I'm using MS Access since > 20 years for my private DBs and it does a good job for me, but:

What may happen if you use it in a bigger company and one of the other limitations of MS Access become(s) a bottleneck?

Limits:
- Total size for an Access database (.accdb or .mdb), including all database objects and data: 2 gigabytes, minus the space needed for system objects.
- Total number of objects in a database: 32,768
- Query Recordset size: 1 gigabyte

and many more as shown here:
