I lost my job this past June, they kept me around for 3 weeks then gave me severance until 8/31. It fucking sucked. Still does because I was blown away that they chose to get rid of ME. I worked in a group of 2 people. I thought the other guy was going to get canned because he kept screwing up and he was a bit volatile. One time even getting into a verbal altercation with a female major bank representative on the phone. Degrading her.
Anyway... just 2 days ago... guess what happens? They had to let the other guy go because he was creating friction in the office with our former boss and colleagues!
If they had just kept me everything would still be running smoothly.
Anyhow, my old boss was a douche and he picked apart every little thing I did in my review. Even though I did everything smoothly but quietly and he didn't appreciate that. I countered every little thing he nitpicked with facts but he said I was "deflecting."
I believe my old boss was a Narcissist and needed people to kiss his ass more than he needed people to run things smoothly.
It has costed me at least $50k in lost compensation to date. I got a new job at a lesser rate and it will cost me about $80k to $100k in total.
The amount of despair and stress I felt getting down to my last dollars I wouldn't wish upon anyone. Brutal experience. I've lost a lot.
I'm super miserable and pissed still about it.
