So my job has not been really anything worth writing home about
since I started here 3 years ago...but it was no travel versus my old job so it seemed like a good trade off. The day I got back from Hawaii...I was told my job descript
ion and my boss was being changed---welcome home!
My current boss I have known since before 1994. He knows about my CD, he is very flexible and he knows what I can do and that I will get the job done. My new boss will be the guy that used to be over my boss but knows nothing---he is the reason dozens of people have left the company (no exaggeration). I have no respect for him (nor does most of the company) and I know anything good I do he will take the credit. He is a micro manager (which I do not respond to) and I know my tasks will fail as I wait for him to decide what font we should use (literally this has happened to me before with him). Two trusted people hint that this may not last long, but I can't just wait for something that might be two to three years from now.
So...I am very stressed out and I am job searching. The market stinks and almost age 48 is old to start something new. Maybe I'll win the lottery for my birthday this month???? Just really stressing out. I also am pretty much the sole bread winner of the family and the insurance holder. And I am still dealing with Dad's esatate issues. Stressed. Guess what...my gut was just starting to feel better yesterday and now I am in pain again and my face is burning up.
I saw a few things that are worth a good resume and follow up. So...an opinion question would be what kind of salary decrease would you consider reasonable to "get out"? I am considering up to a 12% decrease.
