FINANCE AND ACCOUNTING CAREER IN A SMALL BUSINESS OR LARGE BUSINESS? WHICH IS BETTER?

If you work for a small-to-mid business and are contemplating a position in a large enterprise company OR if you work for a large organization and have been thinking about transitioning your accounting and finance career to a much smaller company, you may be asking yourself – which would be better for me?

The general belief is small-to-mid size businesses employ less than 500 employees while enterprise-sized organizations employ 500 or more. To help you determine which environment works best for you, ask yourself the following large business vs. small business questions:

Large Business – Yes or No?

Small Business – Yes or No?

In your accounting or finance career, matching your professional goals and personality with the advantages of a small or large business will help you determine which setting works best for you. If you value certain benefits and perks and the excitement of national and international prospects, a large organization is likely a good fit for you. On the other hand, if you find an intimate office setting with opportunities for greater empowerment and immediate access to executive leadership appealing, you may be better-suited for a small business environment. Inquire what the company has to offer you, weigh the pros and cons and make the decision that best meets your needs.
