This is a post from Adam Baker, founder of Man Vs. The more you simplify your financial life, the easier it is to dominate it.
Here we go… 1. I was laid off and now my manager wants my help I was recently laid off on a Thursday morning with no notice and was basically perp walked to HR.
Would it be best to just not reply? Ooooh, your company really mishandled this. But contacting you for work help afterwards?
If that was the case here, you should honor that.
Otherwise, you have no obligation to respond. My role was to open and then manage a new sales office. As part of my very, very generous package, my employer purchased a lovely SUV.
All expenses are covered, and I can even have a driver if I want. The last time was when I returned home, about six months ago. He said he would consider the issue, but he never got back to me. A couple of months later, I submitted a formal proposal regarding selling the car and explaining that I rarely use it for work purposes, but again there was no response.
He prefers the status quo and wants me to be able to easily visit clients. He also likes the idea of me having it for contingency arrangements.
In my formal proposal, I provided very workable suggestions for resolving these problems. At the end of the day, I know he just wants me to keep the car. I am about to return home for another round of in-person meetings with my boss.
Should I raise it again? Or am I sounding ridiculous? Some perspective would be helpful. Yes, you should raise it — but differently this time.
Given that, what makes sense? I manage about 15 events every 12 weeks each event being days long and am in charge of every aspect of the events on-site logistics, travel, venue accommodations, food and events, agenda and educational sessions, sponsors, speakers…the list goes on.
I am always knee-deep in multiple events and traveling a lot, so quitting would mean dropping many events mid-planning or right before event time. Manager is blocking my internal transfer I work as at a leading worldwide pharmaceutical company as an administrative assistant.
I have been with the company for 10 years and am highly regarded here. Recently there have been some changes and instability in the specific franchise I report to.
This would be a lateral move, but the new team was so happy for me to join that they were able to offer me a small raise to make the change.
Last night, I was informed that the head of the franchise I currently report to refuses to release me. I have been in my role for over five years and have fulfilled my time commitment which was only a year. It makes me feel like a piece of property!
What you can do is go get a different job outside your company. Some companies do let managers block internal transfers — which is terribly short-sighted, because it just means that the person will be pissed off and leave the company altogether, which is what you should do wait until you find another job though.
If you want, before you do that you can try pushing back with your franchise head or asking your manager to do it on your behalfpointing out that this is disincentivizing you from staying with the company. At the end of last year there was some restructuring at my very small company:Free Restaurant, Cafe, and Bakery Sample Business Plans.

Another amazing and dead on post. Natalie, I have been subscribing to your blog/posts for maybe a year, can’t recall. BUT everything you say seems to be exactly what I need to hear, learn, consider, admit, etc.
