In a start up you usually get more exposure to the work that other teams around you do, and to higher management and often the CEO. In a large company, marketing may never meet the software engineers, and a sales associate will likely not travel to sales meetings with the CEO. In a start up, you will probably share a small office with all the company departments, getting visibility to the ins and outs of how the organization works as a whole. Your cubicle may be right outside theCEO’s office and your CEO may also be in charge of sales.
