Two months ago the director of our department quit. This was personally impactful for me, as he was an old friend and was the person who got me the entre to my company. His position still has not been filled.
In the mean time, life goes on. But this week my boss quit. So did another manager in our department, as well as a principle engineer. Chaos! Turns out their simultaneous resignations are all completely coincidental and uncoordinated. Nonetheless, it's going to be madness here for a while. Now there is no one between me and our VP, and he's not going to have nearly enough bandwidth to deal with my issues.
I'm also trying to hire a java web developer to work for me, and I can't seem to find any decent candidates. I guess I have unreasonably high standards - I expect software engineers to know the difference between a linked list and an array.
I still like my job, I'm just not looking forward to the next short while.
