    I've worked in corporate for 8 years got fed up then jumped into a startup was there for only 2 years and now back into another corporation.

    I liked the corporate setup at the beginning, I liked the structure of it. I was privy to meetings where I saw and heard executives cutting departments for the shareholders it pissed me off and saddened me. How could corporations be so cold and have no humanity whatsoever.

    So I left and went to a startup. It seemed exciting and fun free food, beer and games. Then once again privy to CEO's meetings and all they cared about was money - shut down products departments just to make the company look more profitable.

    You then realize all these companies are exactly the same! They might preach were a family/team (they are not), you might think they need you and can't function without you ( they do not). They will fire you for whatever reason or whenever they need to be seen as profitable, (most companies in most states do not need a reason to fire people).

    There is no greener grass on that other side of the hill. It might seem to be greener at the beginning but eventually you'll see that they sprayed it green and it was really dead or dying.

    So you have to do whatever is good for yourself.
