Our company is going through some major changes, and 40% of my team has decided now would be a great time to be out. One nearly died (intubated in the ICU for nearly 2 weeks, internal bleeding, etc.), and there's no timetable on his return. Another had some personal family issues pop up. The 3 that I have working are all fairly new to the role. So here I am, trying to manage the team while still doing most of my old job because they did not backfill that position, and now I'm trying to keep things afloat for the 2 guys who won't be back for a bit. My boss has moved on to a new role so everyone is now coming to me for answers he used to provide. I've literally been working 16+ hours a day for about 3 weeks, and I'm still way behind on almost everything.
I'm flying somewhere warm next week and spending all of my time drunk by a pool.
What a horsefeathering difference 2 months make. Our org charts are complete after some massive changes, I’m on to a new role, and 100% of the horsefeathers I was doing before is now behind me. My new VP told us to hit the road as often as we want if we’re fully vaccinated and comfortable doing so. This past week was my first week of work travel in over a year, and it was so satisfying to be out, even if it was just Philly. I’ve moved from the support side to our sales side so dealing with our current and prospective customers will mean even less stress for me.
