Startups or Big Companies: Which Is Better for Your Career?

I had a friend from NIT Jamshedpur. He was working in a reputed analytics firm in Gurugram. He was offered a fixed growth plan for next 5 years.

No doubt, he had a competitive pay of a corporate and perks of a startup. But he left the company in 15 months! Everyone wondered why?

Later on, I found that the company was not bad but he could not fit into that environment!

When is the best time to switch jobs?

I recently met Ankur, a senior vice-president in a reputed MNC at Gurugram. After graduating from prestigious IIT Kharagpur in 2002, he joined XYZ, an analytics firm started by some IITians. After 6 years, XYZ was acquired by ABC. It has been 16 years and he is still working in his first company.

I also know Nikhil who graduated from a normal college, but he kept switching jobs after each 3-4 years. Today he has more than 15 years of experience. In his 6th job, he has reached till VP-level.
