    My 2020 resolution was not to answer questions to an employer I left 7yrs ago.

    I still get weekly calls or texts asking questions about how/why...

    It doesn't seem to be getting me a job offer to return though
    That needed to be a resolution?

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Some people need to learn that "highly valuable/critical" =/= "irreplaceable".

    3/10, very replaceable. The only reason I'm not a 1, is because it would take them at least a week for my replacement to get permissions, and another week to learn the environment.

    Im 100% replaceable.

    Where I get some of my job security is with the position I hold and area that I oversee, the relationships with our partners is a very important part. To sever these without having another person in place that has been trained by the outgoing position would effect my company greatly. That being said, nothing is certain. My position is important but I, as an individual, not as much. I just work as hard as I can to grow our business and validate my role and salary every year.

    Yup.

    Wasn't bad when it was an excuse to check in with old friends... But started to be random strangers demanding info they could look up easily...

    I did that a couple years when old colleagues were still there. Once they are all out and company keep calling, I start billing before answering anything. It stops really quick. It's not my fault that you fumble succession/transition plans.

    replaceability is usually correlated to compensation. All things being equal the highest paid people are usually the ones that are harder to replace.

    It's why CEOs and pro athletes get paid so much.
    All still replaceable.
    Only an ignorant person would think that they're not. Or they just listened to their mom pumping them up as a kid a little too long.

    But not necessarily replaceable by someone with equivalent competency. At least according to their shareholders

    Well average tenure of a CEO is pretty short. Good CEOs are harder to find sure, but most of them get brought in to do specific job (growth, cost cutting, turnaround, etc.) and then it's onto the next CEO for the next stage of the business

    I thought I was mission critical until I got a PIP out of no where which i refused to sign. I had done a good job training my replacement and was kicking ass at my job.
    Now at 41 I am starting an electrician apprenticeship. Specialist industrial commercial electro-mechanical automation, instrumentation, controls and plc programming expert.

    Now is a good time to make a change and do something I actually enjoy for the next 20 years. Hopefully things work out!
    Machining, Fabricating, Welding etc.

    Yes, my point is if people with CEO level skills grew on trees, they would not be compensated in the way that they are.

    I think the word “most” is extremely out of place.
