AMD: not the place to stay?

As the merger is coming to a close due to legal paperwork getting pushed through, we are seeing some changes along the way already. Yesterday I also got the chance to visit the AMD building here in SH that was only opened recently, was visiting it since some groups (including ours) will be relocated to their building really soon. It was a surprise to me too as we originally thought that we will move next year; of course, there's not much impact for me other than a change in a colourful environment to a boring place. I feel that the locals were somewhat unfortunate as they need to find new places to rent, arrange for the move in such a short time; and also to note that the building is quite far away too. This gave me a sense of feeling fairly unorganized. I'm going to be back in Toronto next month and maybe finding a new company to move to if opportunity knocks wouldn't be such a bad idea afterall. The only things that are holding me back is my manager who has been good to me, my commitment towards the local team here (once I leave, they won't have anyone to rpt to as we still do not have a local mgr or director), and my feeling that I haven't finished what I am here to accomplish yet. Oh well, will see what happens further down the road and enjoy SH for now I guess...

ha ha, I have "ideal BMI in compensation for my fatness" tho - as explained by someone :p I guess it's frustrating knowing there's like changes everyday in the office. Having to deliver the news and changing it all the time is pretty hard too - always having to think of excuses and explanations for the team despite knowing it's not always true. Mmm... I guess mgmt does it (change of heart) every other second but it's quite new to me...

Hey man, ur old team? Nah, I dun want you to beat me up... lols

Umm.. what a surprise to know that you may decide to come back to Canada! It must be tough to decide whether to stay or not and to deal with immense changes at work. Update us with your situation. Good luck!
