Black Wednesday

I like the company I work for. They are very generous with salaries, benefits, and bonuses. They also see the big picture and work to reduce their carbon footprint and promote climate control. My own job is a big snore, but I really can't complain (although I do).

Recently IT has been suffering through a long reorganization, starting from the top. It's a big company, so we peons had not been impacted by the decisions made thus far. That is, until today, when three co-workers in our office were ushered out the door, part of the 100+ being severed worldwide.

I think my job is safe, for now. My name is attached to several IT applications, plus my team is somewhat protected by a non-IT person of repute. But you just never know.
