent in corporate life.
