Title: on and off decision
Post by: airish_2 on May 08, 2014, 09:03:30 am
I need an advice, i really want to resign to my recent job i feel so stuck here no growth at nabobobo na ako sa profession ko, i keep telling my bf na gusto ko na talaga magresign even some closest friends sabi ko pa sa friend ko na pag andito pa rin ako sa work ko iremind nya ako to resign (para lang mapush ako) last year ko pa balak tapos sinabi ko sa friend at bf ko na iremind ako january this year yun ha then come this month andito pa rin ako.

Sabi ng bf ko nagproprocastinate pa daw ako, gusto ko na talaga umalis kasi nga the only advantage i get here is malapit sa bahay at okay ang mga kaworkmates ko sa department ko pero the rest wala na.

ewan ko ba minsan i so confident and sa other side natatakot din ako what will happen if i resign. :(

There are times na desididong desido na ako tapos biglang nawawala :( ewan ko bakit ganito ako pero pag may nangyari panget agad agad sinasabi ko sa sarili ko i want to resign. hope to hear your opinions sis/bro :)

^^ from experience sis, try to study the situation kapag ok yung mood mo - hindi yung inis na inis or if something bad happened at work. try to list down the pros and cons of your current job. list them down honestly and objectively ah. list mo din yung priorities mo when it comes to work (e.g proximity from your home, shift sched, pay, position, company name, etc). try to check if the pros and cons you've listed matched or did not match your priorities at work. sa akin kasi sis, effective yung ganito..

should you decide to resign, i agree with what sis jonduh said.. before thinking of resigning, perhaps it's a good idea to look first for a new company. mahirap mabakante nowadays. just my two cents worth.

Ganito, maghanap ka muna ng ibang trabaho bago ka mag-isip mag-resign.  ;D

TS, jonduh and baliwsayo are right, maghanap ka muna ng trabaho before you even think of leaving your job. Magreresign ka nga tapos tambay ka naman sa bahay niyo while jobhunting, there's a 50-50 chance na hindi ka rin magiging totally fulfilled habang hindi ka pa productive.

Ako nga sukang-suka na sa ugali ng boss ko pero hindi ako makahanap ng trabaho na mas okay ang compensation/line of work sa current ko kaya hindi ako makaalis. Lol

I did that before sinulat ko na yung pros and cons still lost pa rin ako at di makadecide minsan naiinis na talaga ako sa sarili ko

PROS
-Malapit sa house


CONS

-hindi pwede gamitin ng buong five days yung leave for example this month isa lang vacation leave ko ang dapat gamitin
-No growth for my 2 years tenure no seminar was provided even the important one (will not divulge what kind of seminar it is but it is important in my industry)
-everything has a charge, usage of exceed aircon watts, inventory, cashier etc.
-everything is routine SOP are change without even notice minsan sasabihan nila kami ("di mo alam na bawal ang ganito") to think na yung batas na yun kahapon lang pala sinabi.
-long working hour
-No HMO, and other extra benefits aside from the mandatory benefits.


haha.. natawa ako kasi ang daming obvious sign but i'm still here.

There may be  madami obvious signs -- but which is really important to you???

Less commute time and good relationships with colleagues contribute much to a happy day, after all.

As for the "advance" that did not happen --  1 way to look at it is to study what YOU can do more to cause the advance to happen.  IMO, companies like to keep good employees. Companies like to keep more more-good and better-contributing employees.  Therein lies the key to advance.

It is good that "everything has a charge". Sa cuento mo, it refers to excess usage.  Good, it fosters efficiency on both the part of the employee and the company.  Competition is stiff, very, in these glibal times. So, every place where costs can be cut back &/or productivity is encouraged -- is good for the long-term survival of the business & employment security of its employees. 

