First, develop in the workplace

Development in the workplace should be the choice of most people. To achieve life's development by joining the company.

We can often see a lot of so-called "career planning", but most of the career planning is nothing but the human resources, and the actual situation is very different. In my life experience, I spent 18 years or so in the company. I have different ways of playing in banks, small companies, big companies, private companies, foreign companies, traditional IT companies, Internet companies, and different companies. Culture, my experience is quite rich, but it is not particularly successful, here only share some of my experience in the workplace (not necessarily right, for reference only).

1, go to top companies

One goal of going to a top company is to expand the possibilities of your Leadership range .

Because the gap between the company and the company is not small, even if you are a backbone in the low-end company, but in the high-end company may be just a regular employee (just like the main force of the Chinese football team to the Premier League may not be selected). So, in the workplace, if you want to maximize your personal value, you must go to a top company. Because there are very good working methods and scenes in top companies, this is not something that can be read or exchanged. This is a must-have experience. Therefore, the skills that are at the top of the company, the broad horizons, are usually much more than the low-end companies.

In addition, each company's work level is mutually benchmarked, for example: Ali's P number corresponds to Baidu's T. The position of first-line companies in China is still quite the same, but if it is compared with foreign first-tier companies, there will be a gap, and the gap is still very large. For example, a senior engineer at Google or Facebook may correspond to Ali's P8/P9 or even higher.

Yes, for the workplace, if you are the backbone of the top companies, then you go to the low-end companies, there is a great chance to become their executives and core. Just as you have been a technical backbone for three or five years on Facebook, the probability of you becoming a senior executive at BAT is very large. Conversely, if you graduated and went to BAT to become a screw and spend your youth in working overtime every day, the probability that you can become a BAT executive for ten years may be very low.

2, go to a real startup company

Going to top companies and going to startups does not conflict at some point. However, what I want to say here is that a person with strong technical skills may be buried in a large company. Because the big company’s business is successful,

Successful companies are not a problem in recruiting a variety of senior technical talents, so you are less than one, and you are not much.

Successful companies have completed their entire technical system, and Legacy has a lot of problems, so there is little room for you to play.

Successful companies are more likely to want a stable system, stability will inevitably lead to conservative, while conservative will produce unsatisfactory.

Therefore, for middle- and high-level talents, the personal value that can be generated in a large company may be far less than that of an entrepreneurial company that seeks to be thirsty, has no burdens, can exercise, and is relatively more flexible and free.

However, going to a startup requires careful selection and evaluation. There are many uncertainties in the startup, and the factors of the founder are too great. Therefore, you need to be careful about the founders and their business. The ideas and ideas are almost the same. Better work together.

A lot of startups are not really startups. They have a lot of luck and profit-taking. They have to be careful. Because that's not a real startup.

3. The stage of development of a career

First of all, there is an indisputable fact that the whole society will hand over the most important work to this group of people around the age of 30. In other words, this group of people around the age of 30 is the backbone of this society.

So this is an opportunity! If you have a Leadership, you will be able to catch up with this opportunity during this time period - the company and the leadership will trust you and have high hopes and give you important teams and work.

Therefore, your 30 to 40 years old has become a career development period, that is, your career rises. If you don't catch up until the age of 40, then your career will be like this, and the old people are a minority.

In the upswing of your career, you need more soft skills, such as:

  1. Ability to lead product and business development
  2. Ability to promote your favorite culture
  3. The ability of project management - in the task, the time is tight
  4. Ability to communicate and persuade others
  5. Ability to resolve conflicts
  6. Management and development team capabilities

Responding to emergency response capabilities

In addition, you have to understand a few cold facts in the workplace:

You start to care about and deal with complex personnel . Especially in large companies, a large number of people are ass to decide their heads, the interests are complex, the goals are inconsistent, and everyone has different ideas. This time is no longer talk is cheap, show me the code! Instead, code is cheap, talk is the matter. You need to spend a lot of time thinking and observing people of all kinds. It takes a lot of effort to get through the different people, instead of spending time creating something of value.

You have to start learning to use various political means . Office politics is inevitable, the bigger the company, the heavier the company. Since you started to become a leader of the line, you have become a "not a person inside and outside" role, and need to be between subordinates and leaders, employees and companies. Then your level is getting higher and higher, you need to use more political means, you will learn to judge the time of the team, learn to cater to the staff and leadership, learn to speak in the language of the official, learn to be a moment, learn to compromise And exchange, learn to swallow, learn to express yourself at the right time, learn to be shocked, learn to hide yourself, even you will lose yourself, and begin to learn some thick black, such as having to swear at the right time Knife... you may become a person you hate

It sounds really boring, so you now understand why the tops are looking very busy and tired, and they can't find time to care about the details, because they are more about coordinating the entire organization and system to work. Even have to go around, all kinds of games, no way, this is a necessary thing in the workplace! Does it sound like human beings are stupid? This is really no way. If you don't want or don't have the ability to play these things, then you need to go to a company that can make technicians feel at ease. I have seen companies like this in Microsoft, Google, Amazon or some startups. There are also professional growth lines for the growth of technicians in large domestic companies, but to be honest, on the surface, it seems to be a promotion line for people to concentrate on technology, but it is actually a management position.

Therefore, there are two ways for a technician to stay in the workplace – to be a real technology company to become a technology-focused person or to become a professional manager .
