Ok so thoughts....

Do you leave a job that you've been at for 3 years where you enjoy 50% of the work you do and the other half you tolerate. A place that pays extremely well but eveyone you enjoy talking to has either left or been let go of? Also, do you stay if the main boss has stepped down as manager but continues to hold an interest in the company?

Some of the many thoughts I have been having lately...

Mrs Dove -- if you like half the work, and don't actually hate the coworkers, and the money adds to your lifestyle, I say stick with it for awhile. You may learn to like the new coworkers, and liking half the work is pretty much as good as most of us can expect (yes, there are people who love their work 100%, and people who love all their coworkers and bosses. They're very rare, and expecting that is like expecting to like everyone in your family and everyone they marry, or expecting to like everyone in any organization/club you join. For most of us it isn't going to happen). It may just be a bump in the landscape that you'll get over after awhile. IF you were in a real rut, I'd say "MOVE ON", but you've only worked there a few years, so make sure the new landscape will be something you like before quitting.

Yes Claire - I have been thinking a lot along your lines also. I guess my main "concern" is that about 2 years ago we lost a major line of business and had major layoffs - I survived purely on the fact that I could do the work in 2 different departments. Now they have lost another part of the business (which won't affect my line of work at all) and let more people go and because I am the only one in the legal department now (my boss is in CA - permanently) I can't talk to anyone else at work about work stuff. The legal stuff is confidential and the partners have made it clear that I am not to share what is going on with anyone else so I am pretty limited with my friends at work. One of the reasons for that is because when I do start to make friends they start to probe about the the legal stuff. Oh well, they do pay me really well and I do like half the work quite a bit.

Who needs friends at work?
