    The corporate ladder is not the only path to success, and in this age of innovation startups are paving new creative routes. Besides the perks of ditching corporate attire and pesky red bureaucratic tape, how is startup life different than a career at a big company? They may not always bring the big bucks, but many startups offer interesting perks, stock options, and diverse opportunities for growth. Smaller teams mean greater visibility and the chance to dip your hands into a variety of areas — they can also mean longer hours, more pressure, and a fast-paced work environment.
