schestowitzHad high expectations of my paceOct 03 00:30
schestowitzHe might now know that in one month of work I spend the number of hours some people spend in a week (averaging 50)Oct 03 00:31
schestowitzI bloody hate office politicisOct 03 00:31
schestowitzIf this was a full-time job, the pace of progress would have been (at least) quadrupled.Oct 03 00:35
schestowitzSome people spend all their life on a jobOct 03 00:35
schestowitzeven working on their phoneOct 03 00:35
schestowitzwork not as in hobby but making moneyOct 03 00:35
schestowitzand they soemtimes expect others to do the sameOct 03 00:35
schestowitzwhich I think is unreasonableOct 03 00:35
oiaohmIf they are willing to pay for it they can get it.Oct 03 01:49
oiaohmThe big issue I run into schestowitz is boss who attempted to expect me todo over time for nothing.Oct 03 01:49
oiaohmOf course I can understand a boss being upset if it turned out you had been paid todo nothing.Oct 03 01:50
oiaohmYes I had one of those jobs at one point where I was paid really todo nothing.Oct 03 01:51
oiaohmI did not have the secuirty clearnced to work on the filing cabnets yet I was cleared to look after the server where copies of all the data was stored.Oct 03 01:52
oiaohmYes kinda insane.Oct 03 01:52
oiaohmBOSS kind got that changed fairly quickly so I could be there to repair server if it failed and be checking records.Oct 03 01:52
oiaohmIe 2 people being paid todo the job that should have been 1.Oct 03 01:53
schestowitzamong people I know:Oct 03 01:53
schestowitzseems like most work overimt eof no extra payOct 03 01:53
schestowitzand not to mention dressing up and travelOct 03 01:53
schestowitzwhich also takes timeOct 03 01:53
schestowitzone has to just assume a 40-hour (a week) job might actually be a netOct 03 01:54
schestowitzand gross is about 60Oct 03 01:54
oiaohmI am very particular that I don't like driving at night.Oct 03 01:54
schestowitzWhen the jobs market is poor, employers can raise thr # of hours and get away with itOct 03 01:54
schestowitzoiaohm: dirivng at night is always unsafeOct 03 01:54
schestowitzanyway, speaking of nightOct 03 01:55

oiaohmBut with enough reduncy you can choose a suitable timeOct 03 01:59
*oiaohm has quit (Quit: by all)Oct 03 02:06
qu1j0t3schestowitz: impressiveOct 03 02:15
qu1j0t3schestowitz: i'd rather be working from homeOct 03 02:15
qu1j0t3i was before, but the project suckedOct 03 02:15
qu1j0t3'According to SEC filings, MSFT insiders sold 117.3 million shares in the last reporting period. In the same period institutional holders sold 81.5 million. Which seems to suggest that professional investors see more value in Microsoft than the company's executives. Oct 03 04:54
qu1j0t3'With 40% net profits and a monopoly position in the market don't be surprised if success at MS is determined by politics and internal optics. If you ever worked at ATT or IBM in their monopoly days you would have more realistic expectations. Find a way to make this work for you and don't expect it to change until it all comes crashing down at which point we will all have much worse Oct 03 05:17
qu1j0t3problems then our own frustrations.Oct 03 05:17
