Ups & Downs
It has been a roller-coaster week of stress. On Tuesday we had an all-company meeting, the topic of which was top secret until we arrived. I actually knew some of what was going on thanks to Kris being management & all, but people were seriously wigged out all day. So what's going on? We are in the process of being sold to a big, public corporation. This isn't a big surprise to people, AMG has been on the market for the entire time Kris has worked there (6+ years). And the company that is buying us seems to be genuinely interested in preserving the company culture as much as possible. However, it is a big transition with lots of small unknowns that are causing big stress for most of us. Especially since the sale will most likely be finalized around Christmas and they have stated there will be a few "redundancies". Thankfully I know my job is safe and we have had assurances that Kris' position is safe as well. But nothing is finalized yet and I'll not be easy until it is.
