Why work in Small and Medium sized Enterprise?

A smaller company obviously has all the function that a larger company has, the big advance with working in a small company is that you will be part of the whole company rather than working with only one department. Your career path is usually quicker in a smaller company due to the fact that you will be working closer to the management group.

A recent study done by University West, Sweden in Slovenia, Lithuania and Sweden shows that university graduates rate job satisfaction very high in SMEs. Challenging work, more responsibility, flat organization and being close to management makes university graduates stay in SMEs in rural areas.
