Director, IT Architecture in Software, 5,001 - 10,000 employees
There is always a lot of excitement in a startup operation.  Creativity is encouraged usually.
VP( Network Engineering and Delivery) in Telecommunication, 10,001+ employees
High mortality rate of start up always scares me

I like working on high impact projects, and the scale enterprise achieves is much better for this, 50-250 million dollar projects with hundreds of thousands to millions of impacted people
I also like having a dedicated role with responsibilities. From my observations, startups often have a "we all help out" mindset required when the company isn't big enough for structure, and unless the leaders/founders put a bottle on the chaos, it can be a toxic environment very quickly
Editor-in-Chief in Media, 201 - 500 employees
I have a preference for established companies due to factors such as job security, competitive compensation, and the potential for growth, especially when there is a competent management team. The association with a well-known brand also contributes to building a strong global identity. 

Although startups can be appealing with their passion-driven approach, I still lean towards established firms for the aforementioned reasons.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.

My personal experience. 

I usually get the feedback and go back with data driven analysis providing details to cross leaders to understand the context and make decision basis data and and not gut feeling.
