I think I'd advise the reverse, at least in terms of company size. A small company is more likely to value you for what you do, rather than want to replace you because your salary has become "too high". The small company I work for has a family feel to it, with zero office politics, but possibly not the same career advancement possibilities you'd get at a megacorp.

Perhaps startups are a special case; an established small company will be more stable. Or at least, your future is tied more to the performance of the company than the whims of those above you.

What advantage can you think of that a $1000 bill has over 10 x $100 bills?

I can dream up a few, like if I want to bribe my congressman maybe I don't need as many envelopes, or on those days where I need to shift $20,000,000 in cash it's a few pounds lighter so the shipping is cheaper.

But none of these would make me "strongly favor" bringing it back.

"How can they stop to individuals that have agreed to use these notes doing business with them?"

That seems pretty unlikely - why would criminals want to set up their own currency (which is effectively what this means). Currencies operate entirely on trust, and there's no honour amongst thieves...

I could imagine them using something that has intrinsic market value and is fungible, like gold or cocaine.
