The life of a defense contractor is never boring. Projects run out of money and engineers must shuffle off to a new/different project. New to them, sometimes new to the company and usually different from the project they just left.
Sometimes they have to find employment elsewhere. Like at a different company. Fortunately, that's not the case. This time.
Yes, I find myself caught in the never ending funding spiral. It's always feast or famine. Everyone must suffer eventually.
While I knew this was coming, I thought I had a job to jump too. Turns out I do. Just not the one I thought.
It seems that one manager thought another manager was going to keep me informed. As it turns out, neither told me anything. Each thinking that the other would take care of that. One of them (once notified, by me, of the error) referred to this as a "miscommunication". I'm thinking that my own characterization of it as a Mongolian cluster bleep, could be misconstrued. So I held my piece. And thought happy thoughts.
Don't know what I'll be working on come Monday. But at least I'm still employed.
