My work is trying really hard to retain me. I've even had the founder/chairman of the parent company reach out to me. It definitely feels good to be so wanted, but also fuck them for not caring before now. It really is very bittersweet.
The only thing they care about is the loss of revenue or extra work for them your leaving will trigger.
At the end of the day, this is true.

It's one of several reasons why i prefer public over private sector.
I feel you though there are a lot of public service jobs which are shitty from top to bottom. Usually the jobs with lesser educated people.

i really enjoy working for a not-for-profit/learned society. it’s the best of both worlds. when i resigned from my salaried/team position, they genuinely did want to keep my experience/expertise.

Here at Hogwarts a 50 year old man yelled at me.

You can either get into posturing confrontations with children or grown-ass 50-year-olds, I guess. You're (we're) not dead, so there's that.

I told the guy he couldn't cut the lunch line.

Honestly why would u even bother those kids over something like cutting in a lunch line. I know teaching kids right from wrong and discipline ends up falling into the hands of teachers but it's not even worth it with kids like that. There's plenty of stories of kids in the ghetto beating the shit out of other students or faculty.

I know you do karate or whatever but realistically speaking a big black teen from the ghetto that's higher T with more built up rage than you would pummel you in a fight. Brain damage is not worth trying to prove a point

Whenever students get away with anything, people are like "where's the teachers, other staff?" Then when someone actually does something you see a bunch of dismissive comments about whatever the situation was short of weapons being drawn.

I like Harry Potter cosplay.

Work hard on your Snape act. Stop washing your hair, and wear a black cloak. Ten points to Slytherin.

When in college I joined a Harry Potter club.

If any of your students act up, just take away their quidditch privileges. Two months of detention in the dungeons.

That edit is way less detailed than your original post.

Only a few hundred words shorter.

My current employer countered with a director role, $20k more salary than the offer I signed, and a new reporting structure where my direct report is someone in Taiwan instead of the clown I currently report to.

If they came back with that offer a week ago I would have seriously considered staying. You snooze, you lose.

They also tried to strong arm me by saying I had to make the decision by tomorrow at 9am. Ok, simple- I appreciate the offer but decline. Sorry!

good move. i think it's good to change your life after this hellscape pandemic anyway. everyone is tired and burned out.

you'll be refreshed in a new place with new colleagues.

I am happy for you but you could have used that $20,000 to pay for yacht club fees.

The salary I am sliding into is more than enough to live comfortably on. I will be fine and this really sets me up to retire at 60 at the very latest.

Extra money to stay rarely works, the same irritations and frustrations remain.
I think four years in any company is about right.

Yeah totally. It also made its way back to my current boss that he is a big part of why I'm leaving, and he is a pretty powerful person within the corporate structure, so that pretty much sealed the deal for me. If I were to stay I would have a target on my back, and he's a fucking snake. Still, I appreciate that they were willing to do something to make me happy. They are mad they will lose all the institutional knowledge. Not my fault!

Hopefully my company is about now realising how much work and delay they have on their plates having booted me.

I don't feel good about leaving so quickly. In a perfect world I would have 4 weeks to properly transition all my job functions and interview candidates to replace me, but a perfect world we do not live in. I feel bad for my team members who not only will have to suck up a bunch of my work, but also deal with the fact there is no one blocking them from the stupid whims of the management team. I truly did provide a lot of coverage so that they could execute their jobs without having to face that pressure.

I did that and more, looking after the people around me and not being a groveling sycophant is probably what got me cancelled.

Everyone knows this, including the CEO, whether he gives a shit I don't know. He can't be in any doubt the managers are shitbags because I laid it all out for him. I'm hoping they now lie to him about it.

Tiny fists of rage waved but there we go.

You were fired Dilbert? I am sorry that happened to you. So hard.

Please let me know if you need someone to talk to. There is no permanent solution to a temporary problem.

Nah 'contract ended'. I'm fine, don't worry about me.
Besides free money it was nice to get out of the house and use the workshop machines - the workshop manager has said I can come and use them under the radar.

I knew it was going to be shit when the new GM took over, I worked for him before and knew he was a colossal cunt - I used those exact words to describe him to the retiring GM, which disappointed him a little as he saw his legacy turning to shit.
Should probably have quit at that point but the money was too easy and him being an ADHD cretin I knew he wouldn't be interested in the business unit I was working on so I'd have complete freedom - which I did for a year which was nice.

As expected he acted like a complete cunt, I may break him just for that - which I can do.
I'm hoping he/his family buys out the business unit, then they'll be ruined.
I'll give it a year and see what happens, I think its all going to turn to shit without my help.
