6 Reasons to Work for a Small Company
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Some people may think small firms really only benefit their owners. After all, they get the freedom to be their own boss and create and control a service or product as they see fit.
But whether it's working for a coffee shop, a florist or a dentist, there are multiple advantages for small-firm employees.
To be fair, most small businesses and startups are unlikely to be in a position to afford to pay employees high salaries seen by, say, an engineer at VMWare (VMW) or the multimillion-dollar bonuses received by investment bankers at Goldman Sachs (GS).But working for a small firm can provide other career-satisfying attributes. After all, a successful career isn't just about making oodles of cash. (Though the idea does sound nice.) Working for a small company is not for everyone -- some workers want more structure and the potential stability of a larger company. But others wouldn't consider leaving for greener pastures when they think about the close-knit community formed at many small businesses. TheStreet came up with six reasons why small firms are great places to work:
