It’s been quite a crazy first month. Not only was the job seriously hit-the-ground running, but it’s been a tonne of stuff I have never done before: disaster.
Well it turned out that it was not too much of a disaster after all. Some folks in global are extremely high-handed. They work on their own terms and most importantly, their own timing. They do not bother replying to mails and will only do so if they have some benefit, an annoying and potentially dangerous trait typical of any Global functions.
On a personal front, people I have been avoiding for 4 months and have refused to meet want to meet up, I seem to be bumping into them at every corner. Another annoying trait but not dangerous 🙂
I also understand that my ex-boss, who made live a living hell, got severely short changed during his geographic move. I am (glad to say) not really happy about it but I also note that I sincerely wish he realizes what it feels like. My immediate appraisor got promoted; a ridiculous thing considering the amount of politics he played.
