It has been a long time I haven’t done any full English writing about my life and thinking since I left UK. ok! Let’s practice English! And please help me to correct errors…
Working for about one month, I’ve been getting used to the life and job here, even though I still feel difficult to grasp the preferences of the new boss. And I’m also trying hard to catch up with those young designers with a new technique of sketching. However, there are some advantages compare with my former job.
First of all, the work is professional and efficient. The expertise of the team is matured, the discussion between related staffs always focus on the critical point. People waste no time on non-professional communication. Secondly, clear task. The goal is always to show the concept of the value of innovation. You don’t have to worry too much about the engineering problems in the manufacturing process afterward. Occasional overtime workings are because of the expectation of improving the efforts of value.
We don’t have many team members, most of them are young. It’s wonderful that we have a tacit understanding, consensus and well teamwork. I feel quite pleasant and harmonious to get along with those young guys, and far-far away from the abuses of vicious struggles. Furthermore, working for a famous brand brings me the feeling of recognition and belonging, although it maybe isn’t directly related to. Certainly, there will be a perfect room to grow and for improvement.
Of course, new job also along with some disadvantages… Not only far from hometown, apart from family, but also the life needs adaptation undoubtedly. And for the confidential reasons, the work process don’t quite as convenient as usual, you cannot carry a smart phone into studio for instance. Each project is the competition between the international studios. Therefore the criteria of the boss are rather high. He is very strict and has imposing manner that makes people not easy to get close to him. In addition, Japan’s corporate style is very cautious, consequently the foreigners is not easy to enter the core of the organization, likewise it’s not easy to get in-depth learning of management knowledge, or to understand the whole picture of project operation in this condition.
In conclusion, for my situation, I think the advantages still outweigh the disadvantages, and future career path is extending. Finally, I bought a folding bike as a transport to keep the strong passion and keep moving on. Wish me luck 🙂
