Considering a change from a smaller tech company to a huge tech organization (think Intel, Oracle, Salesforce, Microsoft, etc.). I’m attracted to the idea of working with more structure and having others around me to learn from and share knowledge with. Right now I’m the only one at my company with my specific expertise and worry my learning and growth is being stalled because of it. Any advice from those working at these tech behemoths on taking that plunge?

I went from small to big and I love it!! I feel like I'm learning more and able to specialize a bit rather than running around trying to be everyone for everyone

I've worked in both small start ups and companies as large as 11K , in my experience the smaller the company the broader your responsibilities and opportunities to get involved. Of course, the larger companies typically have resources and systems in place that make work more efficient but your scope typically becomes much narrower.

Agree with Proquest in that your scope is much narrower at larger corporations. However, moving from a small org, there is so much to learn from a larger corp. And vice versa, so much you can apply by going from a large corp to a small one.

Would love to get some advice on what to do: I left a job after 4 years because of all the department restructures and felt like I didn't have a place anymore. I was hired back to a previous employer and thought I would never leave. Soon after I came back, we merged with another company and the merger was tough. I applied for a promotion and was that I didn't know enough people so I didn't get the role although I was qualified. It felt like a popularity contest that I lost. More in comments..

I fought all week last week for raises for a few employees who are amazing, important and underpaid. One of these people is actually a team lead. They are training others who are coming in and earning $4k more a year than she currently earns and she’s been with our company for about 2 years!!! I find this extremely unfair. The owners of the company believe these employees should speak up if they want a raise. I think it’s our responsibility to pay our employees fairly. Please leave suggestions🙏

I have been working in HR for 1 year now, specifically in recruiting. I am currently an in-house recruiter for a company. There is a large turnover for the position I hire for, the candidates are low quality as the position I hire for does not call for many specific skills or hard-to-obtain skills.
What sort of requirements typically need to be met to move into a different part of HR? I will likely have to find another company as the only positions above me in my company are taken by people who are very unlikely to leave in the coming 4-5 years.
