You should conduct plenty of research on the company ahead of time, so you get a sense of the structure. You would not want to say you prefer working at smaller companies when the business you applied for has over 500 employees. This is also an opportunity to talk about what work-life balance you prefer. If you have a family, then you may prefer the structure of a standard 9-to-5 position. However, younger people without such responsibilities may be able to devote more time to the business.
You want to avoid coming across as too forgettable with your response. You should not say how your ideal workplace is one that pays a lot and gives you plenty of vacation time. The best thing you can do in your response is to simply be yourself.
