    Urgent career advice

    Hello. I am currently deciding between two job offers. I am a graduate in summer however I will be going into work not on a graduate scheme as I am trying to focus on CAE specifically FEA.

    One offer is for an incredibly large company working in a specific area of FEA.

    The other is a small consultancy company (with very large reputable clients) that cover a wide range of FEA applications in various industries.

    I am struggling to decide between them as I am thinking long term in light of my personal development and future career choices. I will be using an in house piece of software with the large company and widely available software such as Ansys with the smaller company.

    Does anyone have any advice for me?


    Thanks. J.

    Working for a small vs large organization question... If I had to do it all over - small organization all the way!
    Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

    Seconded.

    I loved the opportunity to work with/for some outstanding specialists in the large firm environment, but it wasn't till hitting the small firm circuit that could really grow as an engineer rather than doing a few silly things because the team needed more billable hours.
