After getting a Permanent Residency (PR) visa, expats often face a dilemma while choosing their career path. They are left wondering as to apply for jobs at start-ups and small companies or aim for MNCs.
Let’s look at the pro and cons of both kinds of career paths.
In a start-up, there is always a lot of scopes to learn and grow. You are also likely to come across a few lessons of crisis management that will surely teach you survival skills.
However, the pay in the start-ups might be less compared to regular jobs in MNCs. Also, there might be difficulty in maintaining work-life balance as start-ups tend not to follow the 9 to 5 rule.
This flexibility of timing might be a bane or boon to you depending upon your lifestyle.
Unlike corporates, in start-ups, you can expect a promotion or raise if you perform your role exceptionally well.
As the roles of each employee are well-defined, there is no room for experimenting across verticals in MNCs.
If working within defined roles and achieving the set target is your thing then you are fit to work in an MNC. These companies also set hours for each employee and don’t promote multitasking.
If you consider the salary point of view, employees working in corporates are well-paid. At times, there is also provision for paid overtimes, paid leaves, bonus, insurance, travel, and house allowance
Be it a corporate or a start-up, a hard-working and skilled worker will attain success in any organization.
