Today I saw that my old boss, Nicole was online with instant messenger. I sent her a message letting her know I enjoyed having her as a boss. We had a good chat. Before she left she said something interesting. She said something to the effect of, “You’ve put in some good work at Neutron. You shouldn’t feel bad about leaving to find something else closer to home.”
I have to admit its still on my mind. There is something about having Joel as a boss that just rubs me the wrong way. We don’t talk much anymore – especially casually.
I’ve been listening to an audiobook called Good to Great. It is a study of companies that went from good to great and sustained it for over 15 years. Listening to the things that these companies have in common, I have to wonder if Neutron will be a great company. With Joel as a VP I’ve sort of lost faith in Neutron. It just seems I’ve heard so many people in the company complain about him that I don’t see many people following him as a leader.
