  The Corporate Trap

Well, after a couple days off from the Blog I’m back and I’m angry as ever. Yesterday was Monday, the worst day of the week for me because it means going back to work. I don’t mind working that is not the problem. In fact, I’m a very hard worker and love to learn new things. The problem is the job.

The Office…
I started working at “The Office” almost 3 years ago. 2 Years ago The Office moved to Rosemont. For those who do not already know, Rosemont is a crappy little city next to O’Hare Airport which is made up of hotels and offices. The actual Rosemont population is only 4,200. It’s basically an office town. The Office has between 25 and 35 employees at any given moment depending on how well the company seems to be doing at that time. I have seen quite a few people come and go in my 3 years. “The Office” is a software company. Inside, The “backroom” where my desk is located is always hot. The air does not move and there are probably 20 PCs running all of the time so it is always stuffy and noisy.
Basically your average stuffy office in a far office town full of nerds and losers.

The Job….
My job consists of writing software upgrade documents, testing new releases, training the Engineers, and some customer support. Basically I sit in front of my computer for 9 f&#king hours straight 5 days a week. I know what you are thinking, and that is…Awww poor baby doesn’t like his job. Boo Hoo.
Well f!%k that! I’m like a hawk with it’s f#@king wings clipped.

The corporate trap…..
I got caught in the corporate trap because I had know idea about the effects that sitting in an office all day in front of a PC can have on the brain. It’s tough. I went to computer training school so that I could get a good job and make some money. Right after school I got hired at The Office. I started making some decent money after only a couple of months. After a few more months, I got married and we bought our first place. BAM! The corporate trap.
1. Get a job in the corporate world. 2. Make some decent money. 3. Get a house.
Now you are in The corporate trap. You have job security and money but you also have a mortgage payment. Let me just say that being married to my wife and having our own house is the greatest pleasure in the world and I would stay in corporate hell forever to keep this good thing going. It’s worth it. So once your sucked in it is very difficult to get out because you can't really afford to take a smaller salary then what you are making now and anyplace outside of the corporate world, you are expected to work hard for less money.

The Breakdown……
Next, the company starts with a couple of layoffs. “Don’t worry everything is fine” the boss says. Meanwhile, some X-employees are packing up there shit. Heres the real kicker.. “Sorry, but until furthur notice yearly raises have been capped at 3%” AWESOME! Now we REALLY have no motivation.
Let’s recap. You have a group of employees working on salary for a company that hasn’t seen any new business in 2 years, and that doesn’t give raises until furthur notice. Very positive environment huh?
