Common concerns about joining startups
Sustainability of startups
The most common concern talent have when considering to work at a startup is the overall sustainability of the business. What are the risks of the startup folding?
Remuneration and Compensation
The truth is, it is more likely for startups to deal with cash flow problems. This may affect their ability to offer large remuneration compensation packages. However, some startups may offer equity in place of traditional salary packages. This has a lot of potential growth value, unlike traditional fixed remuneration packages.
Career Progression and Flexibility
It is a common misconception that it is difficult to switch from startups to a MNC. In fact, the skills executives develop during their time in a startup will offer them greater career mobility and better career progression in the future. The quick growth and agility of a startup is a excellent learning curve for professionals who are looking to make a difference and seeking more than just climbing the corporate ladder. Being with a smaller company offers more learning opporturnities with management and allows you to work closely with brains of the business.
Lack of structure
Talent who are coming from a more rigid/highly structured MNC culture may find the flexibility in startups alarming and disorganised. While it forces individuals to adapt and be flexible with problem solving, the lack of structure also brings about many benefits.
Traits of a startup team member
There are many vital qualities that are important in a startup team. These are some traits of an ideal startup employee:
Team Player and Collaborator
Passion for the work
Shares the Vision
Grit and patience
Desire to Learn
