Well, I saw the writing on the wall. New CEO, bringing in his own peeps. To clarify, I'm a sales manager. My CEO wants to bring in one of his guys to run the team and put me back into an individual contributor role. My salary stays exactly the same, but I will no longer be running the team. It's weird, I always talk about how much I hate managing people...my team in particular, but it's kind of like the guard in the prison joining general population. My ego is also going to be bruised over the fact that I have been constantly at war with Marketing for years, and now those horrible little bitches get to sit there and see that I've been stripped of any power. I'm trying to decide if I go in to negotiate a severance package, of if I suck it up and stay put. I make pretty good money and with the economy tanking I can't help but be a little concerned. Thoughts?
