Worked remotely for years before I set up myself. Trust is a major factor alright. Every week I sent through a summary of what I was working on for that week. It was great as it gave me a focus but allowed the trust to continue with the director. I got far more work done working remotely compared to being distracted in the office.

I like working for a small company. I have worked for both over the years but I find you have more ownership of your role in a small company. Most small companies are also interested in your ideas and these ideas can be a lot easier to implement too.
I say go with the small company. I also think it looks well on your CV as you get much more experience in every aspect of the business. In the hiring process I think it will give you the advantage in the future. As Matt Weston says above, everyone tends to muck in. With the right small company you are really part of the team and you can make a difference. While larger companies have more resources you can get caught in waiting for things to happen and the red tape. It can be a bit more flexible in a small company. The right person will use their intuitive and figure out things for themselves. It will give you the foundation to go on to bigger and better things.
When I worked for a larger organisation (17 offices) I thought there would be great procedures and processes in place. It couldn't have been further from the truth. No management skills at all.
That's just my experience and thoughts. Best of luck.

Simple but very effective tips. The amount of times that I have interviewed people only to be badgered a few days later looking for a decision. It takes time to interview candidates. Simple mistakes can annoy potential employers. This would be an ideal document to send to interviewee's although you can't hold their hand.
