If you are coming hot into a startup with experience, you might be able to help influence the groundwork, what your role looks like in the future, etc.ย 

Going to a big boi, you're completely disposable.ย 

At a startup, you can make yourself very, very hard to dispose of.

Couldn't agree more with this. I love the startup. Working at a startup has helped my career launch. It was a grind but totally worth it.ย
