Here's the situation. I've been accepting recruiters invites, but haven't gotten very far in any interviews.
My VP called me today and asked if I had an offer on the table. I said no, but have been talking to companies (He previously mentioned his intent to reorganize the sales team and promote me).
He goes on to say that part of the reorganization is reduction in head count. He wants me in this role but if I'm going to quit he'd ask me adult to adult to take the role and stop him from firing someone.
I said there's nothing that has progressed to serious. He sighs and said I wish you would have just lied and told me you weren't looking.
So I obviously ask Do I need to worry about my job? He says yes and then we spend 45 minutes talking about how he can get me interviews for better roles and higher paying roles with his PE firms but our company probably will never be what keeps me happy. We just don't have the tech our product team to crack F500 companies.
Anywho he apologized if he was going to ruin my weekend but come Monday someone is getting fired and someone is getting promoted.
I'm guessing this is a first. Anyone ever experience something this wild?
