So you know your department and are going to learn a new department and thats bad for promotion? I would rather people that work for me know more.

What did you decide? Good luck and I agree with all the advice here. If you are going to work insane hours, try to steer your career out of public sector. Working those hours in private equity or investment banking will be much more financially rewarding.

Overall, yes, but his manic, always-stressed demeanor frequently makes me stressed by association. I guess he's oblivious to it. I'm ready for some calmer managers/coworkers dude!

"I'll be shocked if you ever work past 5:30 at this new job."
Again, he views the grueling hours we endure as some kind of badge of honor.

"You're not going to have as many opportunities for advancement there."
Maybe, maybe not. But I'll worry about that when the time comes.

Still have not received something along the lines of, "I'm sorry to see you go, but good luck in the new position."
Did you have any reply to these comments,the guy seems to be oblivious about mentoring or creating a positive work environment.
