On a personal note...My wife just got let go
My wife was an admin for the president of a very large company. For the last few years she worked for him when he was CFO. They were a great team. He gave her high ratings every year and took her with him when he became president. She was thrilled to have the opportunity to support a president...especially HER PRESIDENT. I mean she had a relationship with this guy.
Today, he gave her a package but didn't even have the stones to do it himself. His HR person told my wife he wanted someone who had experience supporting a president. All this time...no feedback, no warnings....nothing. Bad management at it's finest.
This sucks! You know, if this happened to me, I'd be better prepared for it and more positive. I guess that I just feel protective over her and angry over the way she was treated by someone who she trusted. I love her so much and hate to see her in this kind of pain. I hate that she feels this betrayed.
If there is anyone in the Princeton, NJ area looking for a GREAT admin....
