Startups in Atlanta also excel at talking a big game. They also excel in going belly-up quickly when their funding runs out (probably like startups everywhere). In fact, I'd really, REALLY think hard about quitting a job and moving to a new city for a startup. No matter what they told you, regardless of who they promised their backers or clients are, mark my words: They could be gone in 6 months. Or sooner. I've seen it happen more times than I can count.

Also, even if they don't go completely belly-up, they could cut jobs if they hit a snag. An the last one in is usually the first one out. Beware of startups!!!! This isn't Silicon Valley where you can just move on to the next one if it doesn't work out.

I actually experienced this where there were days I coupdn't work because we had lost clients
the pay was also really crappy just to make things worse.
