Does Working for a Bigger Company Mean you are Happier?


Employees working at large companies tend to be happier than counterparts at smaller firms, according to a survey by a human resources consulting firm. The Beacon Group of Toronto measured satisfaction in four areas: management support, career development opportunities, compensation and work environment/co-workers. “Large companies scored equal or higher in every category,” but received particularly high marks for their compensation and commitment to career advancement, Beacon Group says. However, researchers point out that employees at smaller companies sense greater control over their role in the organization and its work environment, whereas workers at larger companies may have grown complacent about their ability to influence the workplace environment.
