Big Firm or Small Firm?

 
#1 Big Firm or Small Firm?
17/11/2006 17:50

flibberty

I'm fortunate enough to have been made 2 offers: one from a large firm (Deloitte) and one from a new, small but rapidly growing firm (Qedis: founded by ex-Andersen/Deloitte, good clients, ~50 in size and intending to grow rapidly).

With 5 years experience at a big name under my belt would it be sensible to move on to another big name for now or take a risk and go with a less well-known brand but have the potential excitement and other benefits of growing with the firm?

Having become frustrated with big firm politics and 'small cog' syndrome I think I've made my mind up already but I would really appreciate others opinions on what would be the intelligent move for the longer term.

Hi flibberty,

Depends on what you want to achieve.

1. If it's to say "I work for / worked at big compnay X" and the big name already on your CV doesn't cut it, then the large firm move may be the one.

2. If it's for prospects and personal career oppos, then maybe the smaller one is more the ticket.

Given that a Deloitter and an ex-Deloitter are likely to be similar, the two options probably won't differ too much in terms of quality of people you'll work with.

Going to the smaller firm is the riskier option, but probably with better and faster payoff opportunities than grinding it out at a big firm in the hope of becoming partner one day in the distant future (alongside many other partners).

Either way, the choice is yours.

For me, sounds like the move to the smaller firm is the better option. I did something similar before: moved from a big IB to a small MC. So far so good. Happy with my choice.
