The upside and downside of working for a Large corporate

by on Mar.17, 2012, under General

Working for a large corporate as I do, has many upsides

  • Good Pay
  • Great flexibility
  • Agile/home working
  • Great Leave entitlement
  • I also get free broadband
  • and in this case a corporate that does not do compulsory redundancy

However there are some downsides too (driven by trying to maintain shareholder value)

  • Many many business transformations (re-orgs)
  • Many Cost reduction challenge/initiatives
  • with re-orgs & cost come staff ?head count challenges

Did I mention they don’t do compulsory redundancy. well that is one saving grace

So as of 10th April i am classed as a redployee, in the “transition centre” where I still get paid for looking for an internal post, re-training is available, so I could take the opportunity to gain some decent Cisco, Oracle or Linux skills. Time will tell.

On the plus side, looking forward to a NEW challenge and NOT collecting a P45….
