Work got all sorts of shaken up two nights ago when everything got reorganized. I completely agree with the changes they made, and think that once people settle in things will be much better. However, I am left in no man’s land.
I’ve been assigned to a position that didn’t exist before so no one has figured out yet what I am suppose to do exactly so I kinda just float, and am in the midst of writing a super long email to my boss(es) asking all the questions I have about my new job. SO that’s all good for now, or as good as it can be. And my boss told me I was selected because they needed someone to think outside the box, which I like to think I’m good at. This job has such potential, and I’m really excited for what it could be.
On the other hand, I’ve been made to keep part of my old job and my counterpart is infuriating at the moment. I asked her what help she needed, what research I could do for her etc, and she told me that she was fine and had what she needed. Later she goes on this rant (in front of the whole office) about how she doesn’t know any of this stuff that she is suppose to and how it’s making her look stupid and not be able to do her job well. I.e. I haven’t given her any of the research she needs or the help, and that I am slacking and not doing anything. And instead of coming to me and being like “I need xxxx” she went to another analyst and asked him for help. WTH.
I’m about ready to strangle her.
Tomorrow starts what will probably be 5 days of 18-hour long work days. I’m hoping it’s short, since it’s only suppose to be an intro day. But who knows 😛
