If you are working in a company or a factory or anywhere else , can you tell me whether you are proud of the company? We would be proud of our school of our family, of our parents, of our children etc and the signs are visible. BUT [b]How can you identify if a fellow worker is proud of the company? What would be the traits and characteristics that signify this? Please share your views. [/b]

NO Sorry! But NO. Right now, NO! I'm just having a situation right now which makes me say NO and I'm sorry. How can I be proud of this organization with a totally twisted system! If only there was another place I could be, I would have left a long time ago. Sorry I shouldn't be ranting but I am, and it's just awful.

I am not working outside the home at the moment although I have spent many years in the workforce. To be honest with you I have never been employed by an organisation that I was particularly proud of. I always did my best on the job but I was not always treated or appreciated as I would have liked. I worked under a lot of pressure for little pay and my achievements were usually ignored whereas mistakes were generally highlighted. The field I was in was banking and I hated it but it was where my experience was so that made it tough to change fields. My writing course was the best thing I ever did, it may not be earning me a lot of money but at least I have changed occupations once and for all!

That was a bad experience Paula andI well understand how hard t is to be pressurised for work with inappropriate pay and to top it all , be without appreciation. Finally, job satisfaction becomes mroe important than money ebcause this gives us peace.Thanks for an excellent response.

Ya i am very proud to work for the organization in which i am presently serving.Being the only female in the whole organization,i get more attention and care.The staff is very good and cooperative which makes the environment very friendly and cordial. All my fellow members do not feel the same way.There are some dishonest employees also who always find ways and means to put you down. But i know how to tackle with such people.Just ignore them.

Though I was just working in my present company for 8 months now and that the entry-level salary I have was not that high, I am very satisfied here. Aside from being an international company, it also has a very good working environment and great benefits. I think I will work here for years. :)

Hmmmm. If they are loyal, and hard-working, and keeps the interest of the company on their number one list, then definitely they are proud of their company. Me on the other hand, I mean, the bank that I work for is on the top 3 local banks here in the Philippines, it's widely recognized as a stable bank, but honestly, as much as it is great from the outside view, from the inside it's totally different. They don't value their employees much, especially the rank and file, salararies are incredibly low, and benefits are also meager.. so I guess I'm not that proud of the organization that I work for, only because they don't take care of their most valuable asset which is their employees.

What you say is absoloutely true.If the organisation is not sensitive and friendly to employees how can that get their loyalty?And what is seen from the outside does not reflect the inner workings. Thanks a lot for the response.

hi kala, I feel proud to work in my organisation. Its well known Laptop manufacturing company. I feel proud because when they hired me, very less openings for my qualification based jobs. So they allowe me to join in their BPO and now i can shift to IT side. They are well known employee friendly concern among my friends. They'll understand the situations, will adjust our shift timings and make ourself refresh once in 6 months by planning for team outing, team lunch/dinner like that. And also yearly 10 to 15 days leave mandatory. I mean whole concern employees will enjoy the holiday. not only for enjoyment i like this organization. There is good career growth too :)

I cannot think of anyone being proud of the company or factory for which he is working in this era of money chasing .Any company which offers abetter salary the wokers would just jump to it without any second thought .He can never be grateful however much the company has done for him .Even the servant maids or the drivers react in the same way .Wecan easily bribe them to our with an increased salary undoubtedly.

THis may be true in the case of servants and lowlevel labourers where they are not paid huge sums. WHen the earnings run in thousands then the jump may not be as significant as it were in the lower strata. HEre the net amount accruing to oneslef after tax deductions may not be too different. In this case pride in a company may play a part.

I can say I'm proud of the organization I work for today. They really value their employees and they give good benefits as well. You can that an employee is proud of their company if they are saying good things about it, promotes it to other people, and defends it when someone tries to smear it's image.

Not any more! LOL. In every place I have ever worked there were some things to be proud of and some things to sweep under the carpet, metaphorically speaking. But if I wasn't proud of the place to some extend I would go seek a different organization to work for...or start my own. I don't think it is healthy to work in an emotionally toxic place.
