That is exactly why I want to become an entrepreneur. I just seem to do badly in a corporate environment.

If you're really successful, you will inevitably be working in a corporate environment, even one of your own creation.

Some people make the transition happen really well, some don't.

It also depends on where you are in the corporate machine. As someone else mentioned on HN once, perhaps Gates couldn't even move up in today's Microsoft, but he makes a pretty good CEO.

You wouldn't be working in a corporate environment generally for very long (often founders move on) and in any case, it isn't like you are a "regular" employee if you are really successful ;)

A lot of things are easy to bear when you know they are temporary - and you don't have the locked in feeling.
