I think they both have positives and negatives. In a small business, they can offer more commission to attract the best talent, however if you stay too long, you could waste valuable years of your career. If the small business has a good culture, this can also be important as the environment I find is very important. I want to be somewhere with good people and a good culture, and this isn't something I always see in a large business with more people. Large corporations will also provide you with more structure and can offer more benefits. Essentially in my experience, small businesses like startups give you cash, large corporations provide benefits and focus more on your role and more definitive advancement opportunities. Small businesses though also can give you more room to grow/advancement opportunities to grow with the business. Really depends on your values/preferences/working style.

Yes thank you for your response

Small company! 100%. From my experience they treat their employees So much better. You can get raises and bonuses a lot easier because investors pocket aren’t controlling the salaries. Also, I love sales in new companies because it’s so exciting! When it’s a really cool product and nobody knows about it I love being one of the first to penetrate the market

I prefer a small company - easier to stand out, negotiate raises, have say in policy/procedures, etc

Big company. I’ve worked for over six start ups and it has been challenging. Usually in small companies marketing is not doing a good job so you are both doing leg generation closing and creating processes on best practices. Things change very quickly in a start up environment and your commission structure can change drastically. No benefits. Equity is like Russian roulette. Instead, a big company, in my case Amazon, I make way more than I did before with less stress and I have opportunities to grow not only within my role but should I decide to explore product management, marketing, project management, etc. they highly encourage to grow within and pursue curiosity. I have never seen anything else like this. They basically ensure that everyone becomes a millionaire by there for your class through RSU. compensation and sign on bonuses. At the end, sales is draining and making the experience very lucrative and rewarding at the end is worth it to me

Yes I can definitely see benefits from big corporations as well. And I agree with you on the marketing part!

Small company! I currently am at a small company and I love my tight knit team AND I’ve got a lot of growth opportunity with my company as well. I also get to add so much creativity in my role as well.

That sounds perfect!

It would depend. Both have pros and cons. Right now, my goal is to achieve career growth. So I'm okay with any type of company as long as it can help me achieve my goal.

Small company that’s scaling while you’re apart of it is the best. Not good to be on a small company w/ no growth opp. IMO, not good to be on big corporation doing sales because less room for growth. Do your research and find a company that’s about to explode and get there. Sounds obvious but is hard in practice

Well said!

small company has more visibility and more opportunities to make an impact but also less structured.

In my experience, the smaller the company, the greater chance for micromanaging. Which I guess is somewhat understandable. It’s not like they have excess funds to overcome big mistakes or errors. Though the camaraderie is definitely a lot more present

I worked at both. Literally a company less that 20 and I was the only sales person, and now Google. As mentioned above, both have pro’s and con’s and are prone to very different stresses and bullshit. If you wanna discuss you can message me and I’ll go into the weeds with you

Put house on the market at what realtor thinks is a fair value.

Would you let the property hang out longer or would you move quickly to drop the price down? We’re actually not in a rush to sell but it’s frustrating hearing everyone else say their house sold in like a day
