Joining a fast growing startup is often the most beneficial route
YC President Sam Altman: “If you join a company, my general advice is to join a company on a breakout trajectory.”
Wealthfront CEO Andy Rachleff: “All our advice on Silicon Valley careers is based on a simple idea: that your choice of company trumps everything else. It’s more important than your job title, your pay or your responsibilities.”
A16Z founder Marc Andreessen: “Apply this rule when selecting which company to go to. Go to the company where all the action is happening.”
Gmail creator Paul Bucheit: “Most startups are s**t. There’s a few of them that are really exceptional, and if you land at an exceptional one, you can do really well. If you randomly pick something, you’ll probably have a bad time.”
Sheryl Sandberg and Eric Schmidt: “If you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship, don’t ask what seat. Just get on.”
