First off I have to say I hate the following:
1. Lazy people
2. Incomptent people
3. Both that get in my f*cking way and cause me more work
But in my case I have worked at over 30 companies - it is all the same. The companys care about one thing and one thing only - making money - the bottom line. Guess that's why I never get fired I get pissed off and quit because if there is one thing I do well it is make the company money and lots of it. Once I worked 80+ hours for 3 months doing the impossible getting a company certified in QS 9000 TE - NO ONE, not even Durrand could pull off a monemental task like this. With that the company received over $46 million in contracts they never would have gotten otherwise. What did I get? Oh thanks you can take 1 or 2 vacation days and then back to work because we have lots to do. WTF is that? I could tell you plenty of similar stories. The company I am at now is by far the worst - a lady works there for 39 years - she was loyal to the company, did her job, kept her mouth shut and what does she get for it? She gets axed 1 year before full retirement and gets the shaft - boy I am motivated now. Currently out of 20 departments in my company only mine made money this year. Who gets shoved in a shythole office in the corner? Yeah you guessed it the people who made the f*cking money and kept the rest of the mfrs out of the gas chamber in Stuttgart. Now they are merging and axing people left and right - no rhyme or reason and no warning. Gee I am motivated now. It is sick. I have read reports that the most successful companies in the world are not like this - the employees are treated well, overpaid, etc. The problem is none of these companies are hiring because no one ever quits or leaves.
So yeah no wonder people are slackers. Companies need to dangle the carrot and take care of business but they don't care - they are greedy pos.
