Be Your Own

Be your own, learn to do things on your own. As an employee you have to learn to solve a problem without your boss's help. That will make you a good problem-solver. Mind you, a good employee always comes up with critical decisions that will put the company in another level.

Hard to find a good employee. As humans we have weaknesses, but an employee who is able to manage their time would be good, i.e. know when to crack jokes with coworkers, know when to sit down and work, someone who is punctual is good.

Good employee

I believe what is a good employee is someone who has confidence - seriouse, yet playful, has passion and caring, someone who is great at netwotking with others, stays away from gosspis. Note: even administrators gossip about their empolyees I've seen it and over heard it. Someone who is secure in who they are doesn't front or act rude, willling to help whomever whenever if they are authorized to and if not, gets the correct person. It's what you are and what you aren't - be yourself.
