I'm the boss!

Just wanted to share my cool day...

Today, the CEO of my company called me and told me that based upon my good performance, they would like to offer me a position as engineering manager, obviously with a significant pay increase. Of course I said yes!
This adds to last november, when they raised my salary in an also very significant way.

Bottom line, today (at age 27) I'm the leader of a group of engineers, only one of them younger than me, and I'm making twice as much as 6 months ago...without ever asking for a raise!!!

I guess working your ass off eventually pays

You must have kissed some major @ss! J/King.

Your lucky that you have a job where they appreciate your hard work.

Re: I'm the boss!

Truth is...recognition isn't something I expected. I left my previous job about 1 1/2 years ago, because not only I wasn't recognized...the bastards didn't even pay every month!!!

I guess I have to be grateful, after a really lame period (including the bad job experience above and a huge spine problem then surgery which really f'd 2 years of my life), things are finally looking REALLY great for me.

PS: some brown-nosing is always good (J/K)
PS2: yes, this means more guitar cash!!!

Re: I'm the boss!

Nice to know that hard work does pay off

Sounds like someone's gonna be able to indulge in some GAS aquisitions...
