I was called into my manager's office yesterday. I have been "repositioned" as part of the reorg. I am now the Infrastructure Project Manager (cool, no problem. Like that part.). But...same salary. And I now also have to help out on the extremely short staffed IT call desk for our area.
I am not happy. I said "Do I at least get a new job title and bump in officer grade?" My manager (I feel so sorry for her, they are trying to phase her out because she actually challenges the CIO and his cronies.) said she'd look into it. She just looked so beaten.
I have been looking already. I am really ramping up the job search now. I actually used to like working here and coming in every day. Now I just HATE it with a passion.
Sorry for venting. But I'm ticked.
No other options to transfer internally as a short term means to provide shelter from the storm? I would guess your HR group probably is aware of the fact no one wants to work under the CIO and they may help in a transfer if you are in good standings. If not, getting out while you're still alive is smart.
Yeah, good luck! I always hated jobs lke that.
The question is do you think you can out last that CIO? He probably isn't long for that position, but if it's going to be hell to work there, I'd definitely get my name out. Update Linked-In, all the best employers i know are starting their searches there now.
