One of the biggest things that I enjoyed about working at startups is the fact that I get to work closely with other folks on my team that I may not get the chance otherwise to work with elsewhere. You can see what’s going on in marketing, sales, customer support, engineering, etc just by walking to the table across the room. Later on when you part ways (for better or for worse) you suddenly know a few people that have that industry specific knowledge. When other people in your network are looking for such resources you can be the guy who makes those introductions. Goodwill all around plus a nice boost to your social capital.
