Work is either fun or drudgery. It depends on your attitude. Me? I like fun.Submitted by Merlina at 2009-03-22 18:31:34 EDT

20th March 2009...ohh Merlina leaves her job.
Oh dear. Five weeks was all it took for her to wonder why, oh why are these big London companies still earning money. I was in the Assurance dept for rail infrastructure. I saw problems...many, many problems and found it hard to not mention them. Maybe my naive mind though that was a good thing.
But oh no. Joint ventures like this involving millions do not want to hear the bad stuff. They stick their fat cat fingers in their ears and LALALALA all the way through the day.
At the same time I sat and listened to the shite going on. Now the mad thing is that these projects will get handed over and accepted. Even though the cast documentation being produced is worth nothing – no one even reads them. What is the point?
So I come to wonder.....do I change my career? Construction in London is all going the same way it seems. So instead of doing a job well these days... you are lambasted for trying to get it right. It s all about ‘cutting corners’ and ‘making do’.
I don’t think I can work like that.
Saying all this – I have a meeting next week about a position as Assurance Manager for one of the largest London Rail companies. It’s a six figure salary. So do I prostitute myself and ‘lie back and think of the money’?
Can I? Do I want to?
