This has been my home since late March and tomorrow it will end.
The hotel itself hasn’t been bad, nice actually, but coming back to the otherwise empty room night after night has worn thin as well.
Have no idea if the ghetto company will do an exit interview with me tomorrow or not. Frankly, I’d just a soon pack up my belongings and exit. But ……as I’ve had a nice shot of Talisker Scotch……
- Clean out the server. It has way too many personal photographs, vid clips and music files, which take up space and slows performance down.
- Treat your workers as partners, treat then with respect and you might see a more motivated workforce with less turnover and fewer product quality problems.
- Likewise let them/make them take some ownership of the jobs they do, instead of just telling them to follow the book.
- Get rid of the antiquated and pointless, petty rules about what one can and cannot do at one’s desk. We are adults, not children.
- Don’t hire another full-time translator. You are wasting your money and another person’s time. Having gone through, including me 4 of them since 2007 ought to tell you something. Find someone local you can outsource any translation overflow to.
- Last, send the current Japanese head of the company packing as soon as you can; he appears to be the source of many of the ghetto company’s problems.
