OK sorry to be a complainer. I am on vacation and I am using my blackberry as a bluetooth modem to access the web (crappy but better than blogging via blackberry, trust me).
I was really wanting to just have the re-org take place and get on with life, now the more I hear about my NEW job, the less happy I am.
I am sick and freakin' tired of busting my butt to get handed more responsibility and a hearty "Thank you" from the company. No more cash, more responsibility and now (from all accounts I hear) more travel.
I have five children and I am at the point where I am not very interested in traveling more. I don't want a divorce to be frank.
I was working tech support where at least I could usually be home after 5. Could occasionally work from the house (although for some reason management is terrified we won't actually work despite being able to monitor what we do at any point in the day). Travel had to happen occasionally, but not often. Word is now, the guys doing tech support will not be doing ANY traveling unless EVERYONE in my department is out.
Thanks... I don't want to seem non appreciative, but I am not. My Dad was on the road non stop for a long time and I saw firsthand what it did to my family. It takes a LOT of work to keep things together.
Good news is my headhunter is still interested, and after reading the job description, I am too. Possibility of working for a company with even more name recognition than the one I work for now (and I don't mean the fictitious PHONECO INC.), working from home providing support on a new computer.
Definitely interested at this point.
