Change in Ecosystem:Pond to Lake

In my three and half years tenure in the IT industry, have had the opportunity to work for two product companies. ReadiMinds, a Singapore headquartered, which was one of the earliest innovative companies in SOA platform and SourceN Inc, a US based startup, specialised in product development. There were many similarities in the organisational setup and the work-culture in my previous organisations. Since, both of them were typically small sized when compared to my current employer.

It has been a week and a day since I have joined Nous Infosystems; though my official presence in the company has been for 4 working days. I feel like a fish which made its way from a Pond to Lake, which requires sometime to get used to the new ecosystem. In such a short span of time I have noticed a lot differences in the organisational setup & the work-culture. The size of work-force @ Nous is 10 times that of SourceN, so its obvious their would be processes for every functional area of the company, to manage the organisation function effectively.To get used to processes, so many people around, organisational hierarchy, formal attire, guess it would take some time to get used to this ecosystem.

In the coming weeks the fish needs to brace itself to face yet another ecosystem, which would be completely alien.
