I was no longer satisfied with my last job. The same repetitive tasks, no challenges, internal conflicts with a problematic employee, my senior colleague was a conspirator, I felt that my superior did not trust me, an eternal period of transition… So I started to stagnate after my 3rd year and I felt that I was no longer progressing. However, I stayed because I was part of the company's social club, I still had some ideas for activities to offer, I had good relations with my colleagues, and for job stability.

Computer work allows me to stimulate my brain as video games do. Although it remains a work of concentration, I feel less the need to "gamer" after a day of computer programming. So when my employment situation started to stagnate, I looked for other ways to compensate for the lack of challenges. I learned to cook, I started the gym to overcome other limits, I met women on a dating app, I learned the Java language, I looked at other job opportunities out of the corner of my eye, I was planning a trip this fall ...

The problem is, the Covid pandemic has caught up with me. My professional stagnation was felt and I was not sure how to proceed after my job loss. So I decided to go back to school in order to increase my knowledge and get a more satisfying job in IT. If I had continued the way I did, I probably should have settled for a junior position for the rest of my career, or almost. I want more than just a developer job.

I'm rediscovering mathematics and curiously, it stimulates my brain a bit as video games and programming do. There is still a long way to go, but I think it's a sign that I've made the right choice!

A very good question to which the young retiree will answer.

My answer is my vision of the degradation that I have observed during my 43 years of activity.

In 1974 the notion of good at work materialized by joy, a pleasure to go to work to meet young colleagues like me at the time and the old ones.

Mutual respect, mutual aid, no fuss. Good fun, hard work, and a lot of work.

I worked in the electronics industry and at the time orders were raining. Too many orders.

I was and we were fine. We respected the hierarchy and had no limit on overtime. 60 hours in the week were classic. Salary bonuses accordingly

Then, in the 1980s, new concepts arrived, such as time limits, quality, cadence, control, pointing, brief objectives, which had the effect of degrading the atmosphere.

The organization evolved for good and for worse and an atmosphere, good at work, began to weaken.

The coup de grace came with the first waves of dismissals in the 90s and pressure from management and management (I was an executive and I gave

In short, the good at work was fading.

The horror when IT appeared (all by email, no more relationships), compartmentalization and all the zero-defect concepts zero stock of PowerPoint statistics from sterile meetings no more increases, workstation analysis, versatility, etc.

The company had become a machine to crush the employee with the onset of burnout and work stoppages that follow.

The collective notion of good at work independently of me no longer existed.

After 34 years, the company closed and retrained.

I accompanied people far from employment and job seekers and all their stories lead to the same observation.

We are no longer good at our work because the human aspect no longer exists.

On the other hand to the question are you well retired, bin Yeaaaaaahhhhh

I can not complain. Happy, not at this point. Satisfied is enough. Well, I should consider myself happy to be satisfied with my job. It's a chance not to go back to work.

To be honest, I might be happy in my current job if I didn't have to wrestle and deal with some professional egos and/or some clumsy communication skills that aren't damn getting or giving information while building relationships. transparent to promote confidence.

I am dealing with people who need to set up a spy and/or whistleblower system to get information and people who want a diamond medal for having transmitted information to allow the service and structure to function effectively. AND, if we give information without waiting for a reward (on the contrary and instead of those who are waiting for a carrot to do so), well we are categorized as an immoral little spy.

Just thinking about it makes me goatish.

I find myself between the two, dealing with expectations so as not to have the feeling of putting aside my ethics while leaving myself some leeway to remain an effective professional for the sustainability of the systems on which I work.

As far as the money is concerned, I am pretty much happy and satisfied with my job. Though it becomes extremely hard sometimes and I miserably fail many times too, I don't want to give it up. My job comes with stress and works under pressure but now that it has been over a year, I am sort of learning how to manage everything at work.

Being a teacher is not an easy profession. It may look like it is - and I used to think this about it too - but it's not easy. However, what makes me enjoy most of it and not give it up is the students. I have a countless love for children. I can hang out with them at any time. So, they make my job easy. I get off early compared to 9-5 corporate jobs, which gives me enough time to focus on my other job. Hence, I am pretty satisfied with it right now. I may not be as satisfied and happy after one or two years, but for now, it's all good.

Uhm, not really! Some days back I came across this meme that said if you want to suck the fun out of a hobby, turn that into a job. And damn, could I relate or what. I am a content writer and I do everything but write, I mean I still love it and think that writing brings me a lot of power, etc. But when I say that, I don't mean writing about the composition of pet foods or gymnastics steps. So, since that has turned into a job for me, it has turned into responsibility a lot more than a passion that is driving me. Perhaps if I got a break, I would better be able to like my job and not cry at the thought of having work to do when I get back from university.
