That was interesting.

16 Nov

P.H. is glad for this week.  With a little help from her friends, she was able to determine this is not the place for her (or her sanity).  In the past few days she’s witnessed a heap of bad behavior including: 2 extended shouting matches, a colleague who can only say ‘no’ and give excuses, a husband and wife who have not once referenced the existence of their children, a host of bad attitudes of which P.H. has never previously witnessed in the workplace, and, the crowning glory, THE COMPANY DOES NOT HAVE THE LEGAL ABILITY TO WORK IN THIS COUNTRY.  Their commercial license is 8 MONTHS lapsed.

The MD is not in yet this morning because he sent out a corker of an e-mail yesterday:

Good afternoon. I want to inform everyone I will be out of the loop again for the short term. I have several major business tasks that are fundamental to our success tackle in the near future. Sales Lady will be the decision authority for all day to day business and operations for the time being. Please refer your concerns first through your department heads. Department heads report to Sales Lady. The only person who needs to call me is Sales Lady. 

So, to conclude, P.H. was brought in without any plan or comment to the other members of the team.  She’s been more or less ignored (which she doesn’t mind), but cannot understand how the fundamentals of planning a company work.  Additionally, for a company that is ‘so busy,’ P.H. has to wonder why everyone has time to take 2 hour lunches every day?  So, P.H. will not finish her week because…she has an interview tomorrow at a place she really wants to work!

Wish her luck.
