    Just wanted to share I am so excited this week.
    I am finishing up my current job this Wednesday and will start a new job on Monday 27th of August.
    I am leaving the big companies I worked for over the last 2 decades and I will start in a small marketing company as a junior marketing assistant.
    I will start working for some Dutch and German clients and I am so excited.

    Except a salary increase I will also work 1 hour less a day and the job is much closer to my home too which will save me about 50 quid a week on petrol. So a win-win situation here.
    I am now also able to bring my daughters to school in the morning before driving into work.

    In the big companies it is just very hard to advance in career as mostly you are a number and all your input to improve procedures are being put in the bin.
    I have really good hopes that in this small company,only 14 people,my voice and input will be heard more and also appreciated.

    As I have a bachelors in marketing, I am really looking forward to this job.

    Keep ya's posted. :):cheers:

    Fabulous news! All the best for your new endeavor. :thumbsup:

    Except for a brief period of 2 years, I worked only for SME's and you are right. Your personal impact will be clearly visible whereas in a big company you are barely that number and are mostly on a rigid track as to where your career might lead.

    In the last company (SME with appr. 120 people) I worked for before turning freelancer I had sole signature power (registered with the German Companies House, called Handelsregister). Those things even get published in Germany in a weekly bulletin and an announcement is posted for one week at the entrance to the Companies House. I felt so honored, still got the piece of paper from that weekly bulletin somewhere. That was the moment when I really felt that my personal work has an impact.

    On the other hand, I remember the 2 years when I worked for Sumitomo (Dunlop), whenever I would call HR at HQ they often wouldn't even say hello. The first thing I would mostly hear was "Ihre Mitarbeiternummber bitte" (your employee number please). Felt so denigrated, every time.
