This is the first week at my new job. What is it? Well, it is the same as a job I had two years ago. I am back working at Ameriteach in the Denver area in Colorado. I am extremely glad to be back there. It is a great job working for great people and with more great people.
I finished up my work at Infocrossing on August 4th, took some time off to work on some other projects, did some contract work, and then it was time to start the new job.
It has been a little over two years since I started working for Infocrossing, and it was a difficult decision to make. When I started with the company, our name was (i)Structure and we were owned by Level(3). It was an interesting situation because we were making good money, but Level(3) was sucking wind.
Level(3), in their infinite wisdom, sold us to Infocrossing. It was a good match, for Infocrossing. We both specialized in outsourcing of infrastructure. We kept bumping heads in the market place. In fact, some of us feel that Infocrossing bought us because we were always kicking their asses when it came to acquiring new business.
Anyways, after the buyout, I told myself I would give it 6 months to a year and evaluate whether I would move on or not. I really hadn't gotten to the point where I was not happy, so I never started that evaluation process.
About 8 months had passed since the buy out, and I got a call from Ameriteach. I used to work there as a trainer and loved it. Well, they asked me to consider coming back to work for them. I jumped at it. OK, to be truthful, I took a few days. I am so loving being back in the classroom full-time and ramping up on the latests and greatest Microsoft technologies once again.
I am really going to miss everyone at Infocrossing. They have some great people and some fantastic managers. To them, I will always wish for the best.
As to my new bosses, I truely think the world of them and I am so glad they wanted me back again. It is a great feeling!
