- Startups have certain positive traits while Big MNC’s call for office politics, bossy environment, no transparency and less hikes, long wait for promotions etc.
- Startups are mostly riskier and have greater chances of failing due to lack of vision, culture, bad leadership, no proper funding or a bad team, where as MNC’s are prearranged with quite the opposite.
