I admit my job is not a dream job yet but I am grateful to God that I do have a job. Maybe it’s due to my long tenure (more than 6 years) or my profitability but there are a few benefits which I enjoy in my job. I do have bad experiences as mentioned earlier in a previous post.
Here are my top five reasons that I like about my job.
A. Mentoring role.
I see myself as a mentor to the direct reports under me. As I have mentioned earlier, I have managed about 20 direct reports and counting. To see them grow from their humble beginnings and now doing well in different companies is a good feeling.
B. Work environment.
My job profile is flexible with options like working from home, extended leaves (months),etc. I know it’s mainly due to the seniority that I have but I have seen the same options given to other employees too.
I have worked with 3 different CEOs and my current CEO is extremely patient with me. He makes sure that I meet my targets in a diplomatic way. He also pushes me so that I end up doing projects which I felt I would mess up in the first place.
There are a few clients who suck the life out of you but most are reasonable. As mentioned earlier I had some great experiences good and bad which has helped me grow as a person. I can only thank my clients for that.
E. Team mates.
I have few team mates who have stuck by my side till now whom I can count on when the going gets tough in my work life. We have prayed together, cried together and enjoyed together during a project execution. I don’t think I would have survived this long if not for the friendships which had developed over the years in my job.
