Re: Do you like your job??

just out of an 80 minute interview here in London! was expecting it to be a half hour. Didn't arrive at the office here until noon practically!

verbally handed in notice. bizarrely, they'll pay out bonus if I leave on 1 Jan. I will receive the bonus in March
CFO wants to talk to me at 5 about the prospect of the move internally - not sure I'd want that. we just have an office with top guys, and then PAs. be a weird place to work.

Re: Do you like your job??

that's what I always thought. in which case I'd need to stay until end of may which I'm not willing to do. I'd rather leave first week in Jan.
