Ever thought of ditching your 9 to 5 corporate gig and making the jump?
A corporate job with cushy benefits may be a good option to start your career with, but will it empower you to hone your creative thinking skills and grasp new ones?
A position at startup, pushes you beyond what you thought was the limit of your competence. You are exposed to all the ins and outs of running a business from taking on administrative responsibilities to fine tuning marketing strategies and creating a product or service demand to operations and logistics.
Still need a little convincing? Well, here are 7 reasons that will make you choose an adrenaline packed start-up life over MNC jobs.
In a big organization, if you’re a manager, you manage; If you’re a business analyst, you formulate reports. So, it’s usually a one-person-fits-one-task kind of role. Working with a startup, on the other hand, makes you wear more than one hat. You manage, write, design, answer the phone and interview prospective employees (and that’s only the beginning!).
In fact, if you are still not able to answer one of the most confounding questions — which role do I fit in? A startup can help you gain skills and insight into multiple profiles. (And, you may just end up deciding what exactly you want in the long run).There is not much pigeonholing at a startup; you do and see a variety of things.
No matter how much over time you do, working for a larger company pretty much means your work is likely to go unnoticed for the majority of the time. This is especially true if you’re in an entry-level position.
On the other hand, working for a startup means your elbow grease doesn’t go unnoticed. You receive instant recognition because everybody, including the company itself, works in an entry-level position. Rest assured, your vigor as an employee is put to work and appreciated day in and day out.
Startups, during early-stages offer ample opportunity to charge your brain cells. If the startup is in the ground-up stages, chances are you’ll have the opportunity to work directly with the creators, engaged in changing the business landscape.
Startup environments are no less than a crash course in business and life. You’ll learn more than what a regular degree course will teach you.
In a startup, you have no choice but to bond with the other members of your team. Economized workplace structure forces you to add a seventh chair to the table supporting only six people.
You may have four people or four dozen, but you’ll be working so closely together on work that you’ll have a natural chemistry in your work-relationships.
That chemistry matters more than you might think.
In large corporations, everything is formalized. Usually, when a decision is to be made, it travels through almost a never- ending hierarchy.
While you might have some solid rules and regulations surrounding you, but your startup will not have a fraction of the bureaucratic nonsense that the large companies implement. You make decisions faster and work more efficiently!
Startups have a lot to offer for your personal advancement, but alongside they also offer the best for personal enjoyment. At 42Works, for example,
42Works equipped me with invaluable hands-on tools and experience, forced me to adopt new skills and responsibilities rapidly. Here at 42Works, you do the REAL work.
Less resources, more demand — money is tight.
Taking up a position in a start up will teach you how to design, code, write, and sometimes even pull an all-nighter. Frugality will undoubtedly be always on your mind, and you’ll end up finding new ways to be monetarily responsible. Down the line, you’ll probably discover a joy in creating and doing, rather than consuming.
Working for a startup, comes with a great excitement and experience that is difficult to gain in large companies. Thrown out of your comfort zone and given liberty to expand your horizons, that’s what Startups do! Regular brainstorms are a worthwhile learning experience.
So if you are still wondering ‘What’s it like working in a startup?
This is the place for you!
Anmol and his content developers were able to provide me with a keyword rich set of blog posts for a project I had. I requested 3 original blog posts for use on a campaign and got them quickly but without sacrificing quality. Every time I think Anmol and his team have exhausted what they can offer me I am always happy to find out that they are a one stop shop and can deliver almost any internet project both quickly and cost effectively.
Working with 42Works has been an experience I am not familiar with. In 42works, I found an attentive, eager to do right for the right reasons, and responsible consultant. 42works made many suggestions that made for a better project overall. I would say I am lucky to have found them, but the truth is I am fortunate. Their communication skills are superb, their dedication unmatched, and their personality made me look forward to working with them.
Excellent service all round. Took time to understand the requirements of the job – suggested good improvements and then set about providing a first class service. Very responsive, quick turnaround and the end result was exactly what we wanted. Would definitely use again and thoroughly recommend to anyone else.Very fast, quick replies, good communication. This job required a lot of small details and they always came through with a solution. I hope to work with 42Works for the long term.
The thing that I liked the most about 42works was their customer interaction chats. They are very comfortable in explaining complex tasks. I have thrown the kitchen sink at them time to time and they have bounced successfully every single time. I am yet to see a crisis which they couldn’t resolve. I fully recommend their services.
The best thing about the Anmol & 42 works team is that they know what I want and need before I even do. I am astonished at how smart, professional and easily available their services are. Had I known them about 5 years ago I’d have saved a lot of wasted efforts on projects. No one is like Anmol. In a world of imitators he is the real deal!
This was a challenging job for a challenging client and 42works came through with flying colors. They were able to resolve a few issues that my other programmers struggled mightily with and I would hire them again in a heart beat.
