The new job is totally fabulous. Just to give you an idea of how pampered the chosen few are, the office kitchen is stocked with a fridge full of cans (coke, diet coke, 7-up etc), bread, milk, butter, fruit, cereal (including muesli), yummy-looking biscuits and various other snacks. The tab for the welcome lunch was picked up by the company.
My day of orientation was completely overwhelming. There are so many systems and processes - servers, sub-folders, chains of command, clients, abbreviations. IT tech support called and conducted training via teleconference and I also had a tele-meeting with the HR bigwig to discuss the contract and benefits package. Phew, I'm as high as a kite and can't wait to get back there, but also exhausted and OD-ing on information.
