    You can't climb anymore, you have to parkour.
    Funny- that happened at Ford- a manager I knew left for GM, and then came back as a director.

    • At my internship, I was moved to a separate cube room. I know it was to make room for a new employee, but at the same time, I hear Lumbergh saying "yeah, we're going to need you to move to the basement..."

        Good for him, but unfortunately that doesn't happen too often. Most of us have to start everything from the scratch after living one place of work.
        It happened to me couple of times already and at the end i decided to try launching my own text services for business, which will help people and companies to get in touch with each other.

          I saw plenty of people change from one auto company to another. I'm sure it happens quite a bit. Heck, Lee Iacocca was President of Ford before he moved to Chrysler to be CEO- that was a decade before I started working.

          For sure, people would jump across town to take a promotion.

            In some industries like mine it is the only way up the ladder unless you want to wait 30 years.

            The pinballing of managers and execs in intel-mil contracting is comical.

                  It's ok, had to be replied to- r morons can't be left alone every time they are letting their bots do their thing.

                    It’s funny watching the reactions of kids when they find out older people play video games too.

                    My daughter’s friends marvel in wonder when they find out her mom and dad play Minecraft and Stardew Valley.

                            • I work with teenagers, and thinking about the level of vitriol I get from them for simply breathing:

                              Teenagers didn't think I was cool when I was a teenager; why would they start now?
