same tayo, ako yung pinaka-tenured, kaso yung 1 na ka-team ko higher post na sya nung pumasok siya, nung time na pumasok sya saka lang ako na-promote to the same level, by our boss1.
Then after a few years, we were expecting to get promoted again, 2-3 of them got promoted except me in 2010, malabo nga kasi yung 1 tamad and choosy sa tasks and walang dedicated project,
supposed to be helper/backup ko sya. Kesyo magaling daw, e aanhin mo ang galing ng tao kung di
mo naman effectively and efficiently mapakinabangan at maasahan, diba?
That year na-redundate yung boss1 namin, so naiwanan na talaga ako, forgotten.
Boss1 was a good boss who takes care of everyone although pagdating sakin eh delayed sya.
Another 2 years pa 2012, I never got promoted, instead I got redundated na,
kasabay kong na-redundate yung boss/friend na sumunod sa naunang boss1 namin.
For me, it was a good thing, for me and my boss/friend, kasi dead-end na careers namin dun.
And ayaw na namin yung culture, di na tulad ng dati nung kami pa and the pioneers who came and are gone na rin. Although kami yung pinaka-matagal, wala na kaming influence, kahit seniors pa kami. Di na kami nababagay dun.
Sabay kami pumasok ng company pero siya kasi sinuwerte sa mga naging boss nya.
In our stay, my friend got promoted 6 times, ako 1-3 times (2 realignments and 1 promotion).
When we started, I was 2 levels above my boss/friend, when we left, I was 2 levels below my boss/friend.
Swerte lang at di kami nag-resign, although balak na rin talaga namin.
Lalo na ako, stagnate nako dun eh. Sabi ko if I don't get promoted in 2012, lipat na by 2013.
They always say, you get promoted because of PERFORMANCE not TENURE.
Totoo naman yun. Pero kasi no one can do the things I do, but I do them well,
di lang nila feel that I am in fact doing my job well, not by their standards/methods.
Proven naman yun by my annual performance rating,
sad lang kasi I had no increase for 2 years that I did not get promoted.
Ok na sakin I did not get promoted kasi ang dating pa nun e
magkakautang na loob pako sa peers ko for helping me get promoted.
When sila rin ang hindrance for my non-promotion kasi they speak bad of me,
kasi di ako sipsip with them, and na brand nako ng kabilang team which is another story
(different skills/tasks/projects/people/shift-na mahirap talaga, na di nila pinagdaanan,
kaya they don't understand, years have passed na ito, and they never let me move on
from past mistakes. oh, magaling pa sila magblame, since taga-escalate lang sila)
Saka sobrang galing nila magbuhat ng sarili nilang bangko at magsaluhan sa isa't-isa.
BTW, our promotion cycle usually happens 2-3 yrs. Imagine my boss/friend, 6x.
Sometimes it's a budget issue also that they cannot promote everyone all at the same time.
Also, natuto na akong maging deadma sa paligid ko. Wala akong paki-alam in the sense na
I don't envy if they get promoted, but I speak up na lang my POVs and give feedbacks.
