A batch of the best highlights from what Swapnil's read, .

Many developers work for startups taking low salaries and working ridiculous hours hoping to get rich on the stock options if the company goes public or gets acquired, but I consider that a pretty risky bet. I wouldn’t recommend choosing to work for a startup just because you might hit the lottery someday. Taking that approach, you’re likely to burn out fast and have nothing to show for it. A better reason to work for a small company or startup is because you like that kind of fast-paced, exciting environment and you want to be part of building something and watching it grow.

The moment you leave the teacup, that raging storm will be gone, and a gentle breeze will greet you in its place.
