Small company or large company?

While some people prefer to work with large companies, others prefer to work for small companies. I recognize some benefits of working for a small company. For example, you have more personal interactions with other employees including the top management, which goes a long way to build your royalty and dedication to the company. In addition, as the number of employees is limited, you do not get lost in the crowd and you do not feel you are just a number, which may increase your motivation. However, when comparing the pros and cons of both big and small corporations, my contention is that I should be employed by a large company.

For starters, big corporations generally offer higher salaries and better fringe benefits such as health insurances, paid holidays, and pension programs. Furthermore, big companies usually have better health and social facilities such as hospitals, schools, and summer vacation houses. For instance, Tata Steel is one of the largest steel companies in the world, and its main manufacturing plant is situated in a city called Jamshedpour, where virtually everything, housing, roads, hospitals, schools, you name it, is owned and administered by Tata Steel.

Second of all, big companies have extensive training programs to hone your skills and improve your professional expertise. To be specific, my company annually sends approximately twenty employees to top MBA programs around the glove. Moreover, last year three of our employees were accepted to the Harvard Business School, which is one the most prestigious MBA programs in the world.

Last but not least, many big companies have plants and offices around the world, so you may have chances working in foreign countries, which may broaden your perspectives. For example, my brother had an opportunity to work in the Chicago office for five years, and not only he but also his family totally enjoyed this eye-opening experience. In fact, he enjoyed the life in Chicago so much that he is thinking about moving to Chicago after the retirement.

While some people prefer to work with large companies, others prefer to work for small corporations. In conclusion, my belief is that big companies offer more than small corporations do. However, if you are young ambitious entrepreneurs and want to follow the path of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs or Patrick Page, this debate is of no use. Start your own businesses to realize your American dreams. (400 words/Score 6)