Best, you nail down a job first before resigning.

i agree with sis aquacharly. at least the points were explained to you, than by simply saying na "look for a new job before resigning"...

personally, proximity to my workplace and good working relationship with colleagues is of top priority to me. iwas sa unnecessary stress. about advancement and trainings, have you tried to be more pro-active about it? try asking your manager or HR department about future training schedules and how you can join? given this move, your boss can see that you want to grow in your industry, so plus points pa syo yun. about the leaves, have you tried scheduling/spreading your leaves to maximize them? and for those times na more than 1 day VL ang gagamitin mo, have you tried filing it more than a month in advance? in my current office kasi, strict din sa leaves, so we try to schedule and spread the leaves across the months para we could maximize it. for those VLs na more than 1 day, i usually file it 6-8 weeks in advance. my boss usually approves it because he can make the necessary adjustments sa work plan.

pag-isipan mo mabuti sis. considering your priorities at work, be sure na mas ok yung lilipatan mo than what you have now. just my opinion...

Pareho tayo ng dilemma. About resigning from work. Reason for staying sa work is money and security. At least after retiring, may pension pa rin. Aside from that, wala na. Reason for resigning is mag-alaga ng anak. Gusto na ni hubby na magfocus ako sa bata. Medyo lumalaking spoiled kasi. He can provide well naman, natatakot lang ako, what if biglang may mangyari sa kanya, wala ng magsupport samin at alam ko ang hirap pumasok ng work ngayon. :-(

Oh me ganito pala topic :D kasi ganitong ganito din nararamdaman ko ngayon, pa share po:

Ako nag ttrabaho sa province (2 hrs away lang naman sa Manila), kaso si Hubby sa Manila sya work, at ngaun mag start ng schooling, dun na din mag aaral si anak (prep pa lang naman)

Hindi rin ako basta maka alis sa work ko kasi sobrang lapit lang ng office location ko sa amin. Masaya ako sa lahat ng mga kasamahan ko, lalo na sa boss ko, saka perks na nakapag travel. saka malulungkot mga magulang ko pag nawala na tao sa bahay. kaso nga 4 years na din kami di magkasama ni husband, dahil ganun lang set up namin, ako nasa amin, sya nasa nanay nia. Uuwi

ilang beses na din nia ko pinaki usapan na sa Manila na lang ako maghanap ng trabaho, kaso naiisip ko pa lang na makikitira ako sa kanila, at polusyon sa Maynila, mag start ng panibagong trabaho na baka hindi ko magustuhan,,ayaw ko agad, Kaso nga magkahiwalay naman kami ng anak ko. Sana po may makapag paliwanag sa akin..

Been there, done that. Last year lang. I stayed with the company for almost two years for the reason na ilang tumbling lang from our house yung office, like isang tricycle lang. Isa lang ang question ko sa sarili ko before I finally decided to quit - "Do I see myself working here in the next 20 years and eventually retiring from here?" My answer was crystal clear - No.

Ang dami kasing factors eh and I eventually got burned out like kulang na lang iyakan ko every single day that I had to wake up and go to work.

Then like you, I was procrastinating and waiting for the right time to resign until inunahan na ako ng health ko. Ayun. I do miss certain people and the tawanan and the short commute. But do I have any regrets? No.

Basta think not once, not twice, not even thrice. Think harder than what you're doing. Think long term.

^thanks for inspiring word sis sugardrop at sa lahat ng nagadvice dito anyway push na push na ako magresign :) actually may initial interview na ako sa other company will try my best kesa naman wala kung di ako aalis sa comfort zone ko porket malapit sa bahay nothing will happen.

Like now kulang kulang na naman kami sa tao at hinatakan ako ng isa without notifying me :( i don't know why this company practice unprofessionally, naaawa ako sa maiiwan ko kaso i need to grow and we need to grow :) marami naman ako natutunan sa company nila but i think it's time to say bye bye na.

Agree ako with what they said, it does help to list the pros and cons and consider everything carefully kapag clear ang mind mo and hindi ka pagod or upset.  Mas makikita mo yung totoo kapag ganito.  It also helps to think about the future.  Katulad nga ng sabi mo, gusto mo mag-grow, and if you feel na hindi ka na nag-grogrow dito and wala nang chance na ma-remedy yan, that's one sign to leave.

Kasi kahit gaano pa kalapit sa bahay mo yang job mo or gaano mo pa kasundo yung officemates mo, ikaw din ang mahihirapan if you stay there.  Hindi naman ata maganda na magtrabaho ka sa job that bores you or stunts your growth at mag-stay there until you retire.  Understandable kung kailangan mo mag-stay sa ganyang trabaho dahil wala na talagang better option, but if merong mas magandang opportunity, I suggest you grab it.

