Some of our best leaders/managers have left (not always by choice) and it gave me an opportunity to increase my experience by taking different challenges on. I cant help but think that will benefit me later in my career. However, I was not able to leave at the beginning of the transition when I had other offers lined up out the door. Those will be much harder to get now. I will likely just network and keep my head down until things pick up and then leave them high and dry just as they would do to me if they had the chance. I am over this s show and her bag of clowns. I cant even count how many ludicrous things have been discussed / promised and then forgotten or ignored in the last 10.5 months.
One bit of advice for all my other fellow LAPCers: Dont forget to challenge the change IF it does happen in August. Remember, you are still needed and you have a financial backbone in the wings just waiting. Stand up for yourself when the time is right.
