Working for a startup or MNC has its own advantages as well disadvantages. As an engineer, would you opt for a job at a Startup or MNC?
If a company would take all of us & funds our projects with any profits deals, I'd go but with the economic condition don't anyone would be much adventurous with his money, so now the best choice is my own 😁
My Good, I started my career with a MNC; however that MNC opened a new center in the CITY where I joined (establishing a new center was just as good as setting a start-up) 😁. So for me it was a STARTUP - MNC
Whats your take on this biggi? Agreed?
A startup will offer you more responsibilities and you'll avoid unnecessary meeting and status reports et al. It's a great learning experience and nothing else would beat it when it comes to building technical skillset.
An MNC job, on the other hand can offer everything you wish for - a posh office, great money, great work. However, most of the times most of the techies end up doing all the donkey-work (I mean it) for the love of fat salaries.
One has to evaluate the job he/she is seeking by asking lot of questions to the potential employer. However, I don't see anyone interested in knowing more about the job than the salary.

Some of my friends brother are working in MNC, From my friends what information I got is,MNC employees getting heavy workloads rarely and They are recognized according to their smart work , not based on the hard works.
I heard that, the company you are working, provides research offer with good resources to employees. Isn't it?shalini_goel14😕 I guess for me it would not matter. I will be treated as a resource(or an employee) with bosses at both the places.
What kind of research they offer -do you know that? 😀ms_csI heard that, the company you are working, provides research offer with good resources to employees. Isn't it?
Just I got such news. I don't know it is true or not. What he told is, while working as programmer or system analyst or some other, the employee will get a chance to be a part of research group.shalini_goel14What kind of research they offer -do you know that? 😀
I tell you what is called as "Research" in such companies - Getting hands on new introduced versions of technologies about which world has not even heard or making company's existing products better by changing its code.ms_csJust I got such news.

This is what i think..😎
In MNCs, things are pritty set and one works in comfortable atmosphere. He gets alomost eveything in hand, leaving less to explore. You might not always get to see bigger picture.
One can work in MNCs anytime but working for startups after certain time is difficuilt.
Theres a big gap between a start up company and an MNC. Can't we choose places in between? So many types with different number of employees and sizes, including government based ones.
Or.. is there a purpose to limit the choices between these two types?
An old discussion, but worth reigniting. Do we have any experiences from people who've chosen to join a startup over MNC?
Would love to hear from our fellow CEans who've joined recently.
