Quit sounds a bit violent. How about… I gave my 2-week notice. I’ve been with Miller & Associates for almost two years.
Other then a couple “hr type” problems I really had no reason to leave. The main reason I’m leaving is the benefits don’t work well for a “family” guy. Insurance for a family was a killer. Another reason I started looking was the commute was a beating. Since December I’ve been on a project that has me driving 70 miles a day. That’s about 2 hours, each day, in the car, and some expensive gas bills.
Obviously, I’ve said nothing negative about the company, my boss, or co-workers. That’s because there isn’t anything negative to say. My boss was one of the most understanding, fair managers I’ve ever worked for. He’s also, easily, the best “database guy” I’ve ever met. If you are a guy in the DFW area looking to work for a small consulting firm you should definitely consider Miller & Associates.
So where am I going???? Countrywide. I don’t really want to talk about the position and what I’ll be doing there until I start. I’m not sure what kind of rules they have about blogging about work stuff. What I can say is that my commute is going from 70 miles to 26 miles and Countrywide’s benefits appear to be top-notch. I start on Monday, 4/23/07. I’ll post more about the position after I get settled in and know Countrywide’s policies.
