Why Many IIT / IIM / MBAs Prefer to go for an Start-Up rather Work for Others ?
1. You’ll have more responsibility
Working at a start-up probably means you’re part of a small team, most likely in the single digits. Because of the nature of having such a small team, there is probably nobody else in the company who has the same skillset as you, approaches problems in the same way you do, or even thinks the same way you do.
2. You’ll be given more opportunities
I probably don’t need to tell you that most start-up jobs won’t pay as well as some of the bigger corporate and business jobs. You (or your degree) may be worth more than a start-up is able to pay. But working at a start-up offers a different type of reward: an incentive-based system that isn’t based on dollars, but rather in skills attained and opportunities seized. The experience will outweigh the pay cut
3. You’ll be able to do a lot of different things
One of the biggest complaints I hear from peers who have entered into a more-structured, corporate position is that they are generally stuck with their main task and don’t get to branch out into other areas. Whether it’s writing, designing, filling out spreadsheets, or any other task, it’s usually a one-person-fits-one-task kind of position. If that sounds like your start-up job, then, I hate to tell you, but you’re doing something wrong. Working at a start-up will allow you to try on a lot of different hats, even that weird one that you didn’t think you would ever like, but find out that you did.
4. You will learn from true innovators
People who start their own business have a different mental and professional makeup than those who have never gone off to create something of their own. Entrepreneurs are defined by seeing a problem and thinking of an innovative and original way of addressing it. Because of this innovative nature, entrepreneurs are some of the best people to learn from. They approach problems differently, are constantly finding solutions, and are driven to make the most out of their time and work.. Innovation is more than creativity. It’s action and reaction, solving problems in a new, enlightening way. Every successful start-up has true innovators, and if you find the right ones, you’ll learn plenty.
5. Your work will be recognized (as will your failures)
If I’ve learned anything from watching TV shows and movies, it’s that if you work
6. You’ll work in an awesome atmosphere
Let me count the ways:
- I wear jeans to work. In the summer, I wear shorts and sandals.
- If there isn’t at least one really good joke in an hour, it’s probably a slow day.
- Everyone else who works at a start-up has the same drive and excitement for creation as you do.
7. You’ll learn to be frugal
Working at a start-up probably means that money is tight. Whether you’ve been showered with investor love or the founder has a really wealthy uncle, the company will still be thinking of ways to do more with less. Instead, the business development intern will learn how to design and code the blog, the writer will sometimes do the dishes, and at the start you’ll find a way to fit nine people around an eight person table (hint: extra chair). This frugality and monetary responsibility will undoubtedly bleed into your own life as well, and you’ll end up finding new ways to find fulfilment
other than burning the money you earn. Instead, you’ll probably discover a joy in creating and doing, rather than consuming. You’ll find happiness in being part of a team that is trying to make other people’s lives easier, more fun, and more manageable. Your entire life will take on a meaning of creation, and you’ll be more energized, both physically and mentally, to take on new hobbies and start your own personal projects. In the start-up world, it’s all about creating more and consuming less (this does not apply to Thai food or burritos).
8. You’ll be instilled with the value of hard work, ownership, and self-sustainability
Maybe more important than any other benefit of working at a start-up is the realization that hard work, creative thinking, and tenacity are worth a whole lot. Once you’ve created something of your own, something tangible and whole, something you can touch, feel, or use, you really begin to appreciate personal ownership. For those who do not actively create, or are continuously creating for someone else’s benefit, it’s difficult to understand the great importance of personal ownership and the liberty needed to pursue that ownership. Working at a start-up and spreading the news of your team’s product, a product that you helped bring into existence, instils the value of that ownership and gives you pride in your work. It is this pride, in your team’s hard-work and ability, that teaches you the importance of protecting those who do create innovative solutions and take risks.
Working at a start-up also means that you and your small team are the only people responsible for your success. For some, that may trigger a response to go crawl into a corner and hope someone comes and spoon-feeds them their paycheck. For others, it’s the greatest motivation there is. To be cut off from relying on others to provide for you will undoubtedly surface skills and a determination that you didn’t know you had. At a start-up, that natural wish to be self-sustainable is magnified and multiplied, triggering the do-or-die attitude that is often the difference between success and failure. No matter where you go after your stint at a start-up, and especially if it is to go off and create a company on your own, that need to be self-sustainable, and the skills you picked up to make that possible, will power everything that you do.
