I've been working as an architect for some two and a half years now in ... and most of its been in a small (15 strong staff) architectural concern. In this office we got a lot of participation and control in a project right from the design stages to the execution supervision and all. The drawback was that the firm wasn't all that professional, and didn't do projects fast enough to be competitive in the new economy.

Now I've been given a job offer by a huge multinational architecture corporation thats operating a small army of mega projects in my city.

What are the pros and cons of working in such a huge set up? Does the increased exposure to cuting edge building technology outweigh the standardisation and lac of control that one may face in this kind of corporation??

I'd like some comments.
