We're going to federal POUND ME IN THE ASS prison! @ 04:22 pm

So today they laid off 3 people from my department and relocated one. This company has no spine, and it's run by a big invertebrate. We have no guts, no plan, no leadership. The people that were laid off was because they weren't making any money. Granted that's a good reason to let someone go, the company never tried to help them. I come to find out that even senior staff didn't know about the layoff until today. It was all handled internally in my department which is a crock in itself.

So I guess this means I polish off my resume and see what I can do other places. Dave and I talked about taking a day off and going out looking together. We work pretty well together so maybe we'll be able to work together again. I suppose if the company offers me $50k a year in my review next week I'll stay but I honestly get the feeling that this department is really going down the proverbial shitter. I don't want to be around to watch that happen. There are a lot of other opportunities out there.

So if you leave do you think I should ask for a raise or will they just give me a "Service Plan" also.

They'll probably give you the shaft like everyone else in the IT department is getting.

Okay if it was me and Gene in a no hold bars 12 rounds who would win.

We would have a little trouble getting him in the ring (physically) but I think I could take him after that.

If you find anything interesting, let me know..

If you and Dave up and quit I probably wouldn't quit right away since I'd feel bad because they'd need me. But I probably wouldn't stick around for a long time, this department would really suck without the BSS people and you and Dave around.

Dave and I had discussed the three of us all doing something. You, me, and Dave could get some SERIOUS shit done if we had opportunity.
