I'd like to tell a story. It is going to take a while to tell, but I will make it interesting, while not representing persons real or imagined, and I may be writing this to benefit in some way! :0 The topic is ultimately layoffs, but it will take me a while to get there. Be patient. I will continue telling my story underneath this heading and to keep it all in one place.
I may be sued, for these posts......but after my recent treatment, firing me, and taking about $50K from me....by trying to make me sign documents.....to keep quite.....I'm not sure I have a choice.
Here is a little about me that might be true or might not.
Started a Decade of so ago.
I lived on the West Coast. Wanted to get closer to my family, so interviewed at P66, and was hired. The sales pitch that the company gives is truly admirable.....and It general I think they are a good company. Unfortunately, the IT leadership totally stunk Not just a little bit. I'll give you some examples.....until I get the layoff part.
I am a real IT guy. At one time, I held all of the Microsoft Certifications. I was a trainer (MCT), a database guy (MCDBA), a systems engineer (MCSE), and a developer (MCSD) At the time, there were maybe only 500 people in the world that held all of those.
I owned my own consulting company, and had a crew of developers and engineers .....That businesses did not call until they were in a bind. I Traveled the US doing training, Road Shows and helping companies out of binds. I chose a job because I was tired of constantly working 160 hours a week. No exaggeration. For my first year at P66, I worked for a cell phone carrier, until I couldn't take it any more.
