After the initial excitement of a new job opportunity wears off, a listener begins to wonder if this move was the right move after she is confronted with an unfortunate reality check underneath the surface. It turns out things are a little bit different behind the scenes than what was presented during the interview. She asks, should I stay long term? Her question is below.

I started a new job recently. I was made aware there was a restructuring prior to my hire, however I did not realize how many people it impacted. Now that I’ve started the job it seems like a bigger deal than I realized. My direct report was one of the people who was laid off with 30 days notice. In those 30 days most (not sure if everyone) who were laid off were given a new job in the restructure. From my understanding the sales team was not rehired, and we now have a very small outside sales team.
I realize that I could have potentially probed a bit more during the interview process regarding the restructure. But, I feel blindsided by some of the other things and the current climate in the office. It has made me feel like I potentially made the wrong move of working here. I don’t plan on jumping ship, but would this be the type of situation that would warrant leaving after a year?
