Benjamin’s last day at Compass Bank

Today is Benjamin’s last day at Compass Bank, and what a roller coaster ride it has been. My overall rating of Compass Bank as an employer would be a D- based on how they have treated Benjamin in his 2.5 years there. That isn’t to say that most of the people he worked with weren’t good people, but overall the company does not treat their employees well and regional management is a joke.

Tomorrow I’ll be adding Benjamin to my health, vision, and dental insurance. IBM is great in that they offer domestic partner benefits but since it isn’t recognized as a legal marriage by the federal government, the money IBM contributes to cover Benjamin’s insurance is taxable income for me. Not sure how much of an impact that will be, guess we’ll find out next January.
