Re: The Umbrella Corporation

I know you have been working 12 hour days, but does double the work load mean more 12 hour days, or a work load that you can handle while looking like a rock star?

Re: Raise negotiation

The money is good and the hours aren't usually horrible, but this attitude of "they asked for it so we MUST provide it immediately no matter what" is BS.

Re: Courtesy of Juanita Jean

So Chicago has had very strict gun laws for years. You could not have a hand gun whatsoever in the city limits unless you were a cop.

Re: Raise negotiation

Great. That just says to me it will be a hot mess during the integration and the office politics will get ugly.

Re: Raise negotiation

100% increase, plus a 50% bonus on top of that. A couple of factors:

- My company was bought out by big investment bank and my boss quit 8 months in

Re: Thyroid update

Get yourself a jar of Bubbies kosher pickles -- cucumber or tomatoes -- and eat 1/2 to one every day.

Re: Thyroid update

Update on me:

Had my blood work check up in July. I kind of stopped taking supplements, so I knew what would happen:

Any suggestions?

With your new overlord, is there any kind of mentoring program available? Or, at the very least, training you can suggest to her to understand the game and be more professional? I think she would benefit with some [more]

Re: Idiots on GMA (dog is "sassing"?)

It's people who don't understand that about dogs who end up with uncontrollable ones with behavior problems because the dog is confused and doesn't understand who is in charge.

Are you serious?
That was all i had to do?

Re: My tech support story

There's a reason a former associate called them the "helpless desk."
