Ask the Alumnus Employees

09 Dec

Why its that no company refer their alumnus employees to the person who are seeking job? All companies want to know almost everything about the people who are applying for job. In fact they carry background checks. But once you are in, you experience politics, this and that which spoils your work and mind.

This 2013 was really turbulent for me. A deal with two companies turned sour. I found internal stuff to be unbearable and all were hidden between some bureaucratic stuff and stupid certification. One company even told developers to fill in time sheets! They could not differentiate between mechanical content development, their main business and coding.

I have learned one thing. If you seek contract or job from any company don’t believe the company. The company may show growth, optimistic forecast, a great technical team. But remember all are shrouded in a cloak you can’t see. If you get in expecting a decent work place you will be fooled.

To know about a company, goto  facebook or linked in, seek the company employees, better people who had worked there, message them and know about it. Ask the H.R why particular employee went out even though the company claims to be THE HEAVEN for work. With the H.R’s statement, cross reference with the employees weather the H.R did a diplomatic talk or a true stuff.

And one thing, don’t walk into a place expecting big buck raise. Salary is one thing, if you are talented you will be hired, so don’t worry about it, look for a good work place. Unfortunately no company has a open policy to let their employees to talk about the internal stuff in the external world. Employees had to quit to do so. That sucks, that ain’t democracy, that ain’t freedom.

Letting out secret is one thing, but criticizing about work culture in public domain must be allowed and bosses should be able to take on negative tweets against them in a sportive manner. Wonder when the people having power and money will change? Will they or there must brew a revolution?
