show me the money
I had a very depressing night last night catching up with a load of former colleagues. Don't get me wrong, it was lovely to see them all - they're now a selection of the great & the good working for blue chip companies/government departments etc. They all told me that if I worked for their companies I'd be fired on the spot because I don't tow the party line. They then urged me to go down the corporate route in order to get on. Why is that the only way forward? It seems ridiculous to me that in order to double my salary I have to start writing things that nobody wants to read. There has to be another solution. Surely the position I'm in now, with all its flaws and megalomania, can't be as good as it gets?
