Quick update

The new job is going really well. I had my first wireframe review with my boss yesterday. I came armed with Visio wireframes and a sheet detailing what I changed and why. I comped three different approaches and gave her a quick run-down on the pros and cons of each. I probably talked a little bit faster than normal, and at the end told her everything was negotiable and asked her if she had any questions. After my experience at my last contract I expected an earful, with borderline accusations about whether or not I was qualified to even do my job.

“Questions? No. Looks great!” she said. “Pass this on to the other project members. Good job.”

Holy shit … maybe it wasn’t me at the last job after all. Crazy ex-boss-lady. >

    About time they recognized your brilliance. Congratulations on what sounds like a great settling in. In regards to corporate culture –

    I find that a lot of people fall into a kind of funk in large environments. But, if you can snap them out of the funk, you can actually get to know the real them. But it can take some work. Was part of the reason back at W&M I always made eye contact, smiled, and said hello to strangers walking about.

    Rock on laddy, and I hope to see you soon.

    Thanks for the update. Nice to see things moving along swimmingly. BE THE CATALYST for corporate change. The poor little corporate slaves need someone to come in and show them the way.

    Sounds pretty sterile, as you say, but I’m so happy you’re working for a sane boss! And I think Ed and IRS are right, that maybe there’s hope you can shape your environment.
