Big 4. I say that coz you learn a lot at a Big 4. Start up job will teach you too, but differently. I have worked with so many people over my 18 years career, and I can confidently say that those who worked in Big 4 firms earlier in their career shine in the financial services industry more.

Need more info. What will you be doing at both? What do you want to do longer term? Big 4 is decent on resume but I’ve worked at both and the start up experience was significantly better / more relevant to what I do now / wanted to do at the time. Obviously quality of startups vary widely so that would be a consideration as well
