Startups are fun to work for, but almost by definition unstable work environments. The majority of them don't survive their first year, and after 5 years maybe 5% of them still exist (the rest having gone bankrupt or being bought out by larger competitors).
If you don't have a family to support and can take the risk of potentially loosing your job suddenly (often there's little warning, weeks at best) they can be a good place to pick up some knowledge of advanced technologies in a nice setting.
If you want longterm security though, stick with the big names in the business, companies that have been around 5-10 years at least.
