Re: Early contracting experiences? Learning the haard way! (1 of 2...)
- I deal only with experienced companies - and generally avoid startups
I understand why you make this comment. However, personally, I'm not willing to abandon startups. Because you're involved with the initial organization, startups give lots of opportunity for taking responsibility and for trying new things. At a startup, you're almost guaranteed not to be bored.
The downside is that many startups are great on promises and enthusiasm, but bad on following through and on paying bills. That's especially true at companies so small that they have no one handling finance.Often, such companies don't mean to be slow paying bills - it's just that the details of finance aren't important to their executives.
So, before working with a startup, you should learn what you can about its finances and operations. That goes for both contractors and full-time positions.
