Yesterday I worked my last day at CS. I spent almost exactly three years there. I left mostly because I couldn’t get a raise, and someone else contacted me and offered me more. As soon as I resigned, I was offered more money. I wish employers would just pay people to start with. Now I feel like I should have resigned years ago (well, presumably less than three years ago).

The “someone else” is Altran, which is a huge service company. It’s going to be a totally different job (no more development, but high-level specification and analysis), which worries me and excites me. Will I like it? I’ll let you know.
