Last week, a friend in upper management advised me to jump before I’m pushed out of my job.
“How soon?” I asked.
“You have a week.”
He explained to me the circumstances leading to the situation and assured me it had nothing to do with my competence. Rather, he’d heard word of a shortage of money in the system because of a black-hole-of-a-venture our parent company is (regretting getting) involved in.
Luckily for me, I believe in Plan B’s. Always have a Plan B. I’d started looking elsewhere a couple of months back when several members of upper management were suspended and all of a sudden, no one’s position looked stable. I guess it was a statement of intent by upper upper management: no f***ing around this year… make money or die.
A couple of those suspended saw the writing on the wall and found greener pastures. Time to follow suit.
Watch this space:
I’ll be posting a less cryptic expose next week.
