Off To Wisconsin I Go!
It's about 10 minutes before I have to leave to go to the airport to fly to Wisconsin to meet my new boss and co-workers. The situation at Nature's Way is definitely changing.
Right now, I just wanted to write down some thoughts and feelings to see how they would contrast against what I think after-the-fact.
Right now, quite honestly, I don't know what to think. Nature's Way has been a heaven-send. Working in a 100% Linux environment that I created myself with my code, and my timeframes. The culture at Nature's Way has been one of efficiency, self-motivation, and management-when-necessary models. We get stuff done when stuff needs to get done, and everyone just does what they are supposed to. I couldn't think of a better way to create a "well-oiled-machine" type of environment. Very little red-tape, and freedom to do the best you know how.
I've really, really, really, really, really enjoyed my stay at Nature's Way, and, although I'm hoping for the best, "Shwabe North America" will really have to try, if they want to exceed what has been created at Nature's Way.
I'm going to Wisconsin with optimism, energy, and hope - mixed with a twinge of anxiety.
I'll keep you posted through the next few days.
