Today we were informed that the woman who is my boss’s boss is leaving. Her last day will be next Friday (the 13th…how apt is that?). That makes 4 people gone from this department in a month and one of those 4 is the one that’s in charge of the whole shebang. What does that tell you? Man, I was almost out of here and now I am on a sinking ship. The boss’s boss will be here from San Francisco next week so who knows what’s going to happen.
If that’s not bad enough, my boss is barely holding it together because of some family issues/emergencies that cropped up this week. Her boss is leaving, which means she is going to have to do her job AND the boss’s job AND deal with family crisis all at the same time. She did say in our meeting this morning that family comes first and if she takes PTO and gets written up, so be it. Hmmmm…would have liked a little of that understanding thrown my way about 60 days ago.
I have a phone meeting scheduled with my HR rep this afternoon at 4:30. I will know more about how to proceed after that.
