Workplace motivation...

While waiting for my results from a final panel interview with a fortune 20 company, I sadly feel less and less motivated at my current job. After my interview, the PMs (project managers) stated that they loved my previous work and showed me around the building and where my team was going to be located. If I'm hired, I am to receive a packet in the mail by Tuesday regarding benefits packages and salary information. At my current job, I will put in my two weeks (one of them being paid vacation). This is to say they are basically paying me to get my items removed from my desk, train my replacement, and leave on good terms. However it is for a lack of a better word... boring. I now feel unmotivated when I goto the office. I have bent over backwards for the past 3 years for this company and they end up screwing me for the last 6 months. So I guess I have no REAL motiviation to work. I know in my mind that I already have gotten the job, so until I leave I am stuck twiddling my fingers and practicing my ping pong in the lounge.

Weekly Quote: Every morning, I get up and look through the 'Forbes' list of the richest people in America. If I'm not there, I go to work.

Interesting how companies that you bust your ass for can turn around and screw you when things are not as great as before. I guess that's why its called 'business!'
Anyway, congrats on the new job and good luck!

Congratulations on the new job! I just started my new job and I was in the same situation as you. Unfortunately, I had to stay for three weeks -- they were pretty clueless without me and needed to figure out how to do my job -- before taking one week for vacation and then returning to start the new job.

Good luck!
