High-tech start-ups have begun to experience a pullback in venture capital lending, but IT workers still seem to consider these shops a good bet for jobs. Dice polled users last week, asking if they would consider working for a start-up and an overwhelming majority of the 504 respondents were favorable to the idea.

  • 77 percent said they would work for a start-up that had a good market niche, a solid business strategy and reasonable funding.
  • 11 percent said "no" to the idea of working for a start-up because too many don't survive the first year.
  • 9 percent said they would if the company focused on compelling technology.
