As the job market is now very complicated, most graduated students are suffering from the
choice of their future career in whether a small-scale company or big cooperation. Even though
the job descriptions may look the same in words, there are quite a few differences that you need
to know before choosing which is more suitable for you.

Tasks and responsibilities

In small companies, there are likelihoods that you have to do various tasks which surrounded
your positions. Doing a bit here and there gives you a full overlook and also help
you to gain lots of knowledge and experiences.

The responsibilities, in the end, are bigger as you
are already contributing a great part to the company’s success. If you find yourself wanting to be a
part of everything, then small companies may be a good choice.

In big companies, the tasks you are given are usually specialized. This does not limit your
chance to learn more as you can always deepen your career specialty. Your decision in big
companies is less likely to affect anything if your job is not one of those senior managers.

This might sound as good news to those who do not want to take on too many responsibilities yet
when you just graduated.

 

Benefits and flexibility

There is no doubt that when it comes to salary and bonuses, big companies is the winner. As
they have more resources, employees would enjoy the privilege of healthcare insurance,
transportation fees or fancy teambuilding hangout. However, small companies reward their
employees in different but not less attractive ways. This usually come forward as commissions
structure, profit sharing or share ownership.

In terms of flexibility, small companies offer and also requires a little bit more from their
employees. If you prefer or not hesitate to work out of working hours, then small companies are
the match for you. This enhances also the close relationship between employees and their boss
which creates a more friendly working environment.

Big companies usually have their contracts
written clearly with limits the work flexibility. However, this is what makes the working
environment more professional and well-organized.
