I’ve had enough

Of the rat race that is currently work.

I’ve finally become fed up with Office Politics, people being put in responsible positions who should not be in charge of anything…

The last straw was my promotion to Manager in October. Fair enough, after all I’d been doing the job for ages and here (I thought) was recognition. So I asked for more money. Again, I thought, fair enough.

Oh no. No, no, no. I had a meeting with the IT manager on Friday, after pestering him for ages. I’m afraid not, he said. I should point out that the company for which I am currently working has recently brought in KPMG to “restructure” the business. Restructure = get rid of people. I personally think the business is being groomed for a takeover.

The problem from my point of view is that the IT Director is now a chap from KPMG. What? Staff wanting more money? No, we have to cut costs, not pay people what they’re worth.

So I’ll be handing in my notice on Monday. I’m going to try doing my own thing for a while.

Hey ho, it’s time for a change; I’ve been working there 7 years now. Not too bad for a 1-month contract.

    I just found your site when I was looking at farkles for my Pan. I saw your comment about handing in your notice, even in this climate, go for it, I worked for a large company for years and even after a bit of a tough six months, I wish you all the luck in the world. Working for yourself is so much more satisfying and you don’t have to share the glory when things go right and when they don’t, there’s no one else to point the finger.

    Do it.

    Thanks David. I was surprised at the amount of support I received from friends and ex-colleagues.

    Keep an eye on the site, I’ll be adding further pages!
