This Comic Perfectly Captures Corporate Life Versus Startup Life


Saw this comic floating around on LinkedIn and thought it captured the corporate life versus the startup life perfectly.

Having worked in the corporate world for almost 5 years now, I can honestly say that while I love my role, team, and projects, there are days where I feel like a hamster.

On the flip side, working on Firmology before work, after work, and on the weekends feels exactly like pushing a giant boulder up a mountain. I would add that the boulder runs over you pretty much everyday!

Anyone else out there relate?
