What do you tell a 26 year old?

A friend's son came for help. He's 26 years old. He has two offers - one from a 'start-up' and the other one from a 'large, well reputed organisation'.
Which one should he join, he asked me. He was well aware of the pros and cons of both the options, so I could not give him much advice
Could I say - follow your heart?
I remembered a question a young girl had asked during a book reading of 'The Kabab Maker and the Consultant'. The story - Oh to Sing the Songs I Like had triggered the query: "How could a person work in the same office for twenty years if he/she hated it so much?"
What do you tell a 26 year old who's starting out in the world?