Naiintindihan kita, ganyan din kasi yung nafeel ko sa last job ko.  May mga pangit na aspects like some unsavory people, etc., pero there were also a lot of people there that I really enjoyed working with and even consider my friends.  Ang tagal ko din sa company na yun and malapit lang siya sa bahay, so convenient ang commute.  But in the end, after considering everything, I realized na hindi na worth it mag-stay.  It may be scary sis, di natin alam kung ano mangyayari pag umalis ka diyan, but until you do, you won't find out.  Better na umalis ka while medyo okay pa ang lahat, wag mo na antayin na ma-burnout ka or ma-depress sa work.

I hope everything will turn out well for you, good luck :)

Share ko lang same dilemma..
Di rin ako makapagresign sa work ko ngayon sobrang naguguluhan at pabago bago isip ko. Last year ko pa plan mag resign.,naunahan na nga ako magresign ng mga iba kong ka officemate.
Ok naman yun work ko.. Anytime pede ako magabsent., ok din yun mga ka officemate ko. Petiks lang sa trabho.. Yun nga lang minsan nabobored nko., yun parang feeling ko di na ganun ka productive yun ginagawa ko., tapos parang wala naman ako natutunan na bago. Maliit din yun sahod kulang para samin ng anak ko.
 
Anyway, Iniisip ko kung resign muna tapos maghanap ng work, feeling ko kase  mas madali ma-hire kung available.  Pls. Help me i need your advice.

Ganyan din ako sis before ako nagresign sa previous job ko more than 2yrs ago. Tagal ko nagco-contemplate whether to resign or not kasi may anak din ako na nag-aaral at ginagastusan. I listed the pros and cons din at syempre mas maraming cons. During that time I'm only staying because of the paycheck and masaya ako sa workmates ko. Pero sobrang stress ako sa work mismo at pati na rin sa pagbyahe papunta sa workplace. Hinihila ko na lang ang self ko na pumasok everyday. I came to a point na umiiyak na ko kasi ayaw ko na talaga. Maswerte ka dahil petiks at no problem pagnag-absent. With my previous company kasi maski naka-confine ka na at naka-dextrose ipipilit pa na ihatid mo yung medcert mo, feeling nila joke na maysakit ka. Hindi sila makapag-antay na ibigay mo na lang pagpasok mo. Di makapaniwala na tumagal ako ng 2yrs sa kanila sa dami ng horror stories ko sa knila. Pero hindi ko naman sila ni-badmouth nun nag-apply ako sa iba.

Nung nakaipon ako ng enough na for 2mos worth of panggastos namin ng anak ko nagsubmit na ko ng resignation agad-agad bago pa magchange ang mind ko. Nagpray ako na sana tama yung ginawa ko and for guidance na din. Habang nirerender ko yung last 30 days ko nag-aapply na ko sa iba kaya bago pa matapos yung pagrerender ko inaantay ko na lang yung kontrata ko from my new employer and they were kind enough pa na pumayag na bigyan ako ng 1 month rest bago magstart sa kanila. I'm a very happy employee now. No regrets na lumipat ako and going 25mos na ko next month.

why don't you take a leave of absence instead of resigning. kasi kapag  leave of absence makakapag isip-isip ka pa  at makakabalik ka pa and most likely medyo mababago ang perception mo sa workplace mo kasi nakapagpahinga ka ng matagal. i had an officemate before while on leave went  on a job hunt to other companies...tapos nahirapan makahanap ng work e di balik sya sa work nya after her LOA.. ayon pagbalik mas naging appreciative sya sa job nya  na kinamumuhian nya  kasi na realize nya  ang hirap pala maghanap ng work ngayon. o siguro hindi pa napapanahon kaya ganoon. i told her try some other time baka hindi pa ito yung right time and luck mo.

I had the same situation on my previous work and I think I'm having it again now. If I were you girl tuloy mo na! :D look for a better job. Kasi if you stay I think wala na yung puso mo dyan baka makaapekto pa sa mga outputs mo.
