    I Dread Going In Everyday..

    Yes, it pays well but so does the misery. It's a thankless job where people would rather point out your mistakes than praise you for doing a job well done. My manager pulled me aside one day and told me she thought I was doing a good job but she said that she couldn't say it in...

    I never wanted to be one of those boring

    ******** who couldn't find anything to think about except work, but, here we are. I guess when you have a job as ****** as mine, it becomes compulsory to talk about it just so you don't show up with a machine gun one day and blast everyone away. Truthfully, though, I haven't...

    The pay is low with very little chance of raises. The promotions are very cliquish, which means if your not in the group your stuck. They lie and use you. The other employees are snitches and they have the mentality I suffer we all suffer. I am mentality drained and just the...

    Few years ago I found myself overwhelmed with

    the mismatch between my real potential, the job I was in, and the promises of the people who were driving my career at the time. Total misalignment! However much effort I was putting in, nothing was fitting into place. So I got frustrated, confused, demotivated... And all these...

    My job is just unbelievable.

    I'll try to sum it up by telling you about the folks I work with: First, there is this supermodel wanna-be chick. Yeah, okay, she is pretty hot, but damn is she completely useless. The girl is constantly fixing her hair or putting on makeup. She is extremely self-centered and...
