CodeCanvas .Net Vijay shankar ganesh on everything (well, almost) tech

It's been more than 5 years since I got my first pay check, I just took the time to think though the experience I have gone through, the people I have met and the totally unexpected twists that have popped in my life over this past years. To the most part it has been very useful and interesting journey, if not anything just for the amount of knowledge that has been acquired is still worth it. I guess I am contempt and thankful in the way I had chosen and what the life has offered.

But, walking through the old memory lane and revisiting all the question that I had before 5 years, I think I have a very definitive answer for one question:

What will make me continue in a company of my work? Is it the company name / package / location or job title?

I thought I would get an answer for that within maybe 1 or 2 years, but I guess as usual my schedule estimate was bit off :). Well, about the question; in my personal opinion it is neither the company name or package or location or even the job title, but it the one person who represent the company to you. It maybe your immediate supervisor / manager, your department head, or technical advisor or the CEO. The only difference it makes to me if I continue in a company is determined by if I have a person who represents my company to me in a admirable way.

Tell me about your criteria to continue in a company?

I also agree with you .Only the team leader plays an important role.It's your personal experience and everyone has its own.

I think team leader plays the important role but in some other way he/she make people work right and that is the best thing that we want.

for me, it's personal relationship that makes a company. I agree with you that it is a person.. not the company. Some companies invest on their machines and equipments but not on competitive people.

I'm online searching for the answer to my question when all I get is the ability to buy the package from companies. I just want the grant Application. The SBA in my area apparently doesn't support grants. Can anyone help me out?

you are unhappy with the long-term prospects of a particular company or industry, it is better to get out sooner rather than later. Your savings can significantly diminish or vanish while undergoing a lengthy job application process, should you get laid off.

I am holding the same criteria with you. I am always attracted by those amiable people in the company. But then i realise that we are a team. That's the answer why we are held on the same string.

I think this is going to be a huge business. I enjoyed reading your posts because this type of business had never occured to me. Great article.

Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!

Well this is a nice one. I was just searching for some articles for my school homework. I was thinking that I will come across Wikipedia but I was simply shocked when your blog came first but now I understood that Google was right in placing your blog on the top.
