Working At Small Vs. Large Company

many people say that working in small companies is more beneficial as you are likely to get more responsibilities and a steep learning curve. you also have a better identity compared to the anonymity of working at a large company.

But I think it depends on what your ultimate aims are when you decide to work for a large or a small company. A small company may offer you limited scope of growth. Also in a small team the chances of getting involved in Group Dynamics and being a victim of tactics like isolation et al is more strong.

In a large company you are likely to gain acceptance from one group or the other and in the process have a better work life.

Also if you want to become an entrepreneur you could consider working for both a small and a large company to learn the tricks of the trade and best practices of both to gain when you set up your own company. The implementation of the systems and processes are smooth if you have the experience of being a part of the same for a couple of years.

So these are some of the pros and cons of working in small and big comapanies. Go for it, make your own decision.
