A PHP developer I met this spring at MinneBar sent me an email wondering about a job offer they received and wanted to walk through it with me.
I know they had been thinking about an employer change for months wanting to get into the startup world and always stopped from taking the leap for one reason...
I get that concern, I really do.
It can be very scary to jump from a large, mostly stable employer (if there is such a thing) to work in a young company (the company, not the people), without customers (likely), that has funding (seed capital) for 9 months (yikes) and little to any benefits (whoa).
We went through a long list of things to consider:
- Company culture (what there is of it)
- Experience of the Founders
