Corporate Mentality

And so.

Having finally settled into the consolidation and getting things up and running smoothly, more consolidation is on the horizon, and most of us feel like Corporate just smiled at all our suggestions for improvements, patted us on the head, and said "Thanks," while doing SOMETHING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT.

So another massive change, but they are assuring us that our jobs are safe and everything will be busy busy and all will be well.

But it doesn't make anyone feel better, especially after having spent so much time training people to be good employees, only to be told we're basically "shove paper in the scanner" monkeys with no reason to think further than that.

Things may, of course, end up better than that, but that's how it FEELS right now.

I'm just trying to keep calm and not eat a bag full of Easter candy.

that sucks. Sorry to hear it.

The college president here just stuck us with a completely unworkable new schedule for our students with kids (i.e. MOST of our student body) then she QUIT and we still have to make it happen.

As one of my fellow specialists says, "It is what it is."

The worst thing is, when you work for a Big Corporation, it's that Hive Mind that causes the problems. Individual execs are all good people and seem to listen, but get them together and things all go to hell, largely because they never have to actually DO any of the work.

I believe you (oddly enough I have never worked for Big Corps)

My workplace, while not corporate as such, is also enamored of huge, onerous changes in the name of "efficiency." GAAAH.

I hate it when businesses do that. "We'd like for your suggestions as to how to improve..."

I hope things start picking up there.

It's because we're still Ad Services, and if anything gets a boot in the throat, it's Ad Services. :P
