A young Nigerian man working at an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) company has asked Nigerians for advice. The unidentified man who shared his story on social media complained about the conditions of his work.
The man explained that he has been contemplating on whether he should quit or continue to work at the company. He revealed that his company pays salary late despite the fact the he is being underpaid compared to the value he brings to the company.
He noted that the ICT company he works for trains students on how to use computer software and also repair computers. The unidentified man also revealed that he has not been paid for December which led to him experiencing a bad Yuletide season.
According to him, he is not sure if the right thing to do is quit his job or just continue working with the company. In his post on Nairaland, the young man begged Nigerians to advise him on what decision to make.
Read his story below:
“I work with an ICT company, as a technical staff. We train students when it comes to the use of computer software. Also we are into computer maintenance.
But there is a bad side of it, I don't get paid on time and apart from that, the pay is not much despite the huge income that comes into the company from training and repairs of computers and printers. I receive five figures as salary and it’s not able to cater for my monthly needs. The worst part of it is that I was not given Xmas holiday despite the fact that the school is on holiday and what pains me most I have not been paid December salary and it has made the Christmas celebration very bad for me. I think I am just being used to build the organisation with low return on my side.
I have thought of quitting the job several times, but another thought comes to me not to. Please, I can't keep this decision to myself alone and I need your advice. If you were in my shoes, what will you do?”
What would you advice him to do?
