What are the best lessons you have learnt in Corporate World?

I have total IT experience of 5.8 years and worked for 2 companies. I have following lessons from my experience which I want share:

  • NO RULE TO GIVE HIKE EVERY YEAR
    Most of the employees expect hike every year but one has to remember that there is no rule saying company should provide hike every year.

    this expectation hurts or disappoints most of the employees in an organisation. I would suggest everyone to keep up their good work and learn new things.

  • COMPANY RULES & POLICIES
    The very first thing everyone must do as soon as they on-board to company is explore and get to know more about Company and it rules, regulations, benefits, policies. It helps you very much to go with company in good manner.

  • POLITICS EXISTS EVERYWHERE
    The common thing to know is "Politics Exists Everywhere" and "Company is One place". I would call it as kind of favor or good relationship between two people.

  • I remember one of the quote by my inspiration Dr.APJ Sir - "Love your job but don't love your company, because you may not know when your company stops loving you."(Read it twice). I suggest everyone to follow this and always have a backup plan.

  • One of valuable suggestion from my ex-manager is “spend atleast one hour for yourself (read articles, learn new technologies etc) out of 9 business hours”. Thanks to Manager and I follow.

  • LIFE DOESN'T GET BETTER BY CHANCE, IT'S GET BETTER BY CHANGE
    Change is always required to grow both financially and technically. Try to change company if not, atleast applications/accounts within the Company. It helps in exploring many things.

  • NEVER LOOK STRESSED/DISAPPOINTED
    Never get disappointed because of your appraisal, performance or hike. It is just a number and you have wide market opened.

  • HEALTH IS WEALTH
    Have your work-life balance. Keep time for your family, exercise daily or do yoga, walk as much as possible, keep a habit of some stretching exercise at your desk, close your eyes for 2-3 mins for every hour. Try to take steps and avoid lift.

  • Try to automate your regular work so that you can find free time to learn new things and enhance your skills. Assign easy and small work to your juniors/sub-ordinates. Your teaching must be limited to team members.

  • NEVER SHARE YOUR CREDENTIALS
    Never share any of your passwords with your colleagues at work place which may lead to company policy violations or can be misused.

  • Participate in all company parties and outings which connects you more with your colleagues.

  • Involve in clubs like dance, music, biking or conducting floor events etc where you get an opportunity to showcase yourself and get connected to people.

  • Never hesitate and Be bold to talk to anyone. Be bold to take any risks.

    Hope this article provided you very useful tips and knowledge. ALL THE BEST!!!
