That will be a good thing and give your wider experience.
You have worked with large organisation and seen the functioning of the setup there.This combined experience will do good for you.
Where ever you work-read all basic regulations, laws and know the important parts which affect your day to day work.
Different industries have different working styles, but HR is all about people connect and you should go about being people centric while keeping organisational and legal aspects in mind.

The career growth of any individual is directly proportional to the potential of the individual which has been gained through knowledge and experience. As you move forward, what matters a lot is the value you create for the company, the best practices and processes that you have implemented and your contribution to the company. So, I would say the individual will own 80% or more responsibility in creating an impact in one's career.
Apart from the headcount of 20, I request you to gather the below details of the company.
When was the company founded?
Advertisement company (about what and the modes)
Growth of the company (any improvement in recent years)
Structure of the company
More importantly, as the headcount is 20 what opportunity you will see that you get to learn and test your skills.
If there are no standard policies and processes, you can build those which is suitable for the company and this will add weight-age in your profile.
You should understand the vision of the company and check if you can contribute to the company's vision with your knowledge and experience.
The Cons may include....
You shouldn't end up doing the administration activities which are repetitive in nature by which you won't learn anything new.
In small companies, lack of proper guide/mentor who is excellent in the same field is also an issue. You have o do all on your own.
Job security is another pain area in small size companies.
I conclude to analyze yourself and the company, what opportunities you see that you can do in 5 years in the company. Do your own research and deliver your best.
Who knows, many start-ups will grow aggressively after certain point of time.

In general a thumb rule is followed by every establishment to recruit people having exposure/experience in same and similiar nature of business.
The best way of learning is by doing or involeved in jobat not by textual knowledge. The textual knowledge is nothing but a guideline but in end your exposure is helpful.
It is always advisable to consider same & similiar nature of organisation for career growth.

#AnonymousIt doesn't differ but if you have worked for 500 + employees you would have been stick to single work but with less count you will so have explore to other works. As we all work for salary and not for the small or big company.

You must ponder over the relevant points raised by Thiyagua.
What is important for you to assess whether in this 20+advertising company , you are likely to get opportunities to utilize your past experiences fully to make significant cotrubution and get full job satisfaction.
Prima facie, I don't believe so as there may not be worthwhile areas to contribute. If anything, it will be miniscule and on the long haul, it may prove to be frustrating .At the cost of sounding negative, think and act after deep thought.
