There’s nothing like the good old days….
Just don’t get stuck there.
I joined a firm three years post-merger. That’s when I met the tall guy on the right.
When I started, pre-merger mugs, pens and paperweights were still being used with pride. It took two more years (and a post-merger mug!) for the pre-merger factions to give way.
That’s when it started to feel like my workplace. Not just a place where I happened to work.
Many workplaces later, I still have that post-merger mug. And my friendship with that guy on the right.
Yes, there’s nothing like the good old days. But know when to move on, what to take with you.. and what to leave behind.
