As a current intern in a startup, I have been enjoying my internship period so far. This is because startups are still in a developing stage where fresh graduates can be tasked with problems and issues to be solved. And during that problem solving period, fresh graduates would get to learn more knowledge which I think what most fresh graduates would like to look for.
However, no matter if its a startup or a well known company, having a good employer or boss that you would want to work with could eventually make the working experience much better which I am fortunately enough to have.
Personally, as a fresh graduate with some experience working at startups, there are definitely some upsides to working at startups. I believe startups are very youth-friendly and often have a more informal style in comparison to other conglomerates.
Working in a startup enables me to learn things quickly. In a startup, a fresh graduate will be assigned to multiple tasks and the learning curve can bid your blood to run very fast (if you find what they do interesting).
In comparison with conventional management in most of the companies, the problem is, it is very rigid. The company structure is so rigid where employees only work in their own silo. Learning is slow, work is boring & repetitive.
So yes, if your sister is able to find a field that interests her in a startup and she likes learning, go ahead!
Startups are good opportunity and have become increasingly popular. Most of the technology we are getting to operate is a result of start ups innovation. Start ups offers a lot more freedom compared to large companies. This type of work also lets you have access to easily open about your ideas and is seen as an immense scope for growth.
