BUREAUCRACY AND FACELESSNESS: 7 CHALLENGES IN WORK TO LARGE CORPORATIONS

It’s great when you answer the question “Where do you work?” With the name of a well-known company. But there are spots on the Sun.

Giant corporations do not always guarantee perfect performance. Sometimes a big name hides a reality in which, for example, they save on salaries. Strikes at Ford factories and at McDonald’s are proof of this.

Talk about the difficulties faced by employees of large companies.
1. Career growth depends not only on you
The career prospects in a large company are objectively greater than in a company with 20 people. But no one has canceled the competition. Be prepared for the battle to the last, as when entering eminent universities.

Cons of working in a large company.

High ranks reach units, the rest have to be content with what is. Only the elite will grow to top management.

In addition, major players value not only professional qualities. The increase is more likely to be received by an average specialist with leadership qualities than a modest superprofit. It’s like in sports: do not occupy high places in competitions – go to the coaches.

2. It takes courage to voice your opinion
A convenient subordinate is an ideal option for a manager. Such a person will never receive a promotion, because he is so irreplaceable, even if he sits better in his place, “I will give him a prize so that I don’t be indignant.

To get a promotion, don’t be afraid to give your opinion. Reasonable behavior within reasonable limits will give advantages and highlight in the eyes of management, as a person with sound criticism.

Cons of working in a large company.

If you see objective gaps in the strategy that the CEO has proposed, this is the very reason to show yourself as a cool specialist.

3. Nobody will re-educate you
Small and medium-sized companies are often ready to hire a person without experience or with experience, but without education. To train, grind for themselves and enjoy the result – they have time for this.

Large companies often cannot afford such a luxury and hire ready-made specialists.

But if skills are not enough, there is no responsibility, motivation, self-organization or ability to communicate with the team, no one will tolerate such an employee. It is much more real to find a more suitable candidate than to try to re-educate someone.

4. The depersonalization of man
The so-called “cogs of the mechanism” for leaders of high ranks really look the same. People are not even known by their names and positions.

Forbes talk about the phenomenon of the psyche of a volcano (a merger of minds) that occurs in large companies. This means that it is more difficult to perceive a person as a separate person.

In such an environment, it is difficult to remain yourself, not to think collectively. Employees of large companies should not be afraid to show emotions, express their opinion (when appropriate). The main thing is to remember that first of all you are a person, and only then – a member of the team.

5. Schedule from 9:00 to 18:00
The age of the Internet has spawned a new category of people – freedom-loving and unable to work in the office from Monday to Friday. All professions in freelance are an outlet for those who consider themselves to be owls, travelers, hipsters and other free “poets.”

Cons of working in a large company.

This is evidenced by Beth Braccio, a sociologist and independent author. In the article “The Pros and Cons of Working at Large Companies”, she notes that those who seek flexibility will feel constrained by a large company.

Corporate culture is usually tough and does not allow you to arrange work in the home office mode. And to sit in the office for someone who is used to come up with designs on the veranda overlooking the sea is a mission impossible.

In addition, you will have to face the office dress code, working subordination, and other consequences of the organizational structure of the company.

6. Bureaucracy in full bloom
In bureaucratic fuss, many cool ideas and talented minds are lost. Coordination of each step, up to the issue of the office to a new employee, will drive anyone crazy. This was noticed by the authors of Forbes.

It is ironic that the bosses of large companies and employees are called the minus. No one likes it, and no one knows how to deal with it. It remains only to wait for such a revolutionary, as Jack Welch in General Electric at one time was.

7. Corporate zombies
Team building, corporate parties and the intangible motivation of employees no longer surprise anyone. All this is designed to make people part of the working family, to make them feel their importance and belonging to the community.

Leadership is beneficial to get a cheer patriot. In this situation, it is important for employees to maintain a balance between personal and corporate values. Do not forget your true goals in life.

And those who do not like such events should consider whether they are ready to put up with this side of corporate life.
