I used to work in a boutique before moving to a larger firm. I’d say you get to have more responsibility at boutique’s and supposedly promotions can happen faster. Larger firms have more name recognition on resumes and WAY less small firm problems. Small firm problems include less infrastructure and organization to really support development
