Main Question or Discussion Point
I am early in my career working for a small niche company right now, doing a lot of mechanical design. It seems like great experience to me; I am learning a lot about machine parts, manufacturing processes, and drawings. However, I might have an opportunity to move into a large, well-connected company. The position I applied for doesn't exactly sound great -- there is a lot of "paperwork", or mundane organization and data management. But there are definitely a lot of intellectually stimulating areas of the company that I would like to move into. And there could be some very useful and interesting things about the potential position too. One of these jobs has a lot of things going for it -- location, working environment, types of employees...but I won't say which. Because I am wondering if it is worth making the switch just for the more numerous opportunities that a large company can open up.
