I was recently asked by a student from my alma mater about the pros and cons of working in tech. I thought it was a really excellent question - we often advertise the highlights of our industry to young people who are interested, but rarely share the downsides!
So, I'd love to hear from you - what are some of the pros AND cons of the automotive industry that you would share with anyone who is considering it for their own career?
Can't wait to hear your answers :). Happy Monday!
Such a good list!! Thank you @Sebastian Tschörner . Updating 50 yr old processes sounds exciting yet daunting - what do you think is the lowest hanging fruit in terms of modernizing?
From IT perspective, the lowest hanging fruits are already cut and served on a plate. We have most of the solutions ready to be used, we only have to convince the users to taste them. Still there are users munching on their dry Excels, suspiciously looking at a ready to use Jira, Confluence or Microsoft Teams.
From a people or process perspective, the modernization is a culture change and you can pick any initiative or strategy to change the culture. It could work, or it could not work, but surely none of them could be considered a "low hanging fruit".
Haha I love how the lowest hanging fruits are already sliced and presented nicely, but yet you need to convince users to taste them :).
Who would choose a dry and dusty excel over a nice slab of mango?!
Great list from @Sebastian Tschörner and I fully agree.
Right now, the whole automotive industry is under massive pressure and a lot of those benefits are not only questioned but cut rigorously. Despite the fact that this kind of action has been overdue in relation to other industries it's a rough change.
So it feels anything what has been missed in the last decade is about to be catched up in a fraction of time. Feels like a reeeeally stressful fast-forward.
And to me unfortunately any of those culture initiatives are comdemned to fail unless they change organisational structures ...
A few days ago, I posted a comment saying that the Tech industry and automotive industry is the best one to work in. But then I asked some of my friends that are working in the same industry. And I found out that they had a bad start and still having issues. You got to understand that the problem is not with the Payout or salary, it's because of other factors like work pressure and office politics. Source: ExactlyHowLong
From a people or process standpoint, modernization is a cultural shift, and any effort or technique may be used to transform the culture. It may work or it could not work, but none of them could be called "low hanging fruit." In short, it depends upon the person who's working in this industry. You can read more about it here.
