    At the time of leaving organisation

    May I say lines as below at the time of leaving organization:

    I have been a wonderful experience of working over here for more than two years. I would like to thanks everyone for the cooperation and support I have received during my tenure. All the best to everyone for their careers ahead.

    Are using "as" and "at the time of" wrong or are using them redundant here?

    It has have been a wonderful experience of working over here for more than two years. I would like to thank everyone for the cooperation and support I have received during my tenure. All the best to everyone for with their careers ahead.

    1) Why " I have been a wonderful ..." is wrong here.
    2) Is using "over " redundant or wrong?
    3) Why only thank not thanks.
    4) Why I can't use "for" instead of "with".

    Please clarify for my understanding. Thank you.

    Self-praise is pompous and conceited!

    It is redundant, and it makes the text less formal.

    This is because the infinitive is formed by "to" plus the base form of the verb.

    "With" sounds more natural in that context.

    Re: At the time of leaving organisation

    I have been a wonderful experience working for a company - sounds more like a joke.

    If you are talking about "over here", it implies there should be somebody "over there".

    I think to wish somebody "best wishes for your career" is not wrong but "with" sounds better.
    I am not a teacher.

    One more layman question:
    It has been a wonderful experience....... . This sentence means that I am talking about myself. Then why "I have been a wonderful ..." is not correct.

    "I have been wonderful" means that you are complimenting yourself, suggesting that you did a really wonderful job! Most people don't say such nice things about themselves. "I have been a wonderful experience" is simply wrong. You cannot be an experience.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Because the focus, or subject, in the first phrase is on the experience you've had, rather than being all about you.

    Using, "I have been wonderful.." makes it seem big headed because, it is like saying "I have been brilliant". Starting a sentence like this with "I", makes you the subject, or focus, of the sentence and implies that the whole world revolves around you, because you are so fantastic. For this reason, as tedmc pointed out, this sort of sentence is sometimes used in comedy, because it sounds very conceited.

    Does that make sense? That is why the others are saying you shouldn't use it.

    'As' 'when' are redundant.
