    Ah, yeah, most companies have no interest in obsolete equipment. Tough break on Moore's Law.

    • This past Friday, I was playing basketball with the kids at work. Chased after a rebound, lost my footing, and face planted on the asphalt court. I also broke my hand.

      They've been excellent about letting me process the injury ("if you're sad, then let yourself be sad"), have pulled me back to desk duty/documentation, and have been excellent about walking me through all necessary paperwork.

      • My one year's anniversary in this job (new field, new environment) is in 4 days.

        My boss just gave her notice. So, in 17 days, I will be the boss.

        Gulp.

        • I've applied to be the boss again. There is a vacancy to be backfilled, as my former manager's last day was today. We'll see how it goes this time after I didn't make the cut in May, but got a personal phone call from my director that my interview was good, but the competition from a field of 7 applicants was very close. *shrug*

              • My department dropped from 3 to 1 and it's my one year anniversary, so I'm asking my boss to triple my salary.

                Never hurts to ask, right?

                • I was told to "shut the fuck up" numerous times by the children last night, which resulted in a talk from the campus wide about how staff need to support other staff when the kids start acting like that.

                    If I had a nickel for every time I heard “Shut the fuck up, b-tch!” at work from a child or adolescent, I’d be the one buying Twitter.
                    That said, it’s crucial to stick together as staff. Lethal if you don’t. The worst patients are the ones who identify the right staff to turn against other staff, then feed off the resulting chaos.

                      And with my wrist injury, I was told by my supervisor to tell other staff and let them know I'm not ratio if a restraint is needed, but to not tell the kids.

                      • Today, I was informed that one resident is not allowed to use a computer because she never gives it up.

                        I learned this after I gave her a computer.

                          One of my residents at work has gone from saying awful things about me while she's on the phone with her friends I'm in the room to "I don't like her, but I don't want to hurt her feelings" and asking how much coffee I've had and asking me about my tattoos.

                            Made it to the final two this time; still didn't get it. Was told by our AVP that he has no doubt I can do the job, but the other candidate just had a little more of what they were looking for at the moment.

                            I've been very professional in how I've handled the news, but obviously I'm disappointed. I love the company and don't really want to leave right now, so I need to identify opportunities to potentially advance by moving into a role in a different area, such as project/engagement management or pre-sales/solutioning.

                            There is also talk of creating additional super-senior/non-management leadership roles within our advisory practice, in the form of either ServiceNow product line or industry-focused verticals. Each of these would be headed by a new "principal" consultant role who wouldn't be a people leader, but instead a technical/industry mentor for less experienced consultants and a functional design lead on high-value accounts. I think this is definitely something I could gun for once it is officially announced.

                            Otherwise, I don't see myself liking the stress of being an engagement manager, so that leaves maybe making a move into pre-sales.

                              You know the rules. If you want to be stable stay. If you want to advance, leave. I knew a guy at Raytheon who was passed over for promotion twice. He left. 15 months later he came back, skipped two levels, and got an ungodly raise.

                              You can't climb anymore, you have to parkour.

                                Absolutely. Unless the child you’re working with is a budding sociopath, s/he is going to respond well to empathy, love, and kindness, not to mention structure. It just takes a while to establish that rapport. New staff are almost always going to take the heat, but once they know you care about them, even if their attitude is sh-tty with you more often than not, they’ll still respect you, and listen to you when it really matters. You’re making a difference, even if it doesn’t feel like it somedays- hell, most days.
