Today i have send this message to all my Crocs Colleagues..
Today is my last day working for crocs. What a ride it was!
I started in 2007, business was booming and a lot of new employees were hired. My manager welcomed me; “Welcome at crocs. Try not to mess something up”, and away she was. I had to make some space on a desk and took a box from a pallet with new computers in the hallway and installed my own pc.
I first started to read the system documentation; it took me only 10 minutes. My IT colleagues where so busy, documenting things was not the first priority.
It was winter and the extra heating plugged-in the Platinaweg building caused a short circuit regularly and set the whole floor without power.
Great stories from the early years of Crocs.
It was pioneering and I loved every minute of it and the colleagues where great. I soon found out that this was not a normal company, the colleagues were like family and we all were doing something ordinary. We were building a company and a brand from nothing. That is what we did and that is something to be proud of.
We have come a long way since then.
But now, it’s time to move on. It was a privilege and fun working with this ‘family’ and I wish you all the best.
I would like to stay connected with you all so please add me as a friend (or family) on Facebook or follow me on Twitter.
And i have got some lovely replies:
Patrick, You have great skills to offer and hopefully your next adventure is rewarding and brings incredible internal growth.
Take care and Enjoy the holidays with your family.
Dat waren nog eens tijden, op de Platinaweg! Ik wens je het allerbeste toe.
Mooi verhaal Patrick! Brings back old memories. Ook een “waardig” verhaal, de omstandigheden waaronder jij nu vertrekt had ook een andere toon kunnen hebben. Klasse op deze manier.
Hele veel succes in de toekomst en volgen op twitter deed ik je al.
Oh :/ …. goodbye, Patrick!
It is the best goodbye mail I ever read J – to turn a sad thing a bit into the positive direction …
Wish you all the best, may you find a great next job !!!
And remain enjoying ADO games !
Ik vond het altijd fijn om met je samen te werken. Heel veel success met je verdere loopbaan en natuurlijk ook thuis.
Ik ga je opzoeken op facebook.
