Even if you don’t really care for the recognition, it can be nice to occasionally be recognized. However, what if you do excellent work and nobody notices it? Even worse, the organization doesn’t really appreciate how well the project turned out. It might be time to find someplace that WILL appreciate your effort.
The Organization Has Mission Creep
Sometimes it can happen slowly, but eventually it can become apparent that your organization no longer values the things that attracted you to them to begin with. Maybe there’s a dramatic leadership change or the organization gradually changes its goals. While change can be a good thing, it might not be for you if you find your part of the company on the outside looking in. You might find a more appreciative organization elsewhere.
