The new work location is on the fifth floor of a building next to the prune yard in Campbell.

Very modern. Including the donuts which are from the crazy donut place.

First day at Humana is orientation in Phoenix.

2014/03/17

43K people is a lot of people employed in the health care/insurance industry.

The three story building in Glendale AZ was used for the orientation and training.

Alex the trainer gave me a tour of the building. Everyone at a desk on the phone. Some groups were noisy. The orders with pharmacy for example. The quietest group on the third floor is the “library” group, the pharmacy medical doctors that ensure the prescriptions are legally correct. I.e. Don’t kill any body.

Five years of Electric Cloud ends

2013/02/01

Today started with the most beautiful sunrise as seen on my way to work. So beautiful that I stopped and took a picture. Can’t say I’ve ever done that before, stopped and took a picture of a beautiful sunrise on the way to work.

It ended with me leaving Electric Cloud for the last time. Since being on probation things have not been the same for me at EC.

So today I was called into a conference room and told I was laid off. A lay off of one. EC was one of the best jobs I’ve had. Great people. Great customers and great products.

I’ll take it as an omen though. It was a beautiful sunrise – not a beautiful sunset!
