QUESTION: Master of small OR Cog in BIG

Old 1 Comment on QUESTION: Master of small OR Cog in BIG 35

I’ll try and make this a basic question.

If you had the choice of being master of a class c 254 host network OR being a cog in a class B network which one would you go for? Forget money and assume you do the same hours, forget budgets, they cannot be compared. Just think from a career point of view. Do you choose the master of not a lot role or a bit part job in a large multi IT department organisation.

    For most people it depends on where they are at in their lives. If you’re young, or have few obligations being in a small company is great because you get to work on everything. The downside is that you may be the only person for your position so essentially you’re always on call. Big companies aren’t very exciting, but if you want to go on vacation over Christmas you can.
