Extremely skeptical. The business model appears to be staggering, while the powers-that-be are making the all out push for the IPO finish line, in a flailing, try-anything sort of way. Morale is grim, gallows humor abounds, layoffs and data breaches (check the headlines) are "no big deal", good people are getting while the getting is good. No es muy bueno.

If I left, it would be to start a new position that does not involve taking so many inbound calls from upset customers. While it can be rewarding, I would prefer to use my phone skills in reception or be off the phones completely in a writing position, which would utilize the professional skills I learned in college.
