This is going to be a rather hard post to right because there is only so much I can say on this subject. I’m not strictly bound by confidentiality or anything like that, but talking too much might not be the smart thing to do. Not that I’ve ever let myself talk the the point where it got my in trouble before. Heaven forbid.
What I can say is that I continue to be thankful that I work with fantastic people. As a whole they are very kind and giving. Incredibly warm and sincere people. They are one of the reasons my workplace has been a joy.
But I worry.
Because a workplace that wants you to remain with them longterm is not the same as a workplace that is building a place for you longterm. And it is too early to truly tell which of the two my current employer is.
I’m 35 years old. I have a wife, a son, two pets and a writing habit. My workplace is a joy, but I don’t know if it will ever fulfill its promised intentions. And that is a disappointment.
