Tom Blomfield: When to join a startup

Something has changed in the last few years which has made an increasing number of people want to join startups. It seemed to start around the time the Social Network movie came out – perhaps it’s just a coincidence, but part of me imagines a group of MBAs sitting around watching Justin Timberlake play Sean Parker, thinking thatactually a billion dollars would be pretty cool.

When choosing a startup to work at, people often overlook one of the most important factors, which is the size and stage of the company. I’d argue this is sometimes even more important than the industry or the idea itself.
