The Insolvency Chronicles, Part 4

Posted on October 1, 2008

A little over two weeks after the bankruptcy and buyout, things at the office are slowly returning to a semblance of normalcy.

Just a semblance. We have been trying to resume our normal development schedule. The thing is, once your work ethic has been damaged (by not knowing if you’re going to be there tomorrow), it is very difficult to repair, and act like nothing ever happened. This I had to explain to my boss, as he asked me why I was running behind schedule with one of our applications.

Mergers and acquisitions are rarely ever seamless, especially when the two Firms are in such a similar line of business, separated by national boundaries and corporate culture. On the other hand, I have good reason to suspect that there is a good future for my career here, should I decide to stay. Who knows? The next few weeks won’t be easy. But an insatiable curiosity drives me to stick it out until the end of our story.
