I completely disagree that you shouldn't talk to Management about your study or your future Career Plans if they are not within the business. I have worked for 2 Global progressive technology companies who support that Management is there to get the most out of their teams while they have them. They play a part of that Career development and only a very simple minded Manager (or organisation) would think they can keep each high quality talent that walks into their business forever. Quality talent does not work this way. It takes a very ignorant organisation that would behave in a dismissive manner of someone building their own career. Support of this (as long as it is not cutting into their current work efficiency) is a much better attribute for an organisation to have.
@Alice1982 I suspect your entire comment was fictional. Either that or you were laid off and never figured out why.
@HannoPhoenicia @Alice1982 I have to agree with Alive1982. If your company is paying you 40 or 50k per year and your manager thinks you're going to stay with them forever, that manager isn't very good at his/her job. A good manager shouldn't even want an employee who's that easily satisfied. My boss loves me, but knows he can't afford to keep me for more than a couple of years. He understands. That's what happens when you have good employees.
ouch I would say it looks like Hanno has a giant chip on their shoulder in regards to a previous experience involving an old co-worker. Too bad it's completely blinded you to the point Mitch was trying to make in regards to career development. The only thing worse then the type of person you tried to passively aggressive explain are people like yourself thinking they are enlightened in some way and that by attempting to insult some stranger they will somehow educate others.
@Mitch@HannoPhoenicia@Alice1982; "My boss loves me, but knows he can't afford to keep me for more than a
couple of years. He understands". Hmm, let me guess; your co-workers see you as a political player and suck up, possibly the office back stabber. You have an over-confidence in your perceived power over your boss.Your co-workers know this and resent it but your boss hasn't figured it out yet (but will).
You probably have a lot of job turn-over in your past when people got wise to you. In my career, from which I retired a few years ago in my early 60s and lasted for almost 40 years, I came across scores of people like you. Sometimes they moved up in the system and became abusive bosses. Usually they went down in flames.
Odd that you used specific figures as to what a person should make or see as a bad salary. Salary averages vary greatly within an organization, between different positions and from state to state. I think that was an attempt to boast about how "valuable" you are. Doubtless that's why you've had to change jobs so often.
I expect if you respond, you'll probably angrily confront me by telling me I'm wrong, you're super successful and I know nothing about you, etc. However, I suspect I hit it right in more than half of my statements.
