Great advice indeed. I do think that the upper level knowledge that is gained in grad school is useful (as well as the contacts and networking opportunities, and scheduling and time management skills that are exercised). But I learned more applicable knowledge in just 2 years of employment at a start-up company than I ever did through out school. Thinking like a leader (or owner/employer) is also valuable advice - this helps to improve upon business judgement and helps to build trust among your employers. Even if you don't see yourself with the company for a long time, I think that always approaching a job with a career-mindedness will enable you to learn more and benefit, even in the short-term.
