Ugh. Work is turning into a shit show. We recently had some pretty big transition at the top, and new leadership doesn't seem to be particularly adept at managing the personnel side of things.
Lots of people are leaving, yet no one seems to see any reason to fill open positions, so all that work is falling to those of us who are still here. I have no problem with this in the short term. Turnover happens, and you can't always fill spots as quickly as you'd like. I get that, and I'm happy to help pick up the slack. But there are no indications that this is a short-term issue. This feels like management is just in no hurry to move on anything. Positions are being left open for months while the rest of us do our best to cover them and our own jobs. To make matters worse, there was zero cross training, and a lot of us are being asked to cover work that's way outside of our expertise/interest. I'm doing work that, if I'd been told it was a possibility when I was hired, would have been a deal breaker for me.
Plus, there has been a bunch of butthurt over potential internal selections to fill empty positions. This is leading to bitchiness and/or overcompensation by people who think they're going to be passed over, and they're starting to way overstep their bounds as a result.
I hate to say this, because I took this position with a long view thinking I'd put in a fair bit of time and grow from there, but it might be time to knock the dust off the resume.
