Wow, long time no update……
Waited until Christmas 2019 to catch my breath from this job. Took some paid time off, which was very nice and went back to work in Jan.
Got quite a few offers to work elsewhere in Dec and Jan/Feb, but something didn’t feel right about taking them, even though the job was consuming more and more of my life. Well made the right choice financially as Covid wiped out all my other options. Work wise, my work load doubled as support evaporated as the company started eliminating personnel or people left for personal reasons and were not replaced.
Work got way busier and more piled on me as i had to write, research and ultimately defer work until 2021, only to have to start replanning it once i deferred it. Add in projects that very little support was given and well, quite a recipe for disaster. Which it did yesterday.
I will say though as a compliment to the company, their Covid protocols are second to none. Although the lead up to action was very slow, but that can be said of most everyone’s response as denial turned to belief
Time to start looking again……sigh.
