Job Update

August 9th, 2007 at 06:22 am

I got told on June 18th that I was getting a letter regarding my attitude and how I had to shape it up during the next 90 days or start thinking about a new job.

My boss was told by his boss who was told by his boss tht my attitude sucks. I have mega attitude and I did tell someone my opinion and they didn't want to hear it. Lesson learned yummy - shut up.

Anyways. It is now approximately 9 weeks later. No letter. My boss said that he thinks it might never show up. Last he knew he had brought the draft letter to HR. HR had issues about the letter being not specific enough and not giving the type of feedback one needs to address the issue. His boss had a meeting with HR to discuss it that never as far as I know happened.

Boss asked me if I wanted this followed up on. My answer was no. Why remind anyone its not done. I'm going to wait until Sept 18th and figure by then its pretty much dead - that being three month's after I was told about it.

Until then I am careful on adding to the Gross National Product by buying things.

Oh and the Sr Director was in today. I had two meetings with him where I got lots of new exciting projects.

My advice... if you are gonna do stupid stuff don't do it to people who have political connections and bitch to the very senior uppper management folks.

    Yeah, whether or not you received the letter is really not as important as making sure no one else picks up on your 'attitude.' Whether they're politically connected or not, things have a way of leaking out at a company and being shared.

    That sucks you have a right to your opinion. I hate when some one in authority disagrees with you the next thing you know, you have an attitude that is BS. There is a law out against employees who retaliate against another. I think it was never brought up because some one in HR knew it was a joke and maybe your boss' boss was acting out of anger. Thank God verything worked out I am happy for you

    Thanks for the nice comments! My Snr Director goes on vacation in about 2 weeks so I figure if i make it the next two weeks it is good and over - thank goodness. I have noticed my work has been affected. My oomph has totally gone.

    Might be time to start looking. Hard to know...

    One of the reasons I rarely let workplace people know about my blog. This blog can be a great place to be snarky.
