I've not been around in awhile, but I'lll throw my 2 cents in on the "What constitutes a small company/business."

The first page with statistics that were actually on point had stats from the mid-90's, but I really doubt that these stats have changed all that much in the last 10-12 years.

Of the 5,369,068 employer firms in 1995, 78.8 percent had fewer than 10 employees, and 99.7 percent had fewer than 500 employees.

Terp06 - your "small company" of ~2000 employees is actually in the top 0.3% of employers in terms of size.

Another statistic I would like to see but could not find is what % of the population does each range of company size employ? Such as, "Companies with > 500 employees make up 0.3% of the number of companies, but these companies employ 7% of the US work force." I made up those numbers, but it would be interesting to see.

Interesting insight - thanks.
