I survived an acquisition, moved to Denver, moved back to MN, dealt with inept management beyond my control or comprehension and now, with another new wave of VPs and directors - after they just fired the entire upper level 3 years ago saying we needed to "trim" that level, I'm finding this place more and more insufferable as my job titles, duties, and function changes - yet again.
For those people that have been through this before, and I know this is personal, but what was your breaking point to finally change careers? Or if you stayed with your company through everything you had endured, what was the light at the end of the tunnel you held out for?
Just one of those years so far...
Get off the company computer and getcha ass back to work!
IT Dept (big brutha) is watching.
Odd timing, I'll be resigning later today and starting with a new company next Monday. They're sending me to PA and OH next week.
It's cold up there!
With me it was all about wanting to get up and go to work every day. Some of the new procedures take a lot of time away from me being out on the road which is how I earn. I typically have an office afternoon each week but now I'll need at least a day and most likely two. Just BS like that. Ya gotta be happy to be at your best.
