Startup over Corporate Internship…A Tough Choice

What made you do an internship in a start-up over a large corporate?
“The primary reason I chose to work at a startup was its culture. For my first step into my professional career development, I felt that having more responsibility often happened more in these startups where the hierarchal structure was flatter than corporates.
Despite being an intern, my work and feedback get treated with a lot of importance. The difference in seniority is there, but it’s also coupled with the encouragement to challenge it. It’s a unique experience, and one that I don’t know if I would have gotten in a corporate.”
