General Chunterings


For the last few weeks my current employer has been the subject of much speculation in the press about a potential take-over. I work for a largish company that has had a lot of trouble of the last four years with finances and is now in the position where a take-over by someone bigger might be the best option.

However, where the hell does that leave me and the people that I work with? So far I’ve survived about eight redundancy phases and the almost total financial collapse of the company. I like working here and I enjoy my job but somehow this all seems even more like doomsday. Whoever ends up taking us over will no doubt chop off a large portion of the workforce and I really hope that I’ll still be here at the end of it all. There are no guarantees though, so I’ll just have to wait and see.

In the meantime I suppose I’d better update my CV just in case. Better safe than sorry.

  1. Whatever you do, particularly if you enjoy your job, hold out for the redundancy. I missed out on a fair chunk of redundancy when I left my last employer because I saw no realistic future there.

  2. I just got a new job only to find out they are restructuring (IE closing schools and making new ones) its gonna be tough.
