When I step back and think about it, the many advantages of working for a large company have allowed me to grow professionally, increase pay, and develop a strong network.
You have a much better chance of finding meaningful work that you’re good at through real-life opportunities. Working for a large organization allows you to try many different things.
A few of the skills I have developed over the past 12 years include: - Public Speaking - Relationship Building - Negotiation - Leading a Team
However, when you have an opportunity to work in an organization with more experienced professionals, you may find yourself in a better position to learn these skills from others.
If you invest a few thousand dollars into a 401(k) for a few years early in your career, you’ll set yourself up with a strong foundation.
Having this strong foundation may allow you to take additional professional risks while your retirement savings are compounding.
Changing jobs within an organization allows you to maintain existing relationships and retain the knowledge of your company’s culture.
