Pros and Cons

The advantages and disadvantages of working in a large or small company

By GECC Editorial Staff

In a small company you are likely to:

  • Work closely with founding members
  • Be teamed with senior engineers & get to leverage off their experience
  • Be exposed to product development at close range
  • Participate in the full life cycle of a product/service
  • Impact the product/service directly
  • Relax in a laid-back environment with relatively little bureaucracy, while being energized by a dynamic process

In a large company you are likely to:

  • Have a less rigorous time commitment than you would experience in a small company
  • Have more opportunities to move around in the organization
  • Be exposed to different development methodology
  • Have access to a broad base of resources
  • Experience more diversity and formal resolution mechanisms
