- The final straw, looking for another job
Went for a secondment in another team after having applied for a job with them, loved it, they loved me and my experience, knew there was no job at the end of at as no budget till end of our financial year. So did the other guy who went after me.
They ask him to stay for a bit longer, his current manager gives them a pissy ultimatum, all of a sudden, money is found in the budget and he ends up with a permanent job.
Not the first time they’ve pulled this sort of crap on people but a first for me. I was already fairly unhappy in my current position, but this is the final nail in the coffin for me and i’m concentrating all my time looking for something else.
A bit of a moan I know, but screw this for a laugh.
So what has been your reason for looking for something else?Posted 2 years agoalexxxMember
I got pissed off with the boss doing 1 day a week for £60k a year and the 1 day they did was a mix of facebook and shouting at their staff with little knowledge of any situation…
So I setup my own business.. that was 6 years ago
What do you do? change of place or change of career time?Posted 2 years ago
So, they liked this other bloke more than you?
How dare they.
There was never any money in the budget for anyone else in the team till at least July. We were both made aware of that. I have vastly more experience in the software and completed all the tasks required.
So in a way, a popularity contestPosted 2 years agoajantomSubscriber
My wife and I were going through the adoption process, and had been approved. I’d told HR that I was thinking about taking 50/50 split parental leave with my wife, as is now allowed. I wasn’t even properly considering it, just talking through the options.
Anyway my boss cornered me, and told me to consider carefully how taking leave might affect my career.
Mind you, he had form. On being told of a female member of staff’s pregnancy earlier in the year, he exclaimed loudly to a full staff room – ‘Oh for ***** sake, not another one.’ Lovely man.

Once upon a lifetime ago i felt i was massively underpaid for my contribution and realtive to my peers. I approached my then boss with my case clearly articulated, he wasn’t really interested but did then to go on and complain, in the conversation, about the price of his new pool going in.Posted 2 years ago
I resigned an hour later and was gone in 2 weeks.
FF 8 years and he was working for me and needed me to play ball for him to retire …..stumpyjonSubscriber
I started 2 years ago as manufacturing manager reporting to the UK ops director who reported to the global ops director who reported to the CEO. There was also a supply chain manager and quality manager. The UK Ops director quit nearly 2 years ago, the Global Ops director who started 2 years ago, quit 6 months later, neither has been replaced. I’ve taken on the supply chain managers role and much of the UK Ops director role and now get ranted at by the CEO, the part time UK MD is about to retire, the quality manager quit on Tuesday and the replacement UK Ops Director due to start in March quit before he started!
I’m getting out, be interesting to know who’ll take on my extended role, I would speak to HR but the UK HR manager was constructively dismissed last year.Posted 2 years ago
