im starting to hate everything. my boss always ask us to do his job. i already caught him sleeping! sobrang nagulat talaga ako nung nakita ko syang natutulog. my officemates hate their job as well so may rantings everywhere. they invite me to out and drink kaso everytime na umiinom kami puro rantings lang din, so i stopped joining them for dinner and drinks kasi nakakapagod na sa office, nakakapagod pa rin sa night out. so i feel detached from everything. i so wanna quit. i cant quit naman, as i have a pending visa application. i dont want to start another job kasi aalis din naman ako

It's really funny. I have been working in my present company for about 6 months already but the feeling I've had with my previous company started to kick in and is progressing. The thing is, I felt that when I was more than 3 years from my previous company. Haha!

Akala ko nung una, my present company would be better. Well, somehow it is, lalo na sa compensation, but in the long run, I just found out that money isn't everything. I left my previous company kasi nafeel ko that they are not willing to retain me with all the job that I'm doing pero dito sa present company ko, medyo wala silang pakialam sa mga tao: the bosses would conduct meetings whenever they would want to without considering that some people are celebrating their holidays, the bosses don't know what they are doing (there are several ones who do and they are the ones usually ignored! Imagine that!), sobrang garapalan sa playing favorites, they make decisions without even informing the employees like magugulat na lang kami.

I transferred here thinking that I will be staying here for a long time. Yun nga lang, mukang ang aga kong nadiskubre that it's not worth it at nasasayang lang ang oras ko dito. So job-hunting mode ako ngayon. Parang ang hirap pero I know that I needed to leave na as soon as possible. Ayoko din naman maging slacker to the highest level dito dahil lang sa nawawalan na ako ng respeto at gana.
Keep optimism at hand. You lose twice by thinking negatively.

Hi sisses. I'm having a dilemma right now. Here's the situation:

I'm currently employed as contractual sa present work ko for one year now. Out of all the jobs I had before, dito talaga ko sobrang enjoy. I feel productive at gusto ko talaga yung ginagawa ko - something I did not feel before, ever. When it comes to the people sa company, okay naman generally kahit na yung iba may seniority complex talaga, pero maybe ganun talaga eh.

I was hesitant at first to accept this job kasi sa past work ko na hindi ko naman talaga gusto yung ginagawa, ippromote pa ako at tataas talaga sweldo ko. But I decided to give up higher salary for the chance to work on something I think I would like. And up to this day, I feel I made the right choice. Kasi very fulfilling talaga yung trabaho ko ngayon.

Now here's my issue. I know contractual lang ako dito. Nung tinanggap ko to, nandun yung hope na sana i-absorb ako. Marami-rami kasi sa department namin na ganun yung nangyari. They started as contractuals at first tapos, na-absorb na. Yung iba, sakto na may nag-resign tapos sila yung pumalit. Yung iba, ginawan talaga ng position at pinaglaban sa HR. So I'm hoping na sana ganun din ang mangyari sa kin.

Pero lately, I'm getting this hunch na wala akong chance na ma-regular at all. I feel wala yun sa radar ng boss ko. Sakin nandun din yung feeling na base sa ginagawa ko, I don't deserve na ma-regular kasi siguro parang support lang ako eh. I don't have the capacity to make bigger things happen.

So yun, sad talaga. I'm in my mid 20s now and had around 4 jobs already at never pa akong naging regular at di ako enjoy sa ginagawa. With my present work, I like the company and I like my job pero in terms of sweldo at benefits, wala eh. Malungkot ako kasi first time ko lang nagkaroon ng trabaho na masasabi ko talaga gusto ko, pero ganun pa din, mukhang contractual na lang ata ako forever.

Ngayon hindi ko alam if I should stick it out first and wait a bit longer, or maghanap na talaga ng iba. Ang hirap eh kasi kung may work man na gusto ko talagang ma-regular, eto yun eh. I'm afraid na wala na kong makikitang ganitong work na fulfilling at masaya at the same time. :(

Any words of advice, sisses?

joining!

IMO, Its really hard to "makisama" with other people you just met at the office. really hate what I had experience two years ago but I am blessed with my work now, no stress only work, laugh trip at masaya lang :)

For me, as soon as I feel different with the environment i am in, i weigh if it will make me happy by staying or if this will make me worse should i stay. in the end, i chose to go. career improvement.

