    That's so very true. It's so true I can't even comment on it beyond saying READ THIS.

    I never bought into this crap in my career and I've always been the outsider, the contractor. It's grimy from out here. We don't get the same level of relationship. But we don't get spewed out like a used chewing gum.

    Simple fact, I've never been carefully listened to, and my opinion valued, as much than since I've become an expensive contractor. As an employee, even as a lead developer, I would speak, just to get contradicted. And it was a roller coaster to shitfuck with me in the front seat and no steering wheel.

    Don't buy into the corporate <3, at the end of the day, you're a cog.

    This is awesome. Sometimes I feel this way. I definitely need to start making things for my own!

    There are a lucky few who know that it doesn't have to be like this.

    Thanks for writing this. I've felt this way for a while and could never articulate it like this.

    This is indeed true. The biggest problem is that people just don't realise that. I'm working in a company where at least half of the stuff tends to work late. Most of the time it's just because the work was planned badly or they got too much responsibilities to be manageable in standard 8h - but instead of just admitting to having not enough time, they stay late at work .So sometimes people work 5-10h a week just for free, just so The Project is done on time. But they don't understand that the thing they are working on is not theirs, and nobody will recognise that additional effort.

    Nice. A job is just part of the journey of your career. Don't let a job ruin it for you

    One of the other sad things about modern society. I agree and totally know what he's talking about.
