: Now does this mean that all business execs hate what they do and are only in it for the money? OR do they love what they do to us, making us hate them yet getting what they want from us for as cheap as possible?
I'm sure they love their work as much as we love ours. "Creating" profit can be fun, too.
: Are there any honest to goodness execs out there reading this for an answer. I know I'm asking for a bit much looking for an "honest" one.
: Why don't we all start taking business classes and learn how to fend for ourselves and toughen up and learn their ways so we can bear them at their own game. They can't stop us can they? That way we can still love our jobs and learn how to manipulate THEM. I wonder if there are any former college business teachers who've left the dark side (Harvard MBA's and the like) and will come see our side and teach us what was taught them.
I went out and bought Peter Drucker's book, "Managing for Results" early in my career. Drucker established the basics of business management. It seemed a little cold-blooded at first ... but you begin to see the sense eventually, and that there's nothing immoral about it either.
: Either that or we all go out and start hating our jobs. Or at least look like you hate it. Put on your mean face Snakey.
Despise your job, but enjoy your work. Does that make sense?
