Your transition from a Startup to a Big Corp or ViceVersa!

I'm in the process of going from a startup to a big name company for SaaS sales. I wanna hear your feedback on the transition and your experience. What did you like bout each, how they differ, which environment you liked more, etc.

Went from huge corp to startup. I genuinely feel like startups care more about you and your success. You aren't just a number to them.Β

I think the jump is going to take you into a different realm - probably in a good way.

Startups are chaotic and you probably wear many hats but big name is going to be surely more organized and numbers oriented!

I personally am a startup guy. I like to dabble into different aspects of sales and make it work.

I've done both.
Startup: fun personable environment, pivots fast, things change all the time and you are wearing a lot of hats (pro OR con). Lots of flexibility to just GSD. Access to founders.

Big: better benefits and structure. Lots of process. Sometimes great training, tools etc. Sometimes overkill. More established path to revenue: you can tweak, but the recipe for success is already there. Slower pace of change.
Lots more politics
