MumbaiMag.com is a startup. We have a friendly, open culture and we love inviting more minds and hearts to join us in discovering the unheard stories and unseen people that keep the city going. But before you apply for a job at a startup, here is what you must know. We found this useful little nugget on the HeadStart Higher website on what are the risks and rewards of joining a start up. We would like to share the same with you.

Risks and Rewards of joining a startup
Joining a startup is nothing like joining another job. It demands long working hours, responsibility, ownership and a lot of passion. In many cases, the startup may not pay you even half as much as your current salary and would perhaps demand double the amount of work.

What is on offer is your shot at changing the world by building a business that provides innovative products and services or does it more efficiently than most others in the world. The risk that you take on your salary is compensated either with some equity in the organization or simply the fast growth and learning if the company does well.

Why you shouldn’t join a startup
You should clearly not join a startup if any of the following is true:

  • You have a high commitment on the income you take home. For example, if you are servicing a huge home-loan.
  • You have a family that demands loads of attention. For example, if you are expecting arrival of your first child in next few months.
  • You are unable to get through other jobs and are looking at this as an option for time being. Joining a startup is a long-term commitment.
  • You care a lot about the brand name of the company you join. It is quite likely that no one in your circle has heard about the startup you work for, or will hear about it in near future.

Why you may join a startup
There are some people who have natural inclination towards startups:

  • You are known for taking initiatives among your friends. You happen to be the one person who organizes all get-togethers and you love it.
  • You love the freedom at your workplace and would find it cool to come to office at 2 pm or whenever you like to and work late-hours. Startups usually don’t have a in-time out-time policy.
  • You think you work best when you are left unsupervised. There are usually not enough people in a startup to monitor you.
  • You are a programmer but love to try your hand at dabble online marketing, sales and making coffee, or any other way around.
