Places of Employment

Jobs come and go.

Some good, some not so good.

Sometimes we find ourselves in a particularly bad job, for one reason or another.

And we make sporadic jumps to another job.

Only to find out it's not so great either.

And sometimes we make a career of jumping from one bad place of employment to the next.

So you have to sit down and wonder, is it me or is it them?

Well, that's a tough one I suppose.

Probably different for each person / each job.

I can say from my own personal experience that I do good work.

I'm fast, accurate, attention to details, hard working, take ownership, problem solver, always improving, etc.

You would think those are some good traits to have.

Except the working world is not perfect you see.

And some places you are actually looked down upon for being an exceptional worker.

Because there are politics, underground networks of people who do nothing, resentment, jealousy, etc.

I'd really like to get off the tread mill of bad places to work.

I feel I bring a lot of talent to an organization.

It would be nice to finally find a place to call home, where my work is appreciated, I'm given some freedom to explore, I'm compensated sufficiently, where I can grow to the next level and find some real challenge.

I'm getting tired of this game of impressing everyone at the start, getting frustrated with crappy environments, only to move on to the next place.

So is it me, or is it them?
