...the emergency meeting at work today?
Started off like some high level meeting and then they kinda slipped in "oh by the way, we're getting rid of three heads so you're all going on consultation...here's the new organisation chart...you'll have to all apply for these positions if you want to stay at the company..."
We were all stunned at how they delivered this news to us.
Decisions made by highly-paid idiots who have just looked at numbers and graphs and not bothered to find out what we actually do in our jobs.
The HR guy there - he's been at the company for FOUR weeks. If me and my immediate colleagues handed in our notices, that would be 36 years of combined experience walking out of the door - the company couldn't care less it seems.
Am I upset? Yes, but I'm more angry than anything.
Do I have a good chance of staying with the company in one of those 'new' roles? Yes - in fact, a very good chance, but right now, I don't feel like I want to work for them any more.
If I left tomorrow, I would miss some good friends and colleagues (and my gym membership) - the company ... I won't miss at all.
Got loads of things in my head but too angry to make any sense of it all. The glamorous C's been really helpful and understanding - poor thing bore the real brunt of my rant when I saw her tonight.
I have some options to consider, they weren't very high on my list of priorities before but have to be shunted up now.
What a bummer! :-(
