A journey to remember

Six Years After EY

Posted on: April 1, 2017

Kemarin sore, mantan senior gue di EY dulu ceritanya upload gambar yang di-tag ke gue via Path. Tertulis di dalam gambar: “Whenever you join, however long you stay, the exceptional experience of EY will last a lifetime.” 

Posting itu mengingatkan gue bahwa bulan Apil tahun ini, sudah genap 6 tahun sejak gue memutuskan untuk resign dari EY. Dan memang benar, pernah bekerja untuk EY, meski hanya 2 tahun 8 bulan, sudah jadi pengalaman tersendiri  yang tidak terlupakan buat gue. Andai saja gue ngerasa cocok dengan profesi sebagai auditor, maka kemungkinan besar, gue masih tetap bekerja di EY hingga hari ini.

Apa yang membuat EY begitu berkesan buat gue?

Beda orang tentu bisa beda juga jawabannya, tapi buat gue, working environment di EY tetap yang terbaik yang pernah gue rasakan. Nyaris tidak ada office politic, hubungan yang erat dengan hampir semua orang di dalam tim, belajar bareng-bareng, lembur bareng-bareng, curhat, joking, dan ngobrol dari satu topik acak ke topik lainnya. 

Tidak pernah selama gue kerja di EY terpikir untuk resign karena tekanannya, stresnya, atau capeknya. Ada pressure, tapi terasa lebih manageable. Segala hal buruk yang pernah gue alami di sana terasa lebih mudah untuk dilewati, dan waktu itu, gue punya keyakinan yang sangat kuat bahwa apapun yang terjadi, gue tidak akan harus melewatinya sendirian. Keyakinan seperti itu, kenyataannya, tidak selalu mudah ditemukan di lingkungan kerja lain pada umumnya.

Tidak pernah pula selama di EY gue membenci rekan kerja sampai terasa ke ubun-ubun. Ada konflik, ada drama, tapi tidak seberapa. Tidak pernah ada cerita rekan kerja bermuka dua, tidak pernah pula gue merasa ada rekan kerja yang diam-diam berusaha menjatuhkan karier gue. Membangun pertemanan di dunia kerja tidak pernah terasa sulit selama hampir tiga tahun bekerja di EY.

Satu hal lagi yang paling gue sukai dari EY adalah people development-nya. Gue tidak pernah harus pusing memikirkan training untuk gue dan tim gue karena semuanya sudah disiapkan oleh EY. Benar-benar terima beres saja! Enggak perlu cari-cari sendiri, daftar sendiri, dan enggak perlu pusing dengan budget-nya segala, hehehehe.

Jika akhirnya gue tetap memutuskan untuk resign dari EY, hal itu murni karena gue merasa bosan. Tidak ada yang salah dari pekerjaan gue di sana, hanya saja sayangnya, profesi auditor memang tidak terasa tepat buat gue. Bukan profesi yang tercipta buat gue. Gue tidak menyesal resign dari EY, tapi gue juga tidak menyesal pernah jadi bagian dari EY.

Finally, the greatest part of EY is that I am not who I am today without my tenure in that one great company. Every chance I got, every achievement I earned, all of that was begun with all the things I learned at Ernst & Young.

If you ask me how much I would recommend EY, the answer is definitely 5 out of 5.

It’s very important to feel content about our own life. No matter how hard we try, the truth is, we will NEVER get EVERYTHING we want to have in life. I want to have more curves, I want to have a pair of cheekbones and a chin like a supermodel, I want to be married at 30 years old, I want to be a Math expert, I want so many things in life and some of them are just some mission impossible. It’s true that I’m a go getter, but I simply have no time nor resource to pursue everything I want in life. There are some things that I need to live with it probably for the rest of my life. But you know what? I never regret any of that. I would rather count my blessings rather than feeling sorry for my imperfections. I’ve tried to make the very best of every day in my life, and for me, that is way more than enough. I’m happy just the way I am, and I’m thankful for everything I have, everything I don’t have, and everything that I will never have.
Be a better you, for you. Dress up, wear heels, put some make-up on, for you. Live in your dream, be awesome in what you do, especially for you. Learn from your mistakes, get back up from your downfalls, for you. Be kind, be compassionate, also for you. Make yourself proud for being the very best of you, not to please anyone else but you.
Every people has their very own insecurity. They have flaws, failures, they all once did a couple of things they are not proud of. They have one soul crushing events they wish to forget. Their life is not perfect and nor is mine. I am no different with any other person I know. If there’s one thing I do differently, that one thing that many people is reluctant to do, is that I forgive my past. I accept my flaws. I make peace with my guilts and failures. It’s all simply because there’s nothing I can do to change everything that has happened back in my past. What’s gone is gone, I can only decide what I would like to do on the days to come. Rather than drowning in miseries, I moved on. I’ve seen many people turned their problems to a nightmare. They made their worst moments in life even worse than it should be. They pointed fingers, they blamed random innocent people, they pushed people away, they ran off from reality, they did nothing useful for their own life. Some of them even made their personal problems as someone else’s problems for no particular reason. They let their insecurities hurt people who has nothing to do with their downfalls. My life is no better nor easier than anyone else, but at least, I’m trying so hard to make my own life a better place. If I can do it, and so can you!
