What I Know

March 27th, 2014 at 01:46 pm

There was no announcement yesterday but I got a little more information. Two people in our little unit (7 people) have indicated they are leaving -- one is actively looking for another position, and one is going into an entrepreneurial gig full-time. There is also the possibility of a third person leaving, depending on how some circumstances in her life turn out. And a fourth person is considering early retirement in the summer.

One of those people is the supervisor of this unit.

If all four leave, it will be pretty ugly.

The talk about reorganization, however, is mainly about adding at least one position to our unit rather than taking away.

I'll just continue one day at a time. The last time the supervisor's position was open, I was the interim (with no pay raise, I might add). I don't want to do it again. It is a thankless job, and I just about went crazy. I don't have the expertise. I'm good in my field, but not in IT and finance, which is what the supervisor's job entails.

I wish I had left a few years ago when I still had the chance.

But on to happier news -- I'm going to a dinner in Greektown tonight. OPA! It's cold and rainy today, so I'm going to indulge in a cab ride from the train station if the weather continues like this.

I found a penny last night and a quarter this morning.

If I stay on target, it looks like I will transfer $1000 into savings on pay day (a little over two weeks away).

    Re-orgs are no fun, but it sounds like you have a job until you retire? That has to be a good thing, though I hope no more additional work to your long permanently.

    My first date with DH was Diana's in Greektown (way back when). I second the idea for a cab.

    Good job on the $1K to savings!

    I suppose the leaving of others will impact your responsibilities. Not the best news. Try to stay positive!

    I'm with Laura--at least it doesn't sound like your job is in danger. Can you negotiate additional salary if you get this job dumped on you? Extra anything?

    If they ask me to take extra responsibility I will definitely ask for compensation. Budget crisis or not!
