My resignation as IBMer

Good bye IBM-Maxis ...
  • A shocker ? A suprise ? Tender resignation during economy crisis ... yeah, i know that ... it is a big decision and I've been thinking bout it day and night for me to make this decision.
  • Finally, did submit my resignation letter to IBM HR on 10th April 2009.
  • Some of my colleagues msn me and asked me is this true ... I say 'yes'.
  • I can't formally make announcement to my team and my colleagues during that time cause there is some HR process required for me to do and approval needed from the Country Manager before my resignation takes effective.
  • After meeting with the Head of AMS (Maxis) this morning .... I got the green light. Thanks to Rajoo & Ricky for the offer but will stick to my decision.

Sorry for keeping it low profile ... but u all readers are the first to know this news from me before I will notify to the rest of my colleagues. My last day in IBM will be end of April and will be on leave from 24th April onwards.
  • Do wish me good luck in my new career path .... not sure will I succeed or failed out there.
  • Once again, for my colleagues reading this ... I am sad to leave my team, colleagues, OD gang, Wow Wow Team and the company I have been working for 9 years+. But I do request from you, do please feel happy for me that I am leaving for good and wish me success, ok!
  • Lastly, thanks to my 2 referees for their feedback and hard sell on me! (distraction, ...see u believe it o not)

Note: Just need a favour from you all, please do not ask me which company I am joining and what will I be doing. I will announce it after 1 or 2 months later.

cherlyn said...

All the best to you.

Rezal said...

Let me take a wild guess. Once you gotten all your money, bonus and esos shares by end of this month, I believe you will take a month break and will do own business instead, right?

Currently, there is no company out there can offer good salary and benefits to job seekers and is a big risk that you quit without a job or a backup plan.

Twilight Zone said...

During our great grandfather's era, loyalty was a must coz they would see to the employee's retirement and family needs. This is unheard of today when all robotic HR depts were born. The HR dept has no feelings, just follow the books! So don't be a nerd to show loyalty sometimes.

vialentino said...

lulu: thaks for ur salute...yeah, cant believe been underpaid for 9 years...just kidding.

ashley: hahaha...wah, u can read my mind ler...

chvoon: hope so....the road in front is unpredictable.

clement: no worries, will keep my 012, but for sure will MNP port out ler to save bill ler...yeah, HUATTT ah...

julie: wahliow...must buy lottery liow that u still online ler...hahaha...got any good job to intro to me a not....ok, u r no.6 voter n c u r rite a not....

cherlyn: thanks a lot....how is UK?

rezal: wow, wat a good assumption and prediction u made...i wish it will be true....for sure, job market is bad out there

tzone: yeah bro...agree with u on this....now ppl is working for money and not loyalty.
