The VP of Engineering wanted me to give him a call. On said call, he wanted to say how much potential he feels I have within the organization if I stay.
Of course, the two "more-senior" people in our group absolutely aren't moving. So of course he could be saying this just to try and get me to move. Even though he prefixed said comment with "I know it won't have any affect on your decision."
Very suave, very political.
