So, company was purchased. Work has been drying up, state will be cutting funding that directly impacts one of the main projects in which I am involved, and recently four of my six coworkers have found other employment. The other guy hasn't been in the office in the past month and today is the last day for one of the four so going forward I will be the lone employee occupying a 4000 sq ft office building. I find out that the project that I was going to become a part is going to be cutting positions instead of adding them. At this point it looks like I have been left standing when the music has stopped.
I had an interview with another unit of the new company that has a number of openings on a geographically dispersed team but, they are interviewing a number of candidates and I don't have direct experience with some of the technology. Another avenue that may pan out is my PM that left called me yesterday to tell me to apply for a position with his new company to which I did. We'll see but, it looks like I need to seriously start looking for a new position.
All while in the midst of D. fuck fuck fuckity fuck. No way in hell will I be able to keep the house if I don't have a job that pays decently. WW has already signed a lease and will be moving reasonably soon; that's a plus.
I hate this. If I wasn't down the rabbit hole I would have someone to trust and rely on and talk about this stuff.
Don't make anyone a priority when you are only an option.
