Daddy still has a job…

23 01 2009

As we were busy getting everyone out the door this morning, Mark turned on his work email and discovered Microsoft was laying off 1,400 people today and 5,000 over the next 18 months. Yikes. We had heard rumors this was coming, but we went off for the day waiting for the emails to trickle down. Waiting to see if Mark still had a job.

Thankfully, by the end of the day, Mark had not received a meeting request. His manager did not call and invite him into the office for a chat with HR. Instead, his manager and his manager’s manager sent an email to let him know they are very pleased with the work he did on his most recent project.


Going on paternity leave for a month in this economy felt a little risky, but it looks like Mark’s job is secure for now. Thank you Jesus.
