Unfortunate Leaver

A colleague I have been working with for almost 5 years handed in his notice today which is really bad news for everyone except himself. We'll be losing a top member of the team and a good bloke to boot.

It's an unfortunate side effect of the extremely high pressure project that a few of us are working on currently. Most of the guys are being pushed harder than I have ever seen before (luckily I am only on the fringes so have escaped a lot of the worst effects) and to make things worse they're being given very little support by their "managers" who keep on agreeing increasing deliverables and shrinking timescales.

You know things are getting bad when copies of Death March start appearing on peoples desks.
