small vs big

 
#1 small vs big

Howard Dobson

I'm about to embark on my career.

However, I have been offered a junior position in a smaller consulting firm (made up of disgruntled IBM and PwC consultants).

I'm very pleased with the role/offer and company.

However, will starting out with a smaller company hinder me should I wish to move to a larger/ more well known firm (such as Accenture/Deloitte)?

any info/insight would be great.

ramzo to Howard Dobson (#1)

Given the options of starting in a small firm and going to a large one, versus starting in a large one and staying there, obviously the second option will be more straightforward. Working for a reputable smaller firm isn't a problem - it just means you'll need to adjust to a different style and organisation. Having worked for a small firm started by disgruntled PwC consultants, these things often end up with a very similar culture and procedures to the "parent" despite best intentions to do something very different. As a result, the transition isn't impossible to get accustomed to.
