Moving On Up, To the Eastside

Yesterday was a good day, I was officially promoted to Senior Administrator late in the afternoon.  Same job, a little more pay, but mainly recognition by my employer that they appreciate my performance.  That is always a great feeling and a great way to start the weekend.

How will that change my day-to-day routine?  It will not, except maybe that I will walk a little taller and have a bounce in my step.  It is interesting to note that there have been rumblings of creating additional pay grades so that technical people like myself can advance further without going into management.  However, if that does not happen then I have reached the proverbial glass ceiling as I prefer to be a DBA instead of  a manager, to be honest.

I truly cannot see myself at the same pay grade for the rest of my career.  Money isn’t everything, but raises on a regular basis say that you appreciate me and my work and that you value my performance.  Always the optimist, I think everything will work out for the best, so no worries.

Enjoy your weekend!
