IMHO, I think the best would be unicorn startups if can. Since they have the funding (wonít worry too much you will be laid off as compared to very small company), there would be seniors to learn from, and less red tapes to explore different stuffs. MNC will be very structured, hierarchical and domain focused so your skill-set will be in-depth but less versatile. Unless you have strong financial backing and donít have to worry about money then startup might be more fun/less boring since you can directly discuss your suggestions with the boss and explore different solutions and use your creativity and perform.

I have friends who have joined startups and have jumped ship because they were laid off (company not doing well), salary delay (cash flow issue), and low salary increment. And then there are those who still stayed because money isnít an issue for them. Think long term. You are only young once. Good luck.

always go MNC.

Better benefits, better promotions, pay, looks good on resume.

For example, during this WFH thing, alot of MNC provides $$$ for you to buy WFH gear. My company gave me $750 to get monitor and secret lab chair lol. My other friends at SMC don't even get anything....

At SMC, u say u need chair they just tell u take from office or come back office work.

I'll never understand anyone who joins SMC. You either suck or you want to do specialized things like game development, medical tech graphics, etc then in that case SMC is fine. Otherwise, MNC, always...

Even for uni interns, MNC pays are always 30-40% more. Can't imagine a uni intern getting $800, kena scam hard.

Can agree with the above. If there is an offer from MNC, just think carefully why you want to forgo it.
In the early stage of career, try to build up earning capability. You can decide on alternative options at a later stage.

Once your domain is set, which is normal for MNC because job scope is usually well defined and specific, usually its hard to try to apply to other domain jobs a few years later on. HR will rarely consider you anymore. My friends and I have the same sentiment in our group chat. ie. Database Engineer to Software Engineer.

Also I have friends who are easily bored so they enjoyed the flexibility of changing job scope every few months and explore a lot of different tech stuffs in a SME.

But at the same time in-dept domain is very good for your career as the more specialised you are, you are worth more and able to demand higher salary to solve problems others canít. Thatís if you donít dislike your job at the very least.

Not true, always go for SMC, you get to learn more and have more flexibility. In MNC, you just sit there waiting for time to get promoted, if you are young not worth going down this dreaded path
