    What you're describing here (hiring C players to manage D players), is unfortunately so common. I can relate and empathize.

    As for the Corp vs Startup. I've seen both for quite a bit. I really believe it's a matter of personal preferences. I've seen designers in Startups who craved structure and stability and were triggered by the chaos of the first days. Others thrive in it.

    I personally prefer the chaos of startup environment vs the overly rigid structure of large corporation. With that said the paycheck is often better in larger companies. Statistically speaking, having early employee stock options rarely pays out better than the fixed salary (especially if invested wisely).
