Countdown

with 3 comments

For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been in the process of being laid off since last October.  Actually, it’s been since 2000 but last October it sounded like this was it.  Here it is, August 1st and we have a meeting with the higher ups.  This could mean one of several things.

1. We have decided to keep you on but we still don’t know where you’ll be working on 01/01/08 (our lease runs out on 12/31/07 and at this point can’t renew)

2. We have decided to keep you and we have a new building

3. We have decided to keep you and you’ll be working from home

4. We’re sorry, we no longer need your services and you end date is 12/31/07

I’m not sure which one I want to hear.  Naturally I would love to keep my job.  Who wants to go through the process of finding a new job and getting used to a whole new group of people?  Not me!  On the other hand, if they let us go we have a really nice package and I could take some time off between jobs.  In theory, it’s a win-win for me, so why don’t I feel that way :\

Update 08/02/07 – We received a mixed bag of news yesterday.  They told us that the plans to close our office are off the table, we’re being absorbed by another department and they’re undergoing a re-org.  LOL  So you’re not losing your job just yet is what I got out of it.  It looks those who end up with a job (there’s a chance some people might not have a job) will be working from home.  WOO HOO!!  We should know more by the end of the month, I’ll keep you posted.
