    They said that's what is done in management positions. That was it. Not two words from my department head.

    Well. I guess that's modern corporate America for you.

    It's hard not to get political about this one.

New job is a big step up in pay at a college here in FLA. I cleaned out my stuff last weekend as I thought just maybe they would pull something like this. The department head is very petty and arrogant and my immediate supervisor is incompetent and I am not sure why he is there. He knows nothing about horticulture.

    I'm disappointed on how your former place treated you; as a disposable cup. Most place treat their employees that way, unfortunately.

    I am happy to hear you're in a better paying position. You deserve it.

    Tell the the old management to take a leap into the lily pads.

    As a business owner once an employee tells me they are moving on, I show them the door.

    Not because I am a jerk of a boss or a jerk of a person, but once a person has made their mind up to move on, their mind is on their new job and not on the job I am paying them for.

    You took a new job for a reason. Move on if you think the grass is greener and be glad they paid your severance.

    Your employer owes you nothing more than the salary they paid you for your work. And, it sounds like they did that.

    Put yourself in their shoes for a minute and ask yourself if you'd want a disgruntled employee to continue to work for you while they have this other job lined up. Why would I want that person to continue to work for me and tell other employees about their new job and how good it will be and how bad it is here working for me? That is one problem I as an employer do not need.

    There are two sides to this story people. I hope I was able to shed light on the side of the employer.

    Congratulations on the new job, Joe. Just remember: everything ends badly, otherwise, it wouldn't end. Best to focus on the new opportunity in front of you.

    And now my former employer had to deal with the fallout of the badwill they demonstrated by going about this the way they did. The place was not some cutthroat insurance sales place or whatever, it was supposed to be all touchy feely and nice. Its all good and I'm moving on to what should be a new challenge and a better working environment. The bump in pay and perks doesn't hurt either.
