I’m not having a good time at work. Lately I’ve been doing mindless shit and it’s driving me bonkers. See, we used to have people to do this mindless shit but they all got laid off, they’ve moved out of here, gone, bye-bye but this shit still has to get done.
I’m what’s called an individual contributor which I love because I don’t have any performance evaluations to do and I manage my own time. My work is mostly project related so I’m either part of a team or I manage a team. I’ve lead some major projects like closing and opening up manufacturing plants and warehouses, moved worked from the US to Brazil to India (not my fault people!!). I’ve trained people and still doing the LGBT training. I’ve kept myself marketable in the work place by getting a masters degree. All in all I’ve done well and have been relatively happy with the job. Not lately though.
The shit heads running the show have reduced our salaries, reduced the headcount in the US, taken away benefits, yet they keep on demanding more and more. Yeah, I should be happy to have a good job right? Bite me!
Vacation time isn’t coming quick enough.
