This day is one emotional day for me as i have resigned from my current company after nearly 9 years of my service. I know its a very tough decision that i have taken, but i have no choice other than quitting. I am not a kind of person who frequently jump jobs, this is my second jump in my 10 years of service, but this time i really felt that i need this change, as my career seem to go and hit a blind dead end, and its my responsibility to take appropriate action ...
I took this decison based on some actions taken by my management which really upset me and I felt very bad over those decisions. I felt that my management is not really taking care of my team and they failed to sense the quality of the resources. I happened to lose two good quality people just for the heck of it. Today they have taken a replacement for my team by paying a very high salary to a new comer, if the management would have spent half that amount on the old guys, they would have retained them as well as their experience and expertise. This is one area all management teams make the mistake, they think they can get the job done with a new comer and they just dont care about the existing experienced people.
Its now almost curtains for my existing team with just one junior member working for it, I hope my management atleast takes care of that resource and try to retain her. People working for BRAND is now a history, people work for better challenging opportunities and a hefty pay package, I hope my management hears this loud and clear and take appropriate action to avoid further damage. But its an excellent team to work with, the director who heads our unit is a great human being, but unfortunately his hands are tied and mouth stitched, so poor guy could not do anything beyond his limits. I wish this team a good future and great success and I hope they start looking at people's quality and reward them as accordingly.
Its really really tough to miss a company to which you have been associated for almost a decade. This is one place where i loved to play a longer innings, but its so sad that i have to call it a day very soon.
