You have an interview for an IT position with NewTech, a large telecommunications company, and you want to learn more about the firm and its organizational structure. To prepare for the interview, you decide to review your knowledge about corporations, including the following questions:
1. What are the four organizational levels in a typical company?
2. Go online and find three examples of retailers that offer both in-store and Web-based sales. What were the firms? Which one did you like best, and why?
3. What is empowerment? Provide two specific examples.
4. What types of information systems might a large company use? Would the same systems be found in a smaller firm? Why or why not?
