I always wanted to Quit on monday morning!

This is may be inspired by Tata Safari adv., today after two years into the job the thought is becoming a reality ...

I quit... yea i have put down my papers today. There are multiple reasons for quitting .. but regulars on my blogs will know. I cannot take it any more ... all the hype about corporate culture etc. are just words , nothing more ... at the end of the day its the same as in any govt. organization in India. Actually corp. culture, professionalism, ethics etc are just buzz words which looks good in magazine surveys.

Nobody actually gives a damn about tranperancy in the organization, they are merely big words which are used in PPT for campus recruitment or used as fillers in websites.

Picking up from my last post, i was cornered in a team meeting but in vain. Since then i have had meeting with the director HR and the response is a sham , making mockery of things. When such things are happening, it is not appropriate for me to continue here in such unprofessional environment.

No, i do not have a job in hand and neither do i care abt it ... coz i will have one sooner or later. Lets see how things turn up ...

Hey ! don't worry.if you are not happy in the place where you spend maximum amout of time,it's better to quit.And bravo for having such a high spirit,that sooner or later you'll get a job.

Hey, thats great!

You stood up for something you believe in. Rarely do we get to see such things. There's no point working for a company like that especially after all that happened.

Getting a job in Blr shudnt be difficult for you. I'm sure you would get a far better job really soon.

Best of luck!! :)

Abhinav said...

Sharda: Thanx.

Raj: Yea man getting job in Blr is not difficult. Thanx.

greensatya said...

Abhinav, that's a wise step. No need to work in an organisation where ethics don't matter.

Send me your resume' if you wish. I will refer it to couple of places.

I've always been irritated with the way corporations throw around the word "ethics" to refer to credentials, standard operating procedures or some other corporate jargon. The true meaning of the word is far off from being applicable to the corporate realm.
