I just celebrated my 10 yr. anniversary with my company.
I've been very pleased with everything up to this point.

We recently had significant management changes.

A co-worker of mine, whom I'm not at all hesitant to admit is the hardest working person I know, recently served notice that he's moving to a different department. After a year of formal notices about his workload he's tossing in the towel and moving on to an identical job that pays more but has half of the responsibility - again, within the same company.

This guy regularly works weekends and evenings keeping over 200 people's computers in order along with email, 20 servers, and additional responsibilities.

He's leaving because he just doesn't feel he's capable of doing a good job with that work load - he's always putting out fires - he's quality conscious and running around like a crazy person doesn't work for him.

Here is the kicker: They're thinking of hiring two guys to replace him.

I'm saddened by all of this because I consider the loss of a hard working, knowledgeable, peaceful fellow who respectfully asks for help being forced out of his position because management didn't care to be a MAJOR RED FLAG that our change in management may very well destroy what was once a great work environment.

Obviously, the change in management has been a switch from proactive to reactive - and after 10 years of never even considering looking for another job I'm starting to see the writing on the wall. I've had bad management before. I won't subject myself to that again.
