My career has been based on confidentiality. There were no discussions in public about client's affairs or with other members of staff who were not directly involved with the client. Most things about clients were handled on a need to know basis.
There were several reasons for staying in that career for a period of time, such as access to learning, both technical and through training and the culture of the company. Yes there were drawbacks in that there were endless rules, timekeeping, getting things done on time was a factor of life, however the pluses outweighed the minuses.
part of any experience involves you.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, well there are many ideas/practices engaged in by that company which I will like to imitate should I have my own business.
One of the better ones is a staff breakfast where each person brings something and it costs the business nothing except time. Part of the enjoyment in that interaction was appreciation for one another, their generousity and willingness to share, the bonding of persons as in most instances we did not have a meal together except at Christmas so this was an interim form of bonding.
