Things That Are Bothering You, Got You All Hibbeldy-Jibbeldy, or just downright pissed, RIGHT NOW! - Page 5003

I did a study once on the cost of attrition for my company (I did it to justify the cost of some employee investments I wanted to do that I thought would reduce attrition). It cost us the equivalent of a couple of hundred K, including opportunity cost, business disruption, and the cost of training your replacement. So no - it would be very hard for me to hire someone that I knew for sure was only going to stay a year.

Acknowledging of course that GF said he was looking to transfer within a year, not quit. This is more of an academic discussion now anyway

No because Princeton Law is prestigious and counts among its noteworthy almuna one Ms. Conne Mara

Sorry to hear that, Joffrey.

It's probably HR's fault. /Jon

The sciences are really weird about churning employees. Hiring postdocs for 2-3 year terms and then just grinding the life out of them is routine. I seriously doubt it's an optimal scenario, since it usually takes a year or so to become productive then you bust ass for another year or two to get as much done as possible then disappear. But it's necessary to fit within the totally artificial hiring constrains of the budgets we get. Easier to hire a revolving series of temporary people than any permanent people.

Nope. I had a 2nd interview and apparently it went to some kind of internal lateral hire. The only consolation is I'm happy with my performance plus it was out of my hands.

I'm so glad I don't have a real job. All this HR shit would be exhausting.

Defense Attorney isn't a real job?

Ever since I han seen Wolf Blitzer out himself as a complete fucking moron on Jeopardy I can't stand his face. He should have lost his job for that.

I recently helped my parents stain their deck and not even two weeks later, the local birds have shat all over it. Fucking hell, I hope they get all eaten by the local hawks.

It was really shameful to witness.

Why was Wolf Blitzer being a moron a surprise? The way he would just stand there and stare blankly while talking about a subject or ask completely irrelevant questions. It was like he was always just reading from a script.

Not surprised that he sucked but surprised that he sucked that badly. He only comes on my radar when he says dumb things about foreign policy but I figured he would at least know that Jesus was born in Bayt Lahm.

You should probably make a Wolf Blitzer thread.
