Today started out like any other work day: buzzing through emails, analyzing campaign trends, spending too much time thinking about lunch. That is until my boss put a last minute team meeting on our calendars at noon. Twenty minutes later, I was crushed. We were reorging our team. Change is always scary and uncomfortable, but that’s not the part that’s bothering me. As part of the new structure, I’ll be giving up some of my favorite parts of my job, including the high visibility from senior leadership that I enjoyed. Worst of all, my manager changed. I will now report into the lady I mentioned yesterday who genuinely believes millennials have nothing to offer.
I’m currently frustrated and devastated, but I’m so lucky I have the best friends (and that I still have a job). After I told L and LB, they were waiting (along with PJ) when I got home with good wine and a home-cooked meal. We sat on our porch for a long time, laughing, talking, and listening to music.
Sound off: any career advice?
