I’m at the end of my second day of work at Raytheon. I’m sitting in the “Training Pod” waiting for my security clearance to come through, a process that can take weeks (or months, in some cases). Of course, when it finally does come through, I won’t be able to tell you what I’m working on. In the meantime, the Training Pod is a little dull, at least until I get a non-classified project to help out with. It turns out that one of my cubicle-mates is a fellow Quark refugee. I would say “small world,” but then again, they did lay off almost 90% of the U.S. staff.
On the plus side, I have a window, which won’t be the case once I’m assigned to a classified project. Too bad the view outside is so ugly today.
