Arrow’s CEO Speaks on “Culture Shock”

Culture shock: Adjusting to a move from a large firm to a small one

Each week, we seek out expert advice to help a small or medium-sized company overcome a key issue.

Most of Corrine Sandler’s new hires aren’t used to working at a small company.

Ms. Sandler is the founder and chief executive officer of Fresh Intelligence Research Corp., a Toronto-based market-research company she started in 2004.

It’s a boutique firm, but most of Ms. Sandler’s 18 employees were hired away from much larger companies, including some of the largest in the industry.

However, many employees who move from a large, multinational company to a small boutique firm often suffer from business “culture shock” when they first arrive, Ms. Sandler says.

At large companies, employees are used to clearly defined job roles, hierarchies, and access to a vast network of resources, she explains.
