    You should feel sad for the other guy who is being let go. icon_sad.gif First off is why is he being let go. Does he have his CCNP or CCIE? icon_eek.gif Is this an economic/business decision (ie he cost to much; he makes too much money) or he did something wrong to get the ax? icon_mad.gif

    What really burns, is when someone is let go because they are not holding "their load" of the the work, yet 2 week later, the employer hires two people to replace them.

    He built the entire network, ground up. A damn smart guy. They just did not want to pay him his salary anymore. Hes a good friend of mine & I feel horrible for even mentioning it - I whacked my previous post. He already has another job lined up & hes starting his own LLC. I'm sure I will be doing some work with him in the future. :D

    Good for him and his new job. Sometimes things happen for the best.


    That's why I will probably stay with a Government job for a while. You have job security. They just can't let you go like a private company can.

    Governemnt Job Pros: (Civil Service)

    Secure Job (Civil Service Position)
    Execellent Health Benefits
    Lots of time off :D
    Nice budget
    Nice Retirement Package
    Decent pay icon_confused.gif

    Cons:

    You can probably be making an extra $5k-$6,000 a year more in a private Industry position.

    Viper, that sounds like a great stable job. I've always worked for independent companies & listen to people in all departments complain about their job, health care, money, vacation, -everything. I figure I've got 4 years a System Admin for a large corporation, I’ll get my experience with Cisco gear on the resume, cert up & cancel out all the bitching by earning my own income with a base in networking & flush that money into other things that will bring me revenue. Man, I hate someone holding my check,. If I want more money, I'll just get more business. I would rather work 65 hours for myself than 40 for someone else.
