What’s the differences between working for a startup and a big company?
Flexibility! Especially in Germany, bigger companies are very know for their “bureaucracy” where it takes forever to make simple changes happen. This is normally not the case with startups, the teams are smaller, more fluid, and can take action right away. It’s very much a mentality of “let’s try it and see if it works, if it doesn’t let’s learn something from it.” And that’s very refreshing, you’ll learn a lot working at a startup.
