The workplace drama continued in spades yesterday, as the two departing study coordinators sent a super nasty letter accusing out clinical trials director of incompetence. Lots of maneuvering, and the upshot is that our clinical trials director has been relieved of his duties, we’ve brought in a new temporary director, we’ll be working on hiring a new full time director, and we have to hire a bunch of new staff. All while my boss is getting ready to leave town so he can take care of his aging parents.
Bad feelings all around, but at least I was able to remain relatively detached and be of service. I’m hoping today will be quiet, now that my boss is gone. I’m totally uncertain of how to explain this situation to job applicants when they come in for interviews. I want to give them a clear picture of the situation but don’t want to scare them off. Argh. The whole thing just exhausts me.
But it is the last day of work before a four-day weekend, which is a big brightside!
