Some people work for the same organization all their working life. Others think that it is better to work for different organizations.
Discuss both these point of views and give your opinion.
Same organization: Comfort level, Trust with management, expert in field, chances of promotion; complacency in work, limited exposure, unskilled, biased views – liability, no growth
Different organizations: Initial struggle, expert in field, better exposure, quick opportunities, Skills enhancement, chances of promotion; confused work cultures, loss of confidence
In today’s ever-changing world some people seek comfort in working with same organization for lifetime while, others ambitiously jump from one job to another. Both options have their unique offerings which are fervently debated by modern day employees. In my opinion, working for different organizations is a challenge, if accepted can open doors to exciting career with multiple opportunities.
They say “Change is the only constant”. Change in jobs, poses seemingly insurmountable hurdles, initially in the career as one must start new assignment with a clean slate and prove the worth each time. If each time these shifts in organizations are approached as opportunities, new doors open in terms of betterment of skills, expansion of network and exposure to multiple cultures. With the progress in the career all these additions to professional profile makes Resume’ indispensable. Agreed that, this strategy takes time, if planned well, it can be an assured way to launch a successful career.
However, few people doubt the strategy. Doomsayers predict the failure even before start of the career and advice not to change organization. They predict fruitful relations with Senior Management because of the mutual trust which will sow the seeds of professional growth for the person in same organization. At the same time they must answer few questions: What if one does not get international experience? What if the opportunities are lost because of seniority? What if ego clashes stop your career growth?
After contemplating both sides career path through different organizations can take a person at zenith where he may evolve as well rounded personality. On contrary, being in same organization poses more hurdles than opportunities with limited exposure. As a long term strategy it is always a better option to work for different organizations.
Fervently: having great warmth, felling or intensity, insurmountable: problem which is almost impossible to solve, indispensible: very important, doomsayers: one who predicts disasters all the time, contemplating: thinking thoroughly about both sides about a topic, zenith: peak of the career
