Given that Stripe most probably won't go public anytime soon, is it worth joining as new grad?

    @John you posted shitty comments, deleted them and edited original comment? What a shitty double standard fellow you are. You are just trolling on every post without any meaningful comments. You should be flagged for this.

    I know someone who joined a company and was held on by the golden handcuffs. They eventually did ipo and the dude made a ton lol! From what I have seen stripe is an amazing company. You could probably grow a great career there tbh! Evaluate your other offers first though!

      Going to a startup with golden handcuffs is basically a huge risk for your career, make or break even if it becomes obsolete slowly over time (see quora). Don’t bank on striking it big with your paper money, lots of startups never ipo

      Very true... My friend did get lucky 100% but i believe stripe has an amazing reputation and could be a great place to start a career. I’m sure if you can land stripe you can land any job you want? Thoughts?

      Gonna disagree with you on the job landing part. While stripe is in a great position at the moment, its name does not hold the same weight as companies like fb/goog/citadel. This would be even less true if stripe were to cool down over the next few years.

      Everyone thought Yahoo was THE place to work 20 years ago :)

      Makes sense when you put it in that perspective. I bet at the bigger companies you have a better chance at climbing the company ladder as well.

      Thanks for your response, it definitely changed my mind as I look for new grad jobs :)

      @ImSure, Did you use “fairy” as a disparagement or did you think of Tinkerbell when you typed it?

      A valid question and one I’d be willing to entertain with a response. 🧚‍♀️ 🔔 had crossed my mind.

      It's a homophobic term. Fuck off, Verizon.

    Why would you want to join a richly valued startup thats not going to ipo? Do you like having golden handcuffs and paper money?
