STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE
According to recent research published in 2015 only 14% of U.S. graduates want to work in big firms and 44% want to work at a start-up.  Individuals who want to join a startup often express the desire to have on the job learning, autonomy and an informal atmosphere, but there is so more you need to know.

  2. The culture is constantly evolving.
  3. Most startups have a lack of structure and you may not even have a boss.
  4. There are no slow days. The mindset is 24/7.
  5. Resources are limited. They have to stretch across the entire organization and you may be expected to do a lot with little.
  6. Financial uncertainty. The company may make it big, and it may not.

  2. Autonomy in your work.
