It’s been more than 5 years since I got my first pay check, I just took the time to think though the experience I have gone through, the people I have met and the totally unexpected twists that have popped in my life over this past years. To the most part it has been very useful and interesting journey, if not anything just for the amount of knowledge that has been acquired is still worth it. I guess I am contempt and thankful in the way I had chosen and what the life has offered.
But, walking through the old memory lane and revisiting all the question that I had before 5 years, I think I have a very definitive answer for one question:
What will make me continue in a company of my work? Is it the company name / package / location or job title?
I thought I would get an answer for that within maybe 1 or 2 years, but I guess as usual my schedule estimate was bit off :). Well, about the question; in my personal opinion it is neither the company name or package or location or even the job title, but it the one person who represent the company to you. It maybe your immediate supervisor / manager, your department head, or technical advisor or the CEO. The only difference it makes to me if I continue in a company is determined by if I have a person who represents my company to me in a admirable way.
Tell me about your criteria to continue in a company?
