Yesterday, one of my direct reports put a resignation notice, and I am upset – you can’t even imagine how. He is leaving for personal reasons, nothing against the company or me. But I am more upset than I thought I would be because I just got one more person on the team, and just onboarded him. With holidays in between, I only had about a week of normal life. Only for about a week, I felt like I have all the team members on place, and it will be normal work, not overworking.
Now we are back again to the job posting, interviewing, possibly waiting for visa transfer, onboarding, and God knows what else. And meanwhile, all of us have more work to do. Three years and nine months of working understaffed.
