What kind of company people work for is truly important for their lives. Some people argue that a large company is better than a small company. I, however, prefer to work at a smaller company rather than a larger company.
First, people working at a small company can communicate better with other workers. The smaller the number of employee is, the deeper their communication becomes. For example, I have a friend named Shin, who is an accountant and works at one of the biggest companies in Japan. The company has about five hundred employees and there are over forty workers in his department. He has to communicate with them so that he can do his work smoothly. However, he does not spare enough time to talk with each person because the number of worker is large. Enevitably, he cannot establish profound relationships with coworkers. On the other hand, I now work for a small hospital. Because it has only six employees including office workers and nurses. I can communicate very well with other five workers everyday and have built close relationship with them, which has improved work-efficiency and made me feel relaxed. It can be seen from this example that smaller company can make it possible for workers to communicate well with each other.
Second, a person in a large company can take necessary actions less freely than in a large company. For instance, When I began working as a doctor, since I wanted to experience variety of diseases, I chose a quite large hospital in Tokyo, Japan. The hospital can accommodate over 700 patients, and in order to do so, it employes several hundreds workers. It was true that I was able to learn a lot about medicine in this large hospital. However, when I thought that the ordering system of drug in the hospital could be improved and suggested this idea to my boss, he rejected it saying that the procedure would be complex because the size of the whold hospital was quite large. When It comes to whether or not workers can cause necessary changes, the large size of job place can work negatively.
In conclusion, I prefer working for a small company to for a large company because smaller companies can help workers to communicate better with each other and also because larger companies can prevent workers from doing things freely. I hope that I will continue to work at smaller firms or hospitals.Read more
