I read a blog entry today that talked about somebody leaving their job at the company I’m about to join. While one doesn’t have to believe the written word, I am encouraged when I read the following about said company:
It’s important to note that I don’t have any problem with my current job, it’s interesting and satisfying and there are fantastic people there and I’ve learned more than I could have ever though possible, but this is just too good an opportunity, and it’s time to move on to other things.
This is somewhat ironic, since the job he is taking is one that I also applied for when I gave up on my current employer working for me. Not having spent the last two years in hardcore software engineering, and instead believing some dream that I was going to be happy working with business people and doing support didn’t make the most attractive candidate.
