Work experience- big or small company? [#permalink] New post 02 Dec 2005, 10:48
Do you think the size of the company has any bearing on how the ADcomm views your application? I just graduated with my BA and have a few offers from varying companies. The most appealing to me is actually a mid-sized food manufacturer(120 million/year) due to the breadth of business exposure I would receive. As my business discipline is Finance, I would be interacting directly with the CFO daily, and the CEO and VPs on a regular basis.

Conversely, I have a few offers from F500 companies but the positions are very limited in scope (Transfer pricing, estimating and pricing, forecast analysis).

What will the adcomm favor?

Thanks in advance-Evan

I realize it has only been a day since I posted, but I would really appreciate any advice any of you could provide. I am somewhat up against a deadline as I need to reject or accept the offer from the mid sized food company by Monday morning. Thanks again.

P.S. Even if you have minimal work experience I would love to get your input. I'm all ears.

Hi Evan, I have asked similar questions earlier and the response I get is that the organization you work in does not matter. The way you perform your work is what is critical.

In your case it seems to me that you would be the best judge on which one of the companies has the right environment for you to shine.

I am no expert, but just another MBA hopeful. The experts on this forum are usually very quick to reply, you will get a reply from them soon.

I would suggest you ask the questions to yourself:
"Where would I be able to contribute significantly? Who, as superiors, would appreciate my contribution at workplace? Where would I be able to see scope of getting higher responsibilities?"

It might so happen that the CFO/CEO/VP may overlook your performance due to their own work pressure; OR it might so happen that they would see your talent immediately.

It's for you to decide and whatever the outcome be, it would be you who must take credit or responsibility for the same.



Best of luck!!!
