What do you think of leaving a federal government job for a start up company? The Fed Gov offers better benefits and stability but the Start Up company offers better compensation, bonus and opportunity for professional growth. I’ll appreciate any advice.

Idk many tech startups have unlimited PTO(if used correctly) and fully paid for medical/dental/vision are amazingly good benefits compared to gvt jobs..

Keep in mind that startups only last 2-5 years.

Plenty of time to learn, grow, then move on!

The startup company is security-focused ranking platform to analyze and monitor blockchain protocols and DeFi projects. Have between 200-500 employees and was founded in 2018.

web3 companies really hurting these days though

Not sure where in the federal government you might be but it seems to be a pretty drastic pivot - hard to see how you might boomerang back from DeFi to federal GS employment. That said, if you're really interested in short term TC and growth rather than stability then it seems like a clear yes!

Left my first job after just shy of two years because I was bored. Have been at my current job for about half a year and it’s a great resume builder but an absolute horror story (long hours, unreasonable clients, tons of weekend work that’s not worth the pay). If I left in a few months, at the 10 month mark, would that significantly hurt my chances of getting a strong exit opportunity? I can’t imagine staying here for the full year but I don’t want to blow my chances at leaving for a cool job
