Remember the pee test last week?
While the job I've been working the past 13 months has fantastic benefits and seemed a very good one at certain moments, I concluded some time ago that this is not the place for me.
The sad fact is that in such a large company, they seem to need to quantify job performance in overly-regimented fashion, and I don't respond well to that kind of micro-managey bullshit.
Actually, I believe it can be done in a way that is less spirit-crushing to the little worker bees like myself, but no large company I've ever worked for seemed to get the balance right.
Starting June 1, I go to work for a smaller company, one which I hope will be an environment in which I can flourish. I'm sad to leave some wonderful people at the other place, but it simply wasn't a good fit. I loved the work, the customers and the coworkers, but being micromanaged sets my teeth on edge. Plus there were massive federal regulations on people in that field, so I'll be well away from that. More on this later.
