I can’t really think, with warmth, of any one past employer. True, some bosses were better than others, some offices nicer, and some co-workers smarter, but all in all, no warm fuzzy feelings.
Are you supposed to, or can you afford to, have any attachment? After all, isn’t it true that, generally, the only way to get a real pay increase is to move after two or three years? And what about at-will employment? Who do you think started that? Employees? Not likely. And what about arbitration clauses that many employers require employees to sign? Are they trying to insulate themselves from the impact of legitimate charges of workplace discrimination?
What do you think about your experience as an employee? Or, as an employer? Am I just screwed up? A malcontent?
