Well, I am not an idiot. The first few days were stressful because the predecessor was so unhappy (but of course he was oblivious to his unhappiness that was shown towards his job and to me). Thereafter, it was intolerable. Everyday there is nothing to do except surf net. I even planned my japan trip itinerary using three full days!! And no one even said anything. Except they wonder why I am so quiet and able to sit at my cubicle the whole day. The company is a large-cap company but this role is super screwed up. Its parent company was apparently even worse. When I met up with the predecessor again who moved on to parent company for my last day temporary hand-over, he was telling me the parent company's team doing the same work as him was like a team of highly-paid secretaries. To pay so much for a team just to arrange meeting, it is sad.
I moved subsequently to a start-up and true enough, I did get to do more meaningful jobs. However, the owner of the boss was super hilarious in a scary way. With no idea how to run a creative business, she actually poured in money to set up Singapore, China and India offices. I am keen to find out how it goes. Believe it would be a bumpy ride from now on.
