Good suckage

“He also said if I didn’t work in a big place, I would never be able to comprehend how completely messed up on the inside they can be.”

Hank’s Career Advice, by Rich Skrenta

Believe it or not, that was pretty much the same line of reasoning I’d given to my divisional and group CEOs as to why, even when I whine endlessly about one of the companies I had earlier worked with, I still value the experience of having worked there more than anything else. It is hard as nuts to be in big companies where innovation and having a forward-looking vision beyond the tried and tested things is impossible to find. You often end up spending 80% of your time getting shitty little things done, than doing what you’d been hired to do or what you do best. But that’s an education that’s invaluable, especially in terms of training you to deal with things when they don’t really go your way. And it also increases that itch to finally get something done by yourself or to know, for sure, how you will do things differently when you finally get/take that chance.
