Its 2:24am in the morning and I thought to share some experience about my feelings at a job with all you folks. ‘CONTENT’, a word used in a very ‘inspiring’ way, by someone I adore, to boost me up. It means you are happy, and while you may not think things are perfect, you can be happy despite that. Am sitting in my cubicle in my workplace.
I live with room partners. One of them is DBA and other is Software Tester working in the same company, which I work for. One of them is television(Sas Bahu) fan, and the other is afraid of future at age of 21. They are my good friends. Most of the Indian software ‘PROFESSIONALS’ are like this.
I have a manager who thinks, that employees are known by hard-work, not by ‘SMART-WORK’. My IT architect adores smart work, but he’s always busy. I can understand his hectic schedule. My room partner works for the same team, which I work for.
I am kind of person who loves his work. If I have something to do, I don’t care who I work for, my aim aims to love it, and make the best out of it. I love having ‘FUN’. Let me tell you not a person with very high IQ.
Recently, I met few guys from who started up a new company in Bangalore. They had a small workplace, with around 20 people(guess), compared to my medium sized office with around 150 employees and, my office is air-cooled. People, out there were inspiring, full of ideas, living their own lives. There was a feeling of ‘FREEDOM’ in them. India got free on August 15, 1947. My office has its own dress code, timing restrictions, project deadlines, access cards, rules, and regulations.
I don’t know if you noticed the words I have highlighted. ‘CONTENT’, ‘PROFESSIONALS’, ‘SMART-WORK’, ‘FUN’, ‘FREEDOM’. These are the words, which can describe, any software engineers or any other professional.
Confused? Don’t scratch your brains too much, listen to this.
