Looking for a new job? If so, one aspect that applicants consider is whether the size of the organization is a good fit for them. Two broad categories of businesses are mom & pop shops vs. big corporations. Each one may be a perfect fit for different types of people, but it’s important to consider the differences. In this article, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of working in both types of environment.
What is it: A small, independent, usually family-owned, controlled, and operated business that has a comparatively smaller number of employees, has smaller sales volume, and is typically not highly scaled or franchised, and, therefore, open for business in only one or several locations.
What is it: Contrasting with a mom & pop shop, a corporation is large-scale business organization that is run by a clearly-defined hierarchy. Typically, there are numerous employees and divisions, and may have a large business presence in multiple locations.
