Sometimes, it really brings out who you are when you step out and say "I quit being ...". And so, that was a decision I made two weeks ago. I wasn't happy with how things were done inappropriately. It makes my 4 years degree became wasted. I am in a situation, where I am not capable to make a significant change.
There were obstruction again and again & without management support, I learned that things doesn't function as it would with support. Things happened at randoms, creating undocumented back logs that are virtually untraceable as there is no commitment to create a proper system. There were just one word "Create" if needed.
Truthfully saying how painful it was in such a situation, to see and work with something I knew against everything I learned of. And still, there were such practices and others that are committed to such practices.
I left and now. I am not feeling the pain. I am relieved even though there are much more projects on my table because I see the difference I can make.
It is always hard to say "I am done" because what you never knew what you face the next moment. However, it is a call that we need to make to move on in our life. I choose to follow what I think it is right. It might be lots of things that came piling on my table and getting them correctly takes more time. It is a trade that I make to uphold my belief. And for the benefit of my previous employer. I like to give that chance to someone else that deserve the position and has the capability to straighten things up.
