What are the main differences between a Senior/Manager role in a big firm vs a small firm?

I am curious about:

1. Technical/accounting skills
2. Extent/frequency/nature of client interaction
3. Supervisory/training responsibilities
4. In office responsibilities (greeting clients, onboarding/interviewing clients and new hires, etc.)
5. Budget adherence, time management, and downtime privileges

I often read or hear about differences regarding the type of work being performed, but I’m curious about other factors related to day-to-day responsibilities. Thanks
