Sitting here midway through day two, i gotta say, EUI (I had UM, there, oops, was talking about them, guess the initials stuck in my brain. UM is certainly a cool group too, but not my employer, LOL) is a pretty damn cool place. Coming in to say hi to the crew i already knew I never got a feel for the rest of the company. Dealing with Marketing for 360|Flex I knew them already through emails. Now they’re my colleagues.
The first thing that truly struck me is the size of EUI. I’ve known these guys for over a year now, and always thought of them in terms of the people I initially met, so EUI was always Andy, Tony, Drew, Brook, Anthony. Then Juan came along and made it all a happy family. Then I started dealing with Rebecca and Catherine, as they haranged Tom and I for a decision on who’s been approved as a speaker for our latest 360|Flex.
That’s barely a 10th of the EUI crew! There’s arond 70ish folks here, doing some really cool things!
I’m in the process of finding out what I can talk about and such, which sadly isn’t everything! Some things are under strict embargo (WEAK) on talking about them. What ya gonna do?
As I sit in on meetings and breifings and such here, meeting my new colleagues, I’m getting more and more excited to bring what we’re doing to the forefront more. You thought Ebay desktop rocked? You ain’t seen nothing!
