There are many reasons why I left TCS and one of them is because it was my first company and I wanted to know how it is to work in a completely different environment. It was a very scary decision at that time but looking at the possibilities and opportunities of today I believe it was worth it.
While working in one environment for a long time we tend to feel that the world around us is the actual world. However the world that we see is very different from the world other people see and there are a lot of things that we don’t know. There are innumerable possibilities and opportunities everywhere and unless we get out of our comfort zone we wouldn’t know anything about it.
The biggest drawback of a desk job specifically in IT industry is that we tend to interact with a very small number of people, I mean really small and they are very nice people but the idea of interacting only with a fraction of people is not exciting to me.
I believe life can be more fulfilling if we interact with more people and add value to their lives in some ways, it’s difficult but possible.
