Today I am grateful for my job.
I have had my ups and downs professionally. I think that's probably not unexpected when you work at the same place from age 24 onward. While I have not always loved working here, I most certainly do now and have done for at least the last six years. I have a wonderful team of talented people that I work with on a daily basis, I am paid fairly for my contribution, the benefit package is very competitive, and the work I do is interesting and well-suited for my talents. We have a gym on-site, complete with group workout classes and personal trainers. We have a 1/2 mile walking path around campus that's perfect for getting in a quick walk between meetings. We have a Starbucks coffee stand. We have a nice cafe where you can get nearly anything you want, including very healthy and also vegetarian options. We have a social every Friday night, complete with beer, wine, and light appetizers. Really, what's not to love?
