Currently interviewing with a couple startups, one late stage and one emerging. Comp is roughly the same give or take 5%. Early stage is leadership role for a new division, late stage is senior associate. What are some things to consider with evaluating the offers and organizations themselves?

Also where are you coming from & is it worth it to take the risk?

Big D, both of them have a solid pipeline (emerging software consulting startup, contracts in hand through 2023) or PE funding (late stage, secured through 2024 with expectation of 400% revenue growth)

Is this consultant role you’re currently in entry level? Personally I would probably take the late stage startup role as an emerging company can go to shit quickly but there are some other elements I would evaluate: - what product/service does the early stage company have - what kind of funding does the early stage company have? How’s the CEO? - who would you report to? How do you think you’d get along with that person? The leadership role for a new division could be a lot of fun (a lot of work) but things could go awry quickly too. I would just prepare for a potential pivot if things go kaboom.
