Top or Bottom?
Milch: Bro! For now nakapagdecide na ako na mascomfortable ako as bottom than maging top
Friend: Hmm talaga? Eh sayang naman yung opportunity. At palalagapasin mo pa?
Milch: Oo nga eh,. parang mas-ok naman ako sa bottom position
THE REAL STORY:
I was offered a managerial position by our company, In short a promotion. Because one of our managers will be resigning soon.
It took me days to think, If I will accept the promotion or not. Kasi sa totoo lang if, I say YES then my decision can either make or break me. Kasi yung mangerial position na yan, eh mahirap na trabaho. In fact mga 7 employees na ang dumaan sa position na yan at nagresign sila lahat, at di nakatagal. The position requires you to travel all around the Philippines (di ako mahilig magtravel lalo na sa mga provinces or away from the city) and sometimes I may travel abroad din especially sa Asian countries. And I if I travel a lot, I will miss a lot of things like my computer, the blogs that I'm reading, my dvd collection, going to the gym, blogging and interacting with my friends and cyberfriends, etc. And worst of all, Managers don't have overtime pay.
Based naman sa salary may increase nga, pero ang salary na yun. I can earn it easily, if I ever decided to go back to a callcenter company.
So its really hard to be on the top position kasi masmaraming pressure, and as a manager, ikaw ang unang mapapagalitan ng superiors, if ever may nagkamali sa mga taong under sa yo. Unlike yung mga nasa bottom position na if ever they did something wrong then they can point their fingers to their managers bwahaha
Di naman sa wala akong ambition na tumaas ang position ko sa company namin. But the only thing that is most important to me, is that I'm happy with my work. Because before when I was working sa callcenter, My salary is really big, but the paycheck was not worth it. Because I suffered so much pressure and mental anguish sa work.
Since I refused the position, and they decided to hire a new employee, instead.
