It’s been a very very long week, and it’s only Wednesday! All of the people that are being let go have been told.
For those of you who don’t have any idea about what I speak of, the company I work for was recently purchased by another much larger company that is headquartered in Sweden. One of the departments that I manage was losing to much money (through no fault of their own) and so the decision was made to shut it down. I’ve given them as much notice as I possibly could, 3 to 5 weeks.
My new Swedish boss has been in the office all week working with me, and tomorrow the CEO and someone else will be in the office as well. We’re meeting them for dinner in about an hour, so that we have a nice casual first meeting.
Crazy Crazy Crazy’ness! Thanks for all the words of encouragement. It made me smile at a couple of rough patches. Off to turn myself into a professional woman, Thank goodness for Revlon!
