Unless you have some sort of inside info that you'd like to share, you don't have a clue.

My bad then. You did mention who you worked for. Didn't think it takes a brain surgeon to figure out what type of business it is and what their function is.

Can you provide a link for that?

I would not post up personal information. Sorry :(

You never answered my question the other day about my company. You said you would not want to work there because of something you have read about it. What was that?

If I posted it, then it wasn't too personal. Unless of course, I didn't really post it, so you don't have a link at all.

Well, that's clear anyway.

Meetings aren't about being needing to feel important. The meetings I've had today - and many of them I have - are with small groups and are fairly productive.

As a decentralized organization, meetings are important to our operations so that we can get some consistency across campus, get information from others that might be facing similar issues, etc, etc.

And nothing replaces that personal connection. Many of the things I'll discuss with my employee at 3:30 we could do via phone - but as her manager, that personal check-in and conversations go a long way toward a good working relationship. It's much more difficult for me to have a true handle on my department if I only ever deal with them via phone, IM or email.

You did but I just don't feel like finding it right now......

An edit to my question....

From what I've heard, and read about that company, it's not a place that *I* would want to work. But hey, if one just wants to put in her 8hr day, then I'm sure it's great.

What have you heard and read and where did you hear these things besides on this messageboard? Please do tell....
