Not everyone wants to be the boss … some of us just want to survive and be happy
Frustrated with my job? ..no
Annoyed by my superiors? ..no
Unsatisfied with my salary? ..kinda
I am a 32 year old male employee at a locally owned IT company. This job has been my only job since leaving school and I’ve been permanent for almost 11 years now.
I am married, my wife also works and we have an infant baby. I consider myself to be somewhat contented with my current job, this is not meant to say that there isn’t room for improvement. I have not actively sought out other job opportunities for as long as I can remember.
I think i’m mostly comfortable in my current job because of the niche position I am in where I am not responsible for a department but I still don’t have a supervisor or manager over my head.
Sometimes this makes me feel out of place like I don’t belong to any department but other times I’m happy it is the way it is. I’m respected by most of the other employees because of my knowledge and experience but I’m also harassed for help often by those same employees.
