is this workplace's culture of bullying so bad that even after miwashi left there's still a need to make him look bad? You sound like his boss, judging from the way you think. I don't think he's your problem any more so why don't you keep to the topic of progression instead of taking pot shots at him anonymously?

Or perhaps, you feel that something he said rings true and you see a need to do damage control through character assassination?

Sounds like a certain party we know.. o_o

if he's happy after leaving ur org shouldn't u be happy for him too? U sound petty. Zzzz. Did he offend u while he worked there? Perhaps offending hr is very dangerous after all hr has many unethical people who breach confidential too

Injuring someone's reputation on an individual level can be a civil offence, I guess? We may be outsiders in this forum but if people from that ministry catch wind it may escalate. If someone with too much free time decides to CSI anonymous out, this should be fun. I'll put my coins on it being someone from the HR dept.

Did anyone manage to find out who anonymous is? If this is a gov body, I really want to see which one it is! I want to put a name to a place where HR staff post on a public forum about their ex-employees!

Miss you and your work drama Miwash!

Wow.. so much interests in this thread!

Btw, saw some career openings in Nparks. Do they pay well for mid career application? eg. 5-8 years work experiences? With NS

While the trials and tribulations he related are largely accurate, they only present the story from his perspective:

The job he held while he was at "that grasscutting organization" was never really suitable for him anyway - the differences in his character and that of the rest of his peers were too great. He was good and dazzlingly displayed that expertise in a few fields (to the extent that he was publicly named and praised for his deliverable), but that was not enough to overcome the other requirements of the job - specifically that "can-do" attitude that comes with the multi-disciplinary aspect of jobs at "that grasscutting organization" these days - its definitely a lot more than just grasscutting! Those of you in the government or civil service should know of the "people developer" aspect and the intent to add value to each employee, but when a staff insists on only doing what he or she is good at, and refuses or fails to see the point of being trained for something else, that staff has rather little future relevance in the organization.

He is, at best, a useful tool.

The lesson to be learned here, is that you have to be adaptable, be prepared to be move out of your comfort zone, or step your game up, several notches, if you wish to enjoy success in your career. Otherwise, you have to be really, really discerning in choosing your job, or be a real genius at your specialities and continue to dazzle. If you continue to produce the same things six years after your hire, and attempts to grow your skill set are met with sour and dour unwillingness, your boss will simply move on to someone else more eager, and will take on more.
This is rubbish. If miwashi were really useless, miwashi's boss would only be too interested to dump the problem to others by letting miwashi transfer to another department so that can bring in a more useful person instead. The fact that the boss neither fights for miwashi's promotion nor lets miwashi transfer departments shows that the boss is cunning, sly and frankly, not fit to be a boss - here's looking at the senior management who let this happen in the first place.

But as with public service, senior management will never take action against middle management, because it means they have to admit they made a mistake in promoting the wrong people to be middle management in the first place. Senior management will just keep quiet and hope that nothing happens on their watch till they retire or transfer out.
