This is really just a rant!
One of my co-workers said they were going to go home and write something on what Pay and Progression has done for them. So I thought I'd write a few comments as well. Pay and Progression now says no one can stay in a role longer than 4 years. I've been in my current role and feel more than ready to do something new. I'm not learning anything at this point so to do something new and learn again would be welcome. Unfortunately, having applied for a new role I was told that I can't leave at least for the next six months. My fear is that after six months all the roles coming up in my pay level will be filled and I'll be homeless. Sure the rating system worked in my favour and I was rated a 1 or Top Performer but I can't take that to the bank. I really want to continue to work my hardest and give it my best and all that crap but I'm starting to get jaded like all those around me. One of the joys of working for one of the largest corporations in the world.
