Thanks for your reply. Agree, more information is required here.
1) Your more "senior colleagues" may have given you poor advice, as they themselves may not know what they are doing.
Actually, my friends who knew my work related harassments and complications also gave the same advice to 'fight back'.
When you are constantly micro-managed, constant criticized over non-essential matters, bullied and harassed, you tend doubt about â€˜selfâ€™.
2) Why are you "avoiding conflict" by resign?
- I put up brave face and continued to work and deliver in difficult time to meet the deadline.
The HR hinted me to resign quietly and said that it would not affect on my performance or career. My manager had good rapport with top guys and I had no support. It was getting difficult to survive and seemed like a lost battle at the end.
I waited for next level manager to decide, when he also sided with her, so resigned. He knew I was right and harassed, but he didnâ€™t intervene.
Most important: What was the conflict?
It is normal to disagree with your boss or to have conflict with other co-worker, boss, cutsomer, ... etc.
So need more background information / true reason of why did you resign by yourself
E.g. ... was it a missed deadline, work delivered has wrong data, information was outdated, or such customer complaint , other team complaint to big boss ?
When a team member resigned and she forgot to keep me in loop about important information and related deadline. She assumed it was okay to deliver late. There was a blind spot. When global team refused, she realized that she was about to miss the deadline. Although we worked around to fix it and delivered. But, she blamed me.
Her team had major turnover and knowledge was not retained and passed on. It would frustrate the new joiner and the stakeholders both.
Few stakeholders openly abused (verbally) and in front her too. When i pointed out she said I didn't fit into HSBC 'culture'.
HSBC (and others) should perform annual check on temper and maturity level.
3) Regarding finding job. Which part of the bank were you in ? Not needing detials, just departmental role, e.g.
back office, technology, middle office, operations , settlement, front office, teller .... etc coz that will make it much easier to share any recruiting market information with you.
Appreciate. Please PM me.
