    Default While the forum was down, what was I up to?

    Well, we all know the forum was down for a while over the last month or so, hence I wasnt able to post and seek any peoples advice and opinions.

    Anyway, I got to a point in life where I was really sick of my job so I thought do I look, or dont I? Looked at the economy and thought I would see if I can balance things if the worst happened and I ended up with nothing.

    Anyway, long story short - a couple of months ago I applied for another job, 2-3 weeks later I got it.

    I have been with my current employer for 9 years and 4 months so was not an easy decision to make but after much mulling I wrote my notice and handed it in 3 weeks ago. Bearing in mind im going to a direct competitor.

    I thought I would leave my current role with my head held high and for about 3 weeks I did, until my current employers put me on garden leave for the FINAL 3 days of my 9+ year employment. Petty???

    Anyway, I start my new job next week and am sat at home doing sweet FA for about a week in the meantime.

    To say im excited is an understatement.....hopefully I will enjoy my new job and place and it will help my lifestyle a little as I was really unhappy at the workplace.

    So wish me luck folks.


    Bye bye Vec B

    Its not uncommon, depends what you do for a living. People can do a lot of damage to systems, files, theft etc when they decide to move on.

    Wow, that was quick feedback. Thank you.

    DasArab, as per your comments, yes I could have done some serious damage. I work in IT but as a sales consultant for contracts/hardware and account manager, so yes their database could have been in the wrong hands easily as I am going to a full on rival company.

    However, when I handed my notice in I did ask them to show a bit of trust in me and I had hoped that 9+ years would show my loyalty.

    What bugs me is that I could have done more damage in 3 weeks of notice period than what I could potentially do in the last 3 days!! But I wouldnt ever dream of that as its not what im about, im not one for burning my bridges, etc.

    But as you say, hey ho im out of there.

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Been there done that recently. I took voluntary redundancy from my job of 10 and a half years (Third Line Windows Support Specialist) back in April, had a couple of months off and am now working in a completely different role doing product support on Windows, Linux and Mac for a company in Cambridge that writes bespoke software. It's been a challenge and very different after such a long time in the same job, but worth it and I'm loving the change.

    Good luck fella.
