    Its a wonder why many people hate going to work everyday?
    extroverts = need this social interaction
    introverts = should work from home

    What is it about someone going above and beyond that so rankles co-workers?.......been there, done that icon_rolleyes.gif
    Unless my boss looks like Jake Gyllenhaal, I am not sleeping with him...boundaries people, boundaries

    Isn't it amazing? Even the cattiest queens can't hold a candle to the average woman when it comes to being catty.

    And then we have this, non compete agreement (different than non disclosure agreement), I do know that the state of CA outlawed non compete back in the 1800's. Maybe employers need to create a better working environment so employees will be loyal and will want to stay? But we all know times have changed and staying at one employer for 30 years just isn't reality anymore. Your 'talent' leaves because you suck as an employer and managing your people (slaves).


    More firms requiring non-compete agreements, efforts to retain employees being tested in courts, statehouses

    Tweeting about a new job can get you sued, companies eye social media to enforce non-solicitation agreements

    Some incredibly fucked up folks view the job site as a forum in which to play out the repercussions of the years of childhood drama and adolescent horror they faced.

    Not to mention their first AND second divorce....

    and their 16-year-old drug addicted son and 18-year-old stripper daughter

    I once worked at a place where one of the employees advertised her stripper daughter's next gig! icon_surprised.gif

    Personally I really dislike my job because

    1) I'm not given enough to do, I hate being bored.
    2) I need to be challenged.
    3) At my current level I don't feel like I'm growing.

    Trying to fix all that in the near future...

    I'm one of the rare exceptions. I've worked for the same company since 1977, am one of the original employees and thus have the highest seniority. I've been management since 1980 but it is an hourly wage position but with good benefits. Currently I only work 3 days a week and am the only person in my 'department'. I report directly to the owner and she and I have been friends since before she opened the business. The work environment is casual (not corporate culture) and very gay friendly. I feel very fortunate.

    yes you are fortunate, the 40+ somethings and the careers we have chosen are for the most part, yesterdays corporate world. On the other hand, youth today seem to be lost in todays not so popular profit before people corporate world, student loan debt and the expected low return on investment is going to be difficult for someone just starting out and a 40 year working life ahead of him or her. Dammed if you do, dammed if you don't.

    I don't have any advise for the young except play and win the lottery if you can, buy somebody else's business, live off your interest and take nice relaxing beach vacations icon_razz.gif
