Beautiful varnish that covers the ugly. A painful experience.

2,62

Arbeitsatmosphäre

Overall a good work atmosphere. But a bad relationship with the person you are the most in contact with is enough to make your life miserable at work.

Vorgesetztenverhalten

I got blatent unrealistic expecations.
Attempting to solve a conflict or an issue is met with silence, denial, or lies
I was pressured to be a square when I was a round
Other perspectives are ignored and shut down

Kollegenzusammenhalt

If you ask for feedback, you will get authentic feedback from most of the people. But not getting any clue about what may have done wrong that could justify receiving (often subtle) aggressivity is not acceptable.

Interessante Aufgaben

Not being allowed to play my role as Business Analyst makes the work much less interesting.

Kommunikation

There are communication standards that are good, and they are experimented. But there is some opacity where you quickly understand that you would not get any clarity, even if you need this clarity to do your job.

Umgang mit älteren Kollegen

In the past, there were more congratulations for people from being faithful for a long time

Karriere / Weiterbildung

Having no former experience in that position, I spend too much time not knowing what I don't know, due to lack of helpful feedback and support. When realizing that I need external help and getting this external help, I realized how much I have been prevented in my development by not being allowed to play my role as Business Analyst. After being prevented to correctly do my job, I got blame for project failures, and when contesting the blame, got blatant irrealistic expectations that I should have met, then heard the lie that such expectations were never set on me.

There was simply no future for me there.

Gehalt / Sozialleistungen

Low salary because of low performance. Low performance because of opacity, confusion, impediments on properly doing your job and long-lasting internal issues. Opacity to protect what???

Arbeitsbedingungen

Working in a co-working space is nice, with seeing more people than those in your very small office

Umwelt- / Sozialbewusstsein

Fair trade software company

Work-Life-Balance

Good flexibility with working hours, and with taking holidays

Great vision of impacting people's live in Cambodia, I am sure that it helped a lot of people. But my experience was of a varnish on top of a different reality. More concerns for saving face than being authentic.

Verbesserungsvorschläge

  • Stop turning a blind eye or excusing the unacceptable. Have the courage to face and deal with internal and personal issues. Make your professed culture to be a reality, with the management showing the example, or at least have the honesty not to profess one thing when the reality is the opposite covered with a varnish. Stop saying beautiful words but take real actions. Be authentic rather than worrying no deeper than on your image. I am concerned that a new employee may be hired and face the same situation because the issues weren't dealt.

Pro

I really appreciated to learn a bit of a new culture and getting to know the people from the cambodian office, although it was a pity to have little personal contacts due to the distance.
At the end of my mandate there was coaching sessions offered and they have been really helpful to me, although the short amount of time.
Great vision of impacting people's live in Cambodia, I am sure that it helped a lot of people.

Contra

It starts with everything looking nice and blue, but as soon as you raise internal issues or if you are perceived as asking too much questions, even if all you want is to just do your job, this is what you get: beautiful words with no real actions behind, unintelligible speechs, denial, lies, passive-agressive communication, silence, confusion, blame-shifting, no concerns on the issue but on keeping the image intact, getting shut down, discouragement for raising any further issue or for asking any question that may touch a sensible point (without knowing precisely what).
