When one thinks of startups, they often think of the cool, fun places to work filled with opportunities to grow, spread your wings and get your feet wet in a variety of duties.
Maybe in that vision is a beer keg, flex hours, monthly parties and an open-door policy with your boss who wears jeans and sneakers to work every day.
But that might just be the fantasy view of working at a startup. There are also challenges, limitations and other things to consider. Writer Annie Favreau details six common myths about working for that new up-and-coming business:
2. You have to work 80 hours a week, never sleep and stress constantly.
3. Startup life is glamorous.
4. Startup jobs are totally chaotic and unstructured.
5. You have to live in Silicon Valley to work at a startup.
