Why Should I Leave ?
When I joined my first job, I have never thought will I leave this organization or not? As per circumstances I remained for a while with the employer despite of quite much post WTC financial crisis with the company. Anyways, I left when company asked me to 🙂
As my career moved onwards, I switched some companies due to many factors like:
- Having absolutely no structure or hierarchy. Funny part is that most of the companies top management call themselves a matrix organization which by no means fulfills the definition. Just calling itself a matrix organization does not serve any purpose 🙂
- Lack of communication or you can say haphazard mode of communication.
- Having lots of managers 🙂 everyone seems to be manager and you never know who you are ?
- Very little or no appreciation at all. Delivering is your responsibilities but you do a lot going out of your boundaries to deliver but having no credit definitely hurts.
- Bad apples, yes the bad apples who are spoiling the culture and always trying to make things worst for people they don’t favor.
- Last but not the least if you (an employee) have got no social life for longer period of time, ultimately employee will leave with frustration. Working on offshore does not mean you are not human.
Gallup conducted a survey over a million employees and 80,000 managers and was published in a book called “First Break All The Rules”. It came up with this surprising finding:
If you’re losing good people, look to their immediate boss. Immediate Boss is the reason people stay and thrive in an organization. And he’s the reason why people leave. When people leave they take knowledge, experience and contacts with them, straight to the competition.
When I came across the article by WIPRO chief, it immidiately reminds me why I left other organizations 🙂 Google the article, its worth reading.
