How would you compare a telecommuting (overseas) job at a startup (when everything at the startup be it the work, the environment, the people, etc looks exciting enough) with another job at the company office. (Just to clarify, both are different jobs at different companies, I mean for the company providing telecommuting job there is unfortunately no option of working at their office primarily because of lack of initial funding as it's a startup and also because it's overseas.)
Perhaps someone who has himself had a telecommuting job will be able to help best. Can telecommuting job provide opportunity of learning and growth any close to the more general case of working at the office. Does it work out well enough?
Though the job is development work (which looks like it could work out) but if I want to learn entrepreneurship skills, should I prefer a job where I'd be working at the office itself, given a choice is there.
If the question is still not specific enough, what should one take into consideration before deciding between telecommuting job vs the other case.
