Why You Should Reject that Start-Up JobI'm currently a cofounder at a vc-backed startup. OP's post is spot on. Don't do a startup unless you are a founder, and even then, it's not as glamorous as you'd might think. Even as a founder, I still feel like I lack freedom. When you get vc-funded you typically lose a great deal control over... 2 years 3 months

This company also has a very strong corp dev dept, so perhaps I can try networking my way into that? Not sure if that's possible for the summer tough. 5 years 3 months

Interviewing w/ several groups of the same bank (...Does anyone know whether each group sends rejection emails separately? I just received 2 identical rejection emails, but they didn't specify the group name. Does that mean the 3rd one is still pending? 5 years 4 months
