Importance of Employer [#permalink]

For Engineers applying to B-school, does the employer make a difference? For instance, is a software engineer from a small unknown firm treated the same an Aerospace Engg at Boeing or an Electrical Engg at Intel etc. I know that in the end, it depends on the person and his/her experience, but I am assuming that all these factors are relatively similar.

i am a rookie in management....but i think experience is more important ..the things that you learn from the years...
it doesn't matter how big the team is....it is the way you handle yourself dealing with people/your work....
saying this...i have couple of basic questions about the professionals with electrical engineering back ground.....i did my masters in electrical engineering...but i am working in IT...
its been more than a year that I have been working in IT...now i want to get started on my mission for an MBA (which I am planning to start in few years from now)....but in the meanwhile I want to work on preparing for a MBA degree...
i tried to research and see what people with electrical engineering background and MBA end up with...but i could not find lot of information...
i would really appreciate if an experienced person can guide me on what typical MBA grads with elec. engg background do...and what will be a good homework for a future MBA degree...
I realize that the experience is more improtant, but my question was more in the lines of : with similar exp and other factors, will a big name employer have a positive/negative impact on an app?
If experiences are the same exact, then a big name has a net positive effect, but not by that much. Bascially, if you're at a less prestigious firm / smaller firm then in a lot of cases you'll have a broader set of experiences which often outweighs brand name.
The bottom line, is that it isn't something you should worry about too much. _________________
