Hi John,

Having recently made the transition from working wither for myself or a small company to working for a Household Name Corporation, I can tell you that the culture shock - and shock in general - is something to expect.

In my last small company, when I reported for work my first day I had a cubicle all set up and was greeted by our full time computer support guy who had already set up my computer, walked me through the process for booting up and logging on to the network, had all the pre-assigned passwords written on sticky notes, and had already set up my phone and voice mail.

When I started for MegaCorp, it took three weeks for my computer to arrive (and MegaCorp MAKES computers), and I had to do just about all the setup and installation. There was no staff computer technicians on the site where there are over 1000 employees. The phone hookup took another long period of time to get set up, and even getting a decent chair to sit in took weeks of my time. And all tech support calls - even to get a chair - were routed through the call center in India.

But on the other hand, the checks don't bounce and there's no reason to fear that they'll have to fire someone down the hall to make payroll next month.

Hang in there!

John G
