Alex got me thinking from something he said on his "M62 car park" thread.
something along the lines that it's more worrying to be late into work rather than be late home from work. now i don't have kids yet but that would just amplify my feelings on this issue.
i work for a large corporation and although i do my fair share of work i will NOT bust my balls for the company without getting paid for it!
here's an example, i'm sure there is someone like this in every company....the guy who will work into the late hours on a regular basis without getting paid any OT....just for the good of the company!
i say b0llocks to that! at the end of the day i'm just a figure on a massive spreadsheet and if the company ever needed to make cuts, they wouldn't think twice about who to get rid of. so i don't see why i should work my socks off in order for the company to reap the rewards!
maybe its because i'm of the mindset that you'll never get rich working for someone else...and i know money isn't everything, but its alot! i've been thinking about starting my own business but i just can't put my finger on which industry to proceed in.
if i owned and ran my own company i would work my fingers to the bone to make it a success....but i just don't have the same enthusiasm when working for a big company, where politics are a daily burden and appreciation of employees is non existant.
what are your thoughts on this matter!?
hopefully this should spark some lively debate
