So for all of you who have been "watching this space", you'll be glad to know that I resigned from my job last Friday. I've got a new job with a professional services firm as a researcher. I've been in my current job for the past 2 years. I was ready to resign after day one. But I persevered and whilst I absolutely love my job, the culture at work is absolutely horrendous. It is a case of too many chiefs and not enough indians. This company is classic Dilbert.
One of the things I pride myself in (okay, perhaps not my work ethic), is my ability to become very good at any job I take on. To be told that I am doing an "average" job and then to give me a bonus "out of goodwill" is just downright insulting. I would keep thinking that there was something wrong with me, if it wasn't for the support of my colleagues and predecessor!!
So now I am looking forward to working in the city again - I'll even enjoy commuting on the train to work.
