What makes you stay?
Hey guys it's been quite sometime now since my last blog article which ironically drew a lot of non related comments, but that is okay, a hit is a hit no matter how you look at it =) Anyway, it has been crazy as hell the past few weeks in the office. People leaving left and right due to various reasons (compensation, workload, professional growth and all those shite... ) A lot has happened in a span of 2 weeks that is testing our ability as supervisors to handle pressure situations. To be honest, things were doing okay the past year even with some constant nagging from one of our process owners , it was generally OK. It was just an accumulation of shitty things that triggered the "happening" in the office. To be honest, I really have no complaints with my job right now, the workload, the type of things I am doing and especially the people I am working with, one of the reasons that made me stay for 4 long years. But I would be a hypocrite not to say that I am not affected with what is happening... the truth is I am. I feel what the other guys are feeling and I completely understand where they are coming from. However I can not show my peers my emotion towards the issue as it will compromise my position in the company. I need to show strength, I need to show confidence and I need to show hope...hope that one of these days, we'll be able to get over this bump and continue working as if nothing has happened.
