do the disciples post here or something?
I love my job!
we want all the satisfied ones to post, THEN slag them off.
It's occasionally frustrating, often stressful and frequently requires long hours. But I love it. It's something I enjoy and sometimes I can't believe I get paid to do what I do.
you've been busy this morning
Considering it was about 3/10 this time last year I'd call that progress.
hopefully one day, it'll be more than 10 out of 10
but I don't think more than 10 out of 10 is possible.
(because my manager is a pain in the arse, and other company-related quibbles)
Where does that put me on your stinkin' scale?
"fairly satisfied in profession, but dislike current job"
perhaps I haven't thought this through sufficiently.
Really enjoy my area of work. Normally am very satisfied with my job. Can't stand it at the moment though. New boss has started. Don't like her. Also got given really shit projects to do this year on account of the person who's supposed to be doing them not being good enough to do them, so they got given to me. We get paid the same salary too so I'm constantly narked about that.
I have a great job. 8+/10
what do you do that's so good/bad too?
And it's always challenging, for lots of different reasons. Most of all, I like getting exposed to tons of new technology (although admittedly most of it is very very mundane), because I am a nerd.
Bad: boss. People who work for her tend to quit. Company: doesn't give a single fuck about anyone below partner level, and this is reflected in pay/transparency/lots of other niggles. I'm not staying here forever.
that might still be interesting, maybe I'll read all that later
The pay, progression opportunities, and work/life balance are an absolute farce, at least in my area.
don't like the sound of that
And there are limited options for careers which actually make use of that sunk time.
My colleagues are a 8/10
My wage is a 9/10
except for the wage :/
but wages 1/10
My own work 10/10
Overall, very happy, painfully poor.
it's pretty decent all in all and it's related to something I like, the people are really nice. There's something else I'd rather do, but I don't know if it's worth the trouble.
No idea what I’d rather be doing instead
Office politics making the place unbearable
Current job has benefits that make it hard to leave (flexi, location of office, wage etc)
Would probably have to take a pay-cut to do something else, which I’ll only end up hating anyway.
when I relaised my dreams of being a rockstar or award winning music journalist or pro body builder weren't gonna happen.
Sometimes it's a matter of mindset. Now I know this isn't a stop gap, I've become a little more ambitious and that in itself has helped.
because he's an immortal lizard king or something
but its probably also because im two weeks into a six week holiday and i get paid for it.
could do with more dollar though tbf
and going nowhere, plus it is a good hour long bus ride there and back. However, it is very well paid for what I do, very flexible in terms of holidays, time off and working from home, the people are alright and I can skulk around on tinternet most of the time. I am concerned if I get another job closer to home, even if it is on more pay I will be utterly miserable and forced to do loads of really tricky techical work (IT) that I have not dealt with before. So I just carry on here.
Best job ever AND we are off to Alton towers for a two day pass and a stay in the "wacky" hotel in works time
But it's a whole world of pain when you f**k things up. And it's so easy to f**k it up as well.
GAME - 2/10 (manager killed himself)
Coffee Shop - 7/10 (all female colleagues)
HMV - 7/10 (got loads of free stuff)
The Social 10/10 (hip like a motherfucker)
Siemens - 4/10 (lots of semen jokes)
OU - 6/10 (laid back)
Manual labourer 9/10 (good money but will be 2/10 when it starts raining and shit)
United need a central midfielder, Fabregas ain't going there so I've got to make myself available for the start of the season.
It's ok. I mean I just bake and now my bfs living with us for a bit we have a ps3 so I can play bioshock infinite
looking forward to my appraisal though which will be in the next week or so to see what happens there. I am a bit of an oddity in that of all the permanent employees in our department I am the only one who does IT development. this makes it tricky when coming to assess how well I have done in a year as my skillset is pretty unique.
I think what will happen though is I will eventually get pushed towards a more managerial role, dislike that because I like coding and stuff and either a) quit and go do some proper IT development or b) stay here and do management rubbish because it's easier than getting a new job. second option is depressingly likely.
except there are only two developers and I don't have the managerial guff.
And I feel quite privileged to get paid for what I do. Colleagues are generally great which is ridiculously important. There's various low points but never enough to make me want to leave or anything.
