Working for a large or a small company has it’s differences, the owners of small businesses have an emotional attachment to what they built and operate, while in a multinational there is no emotional attachment, everything is accordance with numbers – employees are numbers, employees are measured by how valuable each one is to the business.
People that works for a multinational do it for money nothing else, their roles are well defined and they work accordingly to boundary of their roles, they are often well educated, in a small business you would have to do a bit of everything outside of your roles boundary, it makes it easier to find something you like and stick with.
People working for a multinational may not be more happier doing what they doing, they often have no emotional attachment, it is all about status, making money living a certain life style.
So when you start out in your working career, you might be better off starting at a smaller firm, Me, I been working for national, multi national, start ups and I have to say that the most satisfaction that I got was with startup.
