Like any other working person I did crib about my job or the odd pressure but while I cribbed - I enjoyed the cribbing - you know what I mean? I used to enjoy the importance of doing the job and being indispensible - it did wonders to my Ego too! But after Chutku and a lot of such cribbing later I realised that there was no longer that happiness associated with going to work. It felt like I was doing the same thing, I was doing for the past 7+ years and somewhere down the line I began to loose interest. Also, once I began to take on other responsibilities apart from just the techie stuff - I began to learn that there was so much more to the work! And I began to like doing that more than the techie stuff.
And then when I moved to this organisation, and after a lot of delibaration and discussion AND putting all my frustration out here on the blog, I have now moved! Moved out of the role I was so used to doing. Moved to what they call 'Enabling Functions'. How does it feel - Kind of "Fish out of water" at the moment. A new place, new desk, new people.Moved to non-client,non-technology role. Where I know there is a lot to learn though that kind of pressure might not exist. Im also still kind of feeling odd-because I dont need to meet the external clients, dont need to stay back to take calls, I can schedule my day as I want BUT there is also a sense of loss - that Im going to loose that 'Techie" tag and the opportunity to meet clients is like nill.
