Where did this manager go? If you enjoyed working under them, and they're off to another company, is there any chance you might be able to follow them and perform a similar role?

That's a great question, LoneAspen. This manager jumped to a small company across the country. Actually, he was across the country already and we were remote. A relocation is not feasible for me, so nix that idea. Additionally, the staff they are hiring are local out there and are others from my Megacorp at that location. They have plenty of talent locally drifting.

This continued brain drain is another cup of crud in the BS bucket.

How big of this buck can you tolerate? It sounds like you are almost at the tipping point. If so, you may consider looking for another position elsewhere. However, grass may not be greener elsewhere. The amount of BS may be similar.

I understand, and you are wise to be careful about this.

JoeWras,
Think a few of us must have w*rked in the same insanity! My story is much like yours a great place that got stupid in the recession. When the new VP took over there were no management set deadlines! Instead an optimistic PM who knew nothing about the w*rk set a Target Date that quickly became a commitment.

I probably would have received a package, but I decided to transfer to a different area. Biggest mistake ever! Straight out of the frying pan into the fire. The group I went to sounded great, I had a lot of dealing with them before my xfer. What a group of idiots, there was a 73 yo guy with a bad marriage who was afraid of his wife and w*rked 80 hours a week to stay away from home. Dog gone if he wasn't happy with my OMY hours, the group picked up the attitude it went from bad to worse. I finally left about 6 months early.

Best wishes to you for the right answer in your situation.
