New company, new changes.
And so, my boss was in SH for a week. It's good to have someone who came from old ATx culture and understands what's going on. We met up with these SH bosses / mgrs / directors through endless meetings and political talks. Our conclusion was that we had made lots of new clown friends and were mocking them throughout the week. These guys knows nothing about what they are getting into when buying our BU, wants to hold power and put a foot into what we are doing... and eventually fail in doing so. Boss told me I'm free to come back anytime and he'll reserve a spot for me but also warned me in doing so the team will die here. Not to be conceited, but it's cuz the new comp takes forever to execute something. Everything is process process process and nobody makes the call -it's just like my ex-company Celestica which is a dying asset. Can you beleive it? One of my counterparts in the new comp wasted like 3 months to set up 'racks', another team has 2 projects. My team holds like 9 projects in parallel, adding 3 more next week; and will be getting lots more which I am working out with Austin lately. Oh well, i'm going to stick around for 3 more months at least, and if i dun like what i'm seeing? I'm packing. Not to get me wrong, I'm sure there's lots of talented ppl in the new company, but just not these ppl stationed at SH. Heard next month the new comp VP will be in for a visit and he's a smart man; anticipating what his roadmap will be. PS. there were lots of layoffs in the old ATx Toronto (5-10% in every group), feel sorry for some of my friends and wish the all the best in their future endeavors.
