Now, I might not be getting paid what I should in the form of money, but I do get bonuses and perks that make up for all the hard aspects of my position.
I have to work late most nights, and when I can wrap up early, I often lose sleep over stress about the upcoming day.
And let’s not even get into the toll it’s taken on my body. Who has time for workouts when you’re required to be at work by 7am and usually don’t wrap up until 8pm?
I often find myself feeling extremely under appreciated and thinking terrible thoughts about my co-workers incompetence or lack of understanding of the tasks at hand, but I have to keep in mind that they’re usually only considered part-time at best and have other priorities at their other jobs to think about.
And don’t even get me started on my subordinates! I mean, how juvenile can they be??
Travel is not an exception, but the rule. Often times the travel is local, but I still see this as a perk since I get to visit new places and meet new people on a regular basis. This helps break up all the mundane days where I’m stuck in the office.
I also get to see progress and completion on projects first hand! Whereas I know in most businesses, you complete your part and it gets past along to the next team.
And in my career, you don’t have to worry about your future! You might also like to know that my retirement will be taken care of if I investments properly.
