Private vs. Public Jobs

Well, I've been at my new job over 3 months now.

And it was definitely a step up in the world.

One thing I will mention, working for the past 5 years for the Public sector, my schedule never varied, you did your 8 hours and went home, no overtime, period.

Working for a private company however, I get emails passed the close of business, which I respond to.

Because the emails are important, like some report is wrong, or some report didn't run, and must be fixed immediately.

I never felt that sense of urgency my past 5 years, never.

However, I like to work hard, and it's expected, so there you have it!
