A new job?

Filed under: Personal, Startup, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — . @ 6:13 am

I was talking with a friend of mine. He has never worked in the same place for over 1 year. I have been in the same place for over 3. Eternity in our business. In many ways, I am sick and tired of my place of employment. Stupid people, annoying regulations, political decisions that make no sense. You name it.
He told me – just find another job.
However, what I figure is this. My company is made of people. And this is how people behave. That will be true in every company I will go to. There will always be annoying people. There will always be struggles of power, and irrational behavior.
On the other hand, the most common way to increase your salary, is to get a new job. Or, as the song by Chava Alberstein goes, in another place, the despair becomes more comfortable.

  1. As you said – a company is made of people. I would never hire someone with a record of changing jobs every year, no matter how smart this person may be – you just cannot build up a real people-oriented environment with a person like that!
    But I do agree that there is a point where changing jobs is the right thing to do. Whether it’s after 6 months, 3 years or 10 years – it depends on a lot of factors. The only thing I can tell you, is that there are workplaces out there where you’ll want to stay without thinking all the time that you’re wasting your time and energy. I hope you’ll find such a place 🙂
