Yep, I've started the new job now and all I can say is...WOW! I'm really digging it. I'm fitting right in with my co-workers and I'm getting right to work fixing their SMS environment. It shouldn't take too long to work out the bugs and have it chugging right along like it should be. I'm really happy about it and I hope I'll be an asset to the company regardless of what I'm working on.
Last week I decided it was time to move on from my current employer and accept a position elsewhere. It was a tough decision to make because I had been there a relatively short period of time and things were beginning to move in a positive direction.
Over all I've felt frustrated and incapable of affecting a positive change in the environment for some time now, but I was honest in my discussions with management and laid out my complaints and talked through possible solutions with them and I'm happy to see some good already being realized from it.
