I applied to a shop in KC tonight. It was a particularly frustrating day at the office, and my first time filling out an app in multiple years. The listing was written for my resume. In the cover letter, for the software referenced in the job listing, I walked through the specific data reports I would use to automate the most difficult sounding task in the job responsibilities list. It was satisfying.

Basically, I'm going to have to work with the douche that tried to position himself above me and the COO. For reasons I don't understand, the COO decided to keep him involved as a contributor. I did my best to stone face the situation, and didn't voice any disapproval, but was fooling no one. Felt like the beginning of the end of my ability to be honest and open with my boss.

Hopefully you get a little leverage through an offer.

I probably wouldn’t take the job unless the salary range on Glassdoor is like $30k light. I would love to work for our custodian, but I gotta think there’s a policy against hiring away talent from client firms like mine.

had an interaction with the other analyst today that makes me think he’s really starting to feel threatened by my work. Good stuff.

Big dog don't need to bark to let the other dogs know he owns the porch.

So, basically what happened was we had a meeting with the cfo, our boss, and two product managers (retail and business, which is important to note that I handle the retail side and the other analyst deals with the business side of things).

The meeting was more less just me showing off some models I built for the two product managers, not even realizing that I probably should have told the business lady to deal with the other analyst, and then another model I built to deal with interest rate changes. After that was done the other analsyt, our boss, and the cfo stayed and had a meeting about something that i wasn't party to so i left.

Afterwards I'm sitting at my cube and he walks by my desk, unnecessarily, to say good job (because he thinks hes my psuedo manager or something?) and so i grunt and go back to working and then i realize he's still standing there so I turn around and he shows me this sheet of some formula from our reporting software that he broke into 3 parts and told me how hard it was because of the parenthesses. And I'm just like, ha, i bet, and then he leaves.

Later, I stop by my bosses office to ask for some days off and he jokingly says something along the lines of "don't make your first version of these things so good because now everybody wants to give you more projects" and then says something about how the CFO was really impressed with those models. So, that makes me think they talked about them after I was gone which is why the other analyst was feeling really threatened.

You just have to avoid engaging the idiots, and your talent will wash everything else out. It’s not easy, but they will eventually see the lay of the land and stop being douchebags.

Yeah, I try to stay out silly office politics and to never complain about coworkers to other coworkers but sometimes I slip up and find myself telling somebody else how annoyed I am that someone gave me a project with only two hours to do it or whatever. Not a huge deal but also not a good look.

I like the watch but I like the idea of you spending $4k on a watch even more.
