When I first started I was eager to learn, grow, and progress. Which I did in my first year of employment. However, the next 4-5 years I was still in that same spot. When I sought for growth in the half way mark of my time there, I was told by Management, "Be content with your position". From there on out, I didn't have any positive feelings except being grateful to have a job. Recently, when I tried to advance in my career again, I was heartbroken by this company after SACRIFING my time, patience, and energy, for the position I wanted, to be given to outsiderS not even from the industry. That was it for me! Then they wanted to offer a 90 day development plan to improve my skills, which I didn't even entertain. Why, because during my time, year after year, I received awards, recognitions, and great reviews.
What really matters to them, is having a body to file an empty spot, $$$ and percentages, how the company is perceived. Well guess what, PERCEPTION IS NOT ALWAY REALITY!
I met some amazing people over the phone.
I never saw 95% of the other employees, inspite of being a phone call away.