Sabi nga, Stay if your happy; Leave if your not :)

what if yung compensation naman ang hindi mo ma let go. hindi happy but the salary is more than enough as in umaabot na sa 6 digits. di ba ang hirap mag decide to just leave basta basta.
I won't let someone from my past, have any bearing on my future.

i really really wanna quit my job! grabe!!! super stressed na ko sa company na to! naiinis ako sa boss ko! alam nyo ba yung pakiramdam na parang wala syang tiwala sa kakayahan mo na magagawa mo yung trabaho mo na kelangan pa kumuha ng ibang tao para i-check. grabe!!! kung pwede lang talaga na magsalita against him, marami kaming pwedeng ilabas ng ka-officemate ko. tulad ng pagpunta-punta nya sa cebu na wala kang proof kung OB ba talaga yun or what. and take note, kuha sya ng kuha sa petty cash namin kada alis nya tapos instead i-liquidate yung mga gastos tapos ibalik yung remaining peso, ang ginagawa pa nya is naghahanap ng mga resibo na kahit hindi na from cebu. sabi ng accountant namin hindi naman nya allowance yun para gawin so parang ang nangyayari nagiging allowance yun sa kada alis nya. tapos as a PM hindi ko alam kung ano nangyayari sa mga meetings nya kasi if there's someone to know regarding his business meeting... ako yun dahil if ever man totoo yung mga meetings nya, i should know para may coordination at tumatakbo yung project.

tapos i heard pa na magkakaroon daw ng recession dun sa sister company ng company namin. tapos ang promotor is yung boss ko... kasi daw para makatipid. makatipid?? pano kami makakatipid eh kumuha sila ng new office, tapos yung mga hindi naman kelangan kumuha, like yung PLDT na may mga local local something, akalain nyo umabot ng 67k ang bill namin... dba?? san ka nakakita na nagtitipid ng ganun??? i hate my boss!!! my team also hates him!!!

i am looking for another job na talaga once na may mag ok lang talaga dun, i will file a resignation immediately.

yes sis geekybride corruption na talaga!

sabi nung accountant namin, the last time na humingi daw ng 20k un kasi aalis papuntang cebu ang binigay lang daw na resibo is worth 7k so yung 13k wala..ang sabi sa kanya maghahanap pa daw ng resibo. hindi naman nya ma-question.

kung tutuusin yung mga ka-level nya dito sa office, pag umaalis, nagpapa-rereimburse lang tapos hanggat kayang makatipid, magtitipid. eh yung boss ko???

my gosh!!! nag ambisyon gusto nya may sarili syang office kaya ayun kumuha kami ng isang unit tapos may sarili na syang room. kaya ang nangyari lalong feeling so bossy!!!

i wanna do that really! pero cannot be. kasi ganito un. si Company A is already 8yrs (yan yung mag papa-recession) tapos si Company B kami yun (kami naman yung new sister company ni Company A). si Company B has 3 employees (ako, yung accountant and yung boss ko), in-short wala pa kami dapat ipagmalaki. I've been in Company A for 3 years then since nag built sila ng company to give focus dun sa project na yun tinayo si Company B. so inilipat ako kay Company B kasi ako yung PM nung product na yun. so as of now, 3 pa lang kami talaga.

masyado kasi sya malakas sa chairman (owner) ng company. magaling sya magpa-ikot ng ulo. kung tutuusin if concern talaga siya kay Company A at pwede pang hindi mag recession, hindi kami dapat kumuha ng isang uinit. kaso ambisyoso sya. may room na kami dati, kaming 3 yun, sama-sama kaso he really wanted to have an own office. kaya nung nabakante yung unit na katabi namin na may mga executive na room, pinakuha nya yun from 15k to more than 45k ang rent namin, asan yung essesnce ng pagtitipid dun, to think sa isang bulsa lang naman kinukuha yung pera.

tapos ang plano pa, sa mga tatanggaling "daw" na empleyado kay Company A, possible daw na walang makuha na separation pay. sabi namin ng kasama ko, hindi pwede yun unless bankruptcy ang i-declare ni Company A kaso magtatanggal sila na operating pa rin si Company A at kumikita pa rin. so hindi pwedeng hindi nila bayaran yung mga tanggalin nila.

nag vo-volunteer na nga kami ng ka-team ko hahaha! bayaran na lang kami para makaalis na!  ;D

sis,
ang hirap nga.  bistado kayo agad.  kung magsusumbong pala kayo, 2 lang kayong suspects, ang matira accomplice pa. hahaha.  hanap ka na lang ng bagong trabaho, if di mo na talaga kaya i-endure. mukhang di ka naman mahihirapang maghanap, since naghahandle ka na nga isang buong product eh.  good luck, sis, ha?

Just wondering lang, if the company is ok (policies, values, benefits wise) and it's only your role you don't like, why not look for opportunities within the company rather than resign?

I feel like a lot of people make the rash decision to resign when they are no longer happy with their role - there are other options naman e. And really, sometimes moving to a new company won't solve the problem. Look at ways to rejuvenate yourself outside your work as well. I personally set small goals for myself so I have something to look forward to and work doesn't seem as dreary.
