Well, my boss and one of my teammates were fired. My two other teammates were lopped off and sent to another department and now I report directly to our VP. She told me things were going to change, but in standard fashion, nothing has.

My old boss is trying to recruit me away and I feel like I'm in a position where there's no right answer.

I also found out a woman I worked with a year or two ago spent most of the time we worked together telling people I stole her job and that's the reason an entire department stonewalls me. It's some high school bullshit and I'm not a fan.

But my best friend from school is getting help and looking to reconnect so we're going to start playing games once a week, which makes me happy.

Reading this, I think I'm more annoyed by the reaction of the department than the person. There will always be that one person, but if someone told me someone else stole their job, I'd be more judgmental of that person. Stole how? Objectively better at the role? More able to perform subjective aspects of it? Just a better fit? The more sinister reasons (nepotism, discrimination) wouldn't use the phrase "stole."

So it's disappointing any group of people bought into that.

Guess It depends on what your old boss can offer you and where he stands in his new job. You probably cant win at the old job but you might be able to if you go elsewhere, especially if you are recruited in as you have a lot of value in the negotiation
