What are the reasons you hate your job?

I quit my job and right now I'm studying. So, that could be removed from the corporate world and yes "I have a great hatred for my job"; stock price acquired from scrub.

I was an operational engineer in one of the largest multinational companies in India. I worked non-stop for 6 years and got 2 promotions (very few employees could say this), so in the 4th year I got involved in direct dealings with contractors and clients. Every weekend one or another contractor supervisor offered me a black dog or a Johnny Walker, but I always refused. I thought they knew about the habit of drinking so they offered me this.

I quit my job and right now I'm studying. So, that could be removed from the corporate world and yes "I have a great hatred for my job"; stock price acquired from scrub.

I was an operational engineer in one of the largest multinational companies in India. I worked non-stop for 6 years and got 2 promotions (very few employees could say this), so in the 4th year I got involved in direct dealings with contractors and clients. Every weekend one or another contractor supervisor offered me a black dog or a Johnny Walker, but I always refused. I thought they knew about the habit of drinking so they offered me this.

A contractor offered to take care of my accommodation during my annual trip to Goa; I accepted this because he told me that there is a guest house of the contractor's company in Goa. But, when I visited Goa, I found out that I had booked a suite in a very expensive hotel in Goa. I immediately understood that they were trying to bribe me.

Upon returning from Goa I told them; I don't need any bribery and I will help you in your work without it, just do your job safely. I audited them monthly, in which I found that there are many discrepancies in a contractor's work ethic and the experience of the workforce. I asked the supervisor to improve this or else this will lead to the cancellation of the contract. But it did not improve and caused an accident that resulted in death. I immediately gave that Contractor a C rating (this leads to contract cancellation).

After that, my boss and my superiors called me immediately and asked me to forgive and forget that mistake. They put a lot of pressure on me to change the rating of the contractor, but I was adamant, which eventually led to the cancellation of the contract.

Soon, I was the worst employee, my boss abused me in public for being late for 5 minutes or for a day of illness; They belittled me for every little mistake. I complained about this to our HoD and in response HoD asked me to change the rating. He also asked me to admit that I made a mistake in giving that rating.

That day I decided to quit my job and here I am without a job writing this on Quora.

Dishonesty and corruption are so rampant in multinational companies in India. You have to be a corrupt individual to work for Indian multinationals.

And this is the main reason for my immense hatred towards my last job.

Before the pandemic, I used to take the incarnations (my native people's version of spiritual bosses and leaders) to the city so they could run their errands, which usually were to withdraw their check from the bank. Usually we stop and indulge ourselves, but there will be times when random men will come over to flirt with them. My job is to protect them, so they gave me a list of scenarios to act on in case something like this happens. I'm 5'0 and 100 pounds so I'm not really intimidating.

We usually go with the boyfriend routine and that's enough to turn some guys away. If not, depending on what incarnation it is (since I grew up with Herephine's incarnation), I could kiss them to make them understand. Many times they leave after the incarnation tells them that they are not interested. However, there are times when guys just don't get the hint and I act out what I call the hidden conversation. I ask the man in question what he thinks about concealed firearms and that is usually more than enough to scare away these weirdos. There was a time when I kept following an incarnation and myself, so I subtly showed my pistol in its holster and it worked. If I was a big fan this would be a lot easier, but I guess I have to work with what I have.

I mean folks, why the fuck are we wasting our time on things like this? The only reason I don't put A is because some jerk in a high-level HR position might take this seriously.

And in many companies, these exams are already required if you are being considered for a promotion.

Getting up at 6am, I just can't wake up. Tea, coffee, an early bed, Berocca, energy drinks, whatever. They just don't work at all. Energy drinks provide a little kick, but only for a while. And relying on energy drinks is NOT good.

My job itself: I work for a large sports company, and my job is so boring, lowering my self-esteem and almost degrading that sometimes I fall asleep and have almost had panic attacks.

It takes me away from my true passion (up to a point), and that is composing music. When I get home, all I want to do is rest, and that takes most of my inspiration to eat.

I usually arrive at the office at 9:15 or 9:30 am and leave at 8 o'clock or they even arrive at 9 or 9:15 pm sometimes and when I think I'll be leaving early today, a question comes from my manager asking Are you leaving early?

From Monday to Saturday same routine with holidays only on Sunday. I had heard that at first it would be difficult for mechanics students to get jobs and all that stuff, but I never thought that my professional life would take away my personal life. I don't know what job I'm doing here, sometimes I need to do the job of the photocopy shop person. These are the reasons that make me think on a daily basis that it is worth living like this, away from family and loved ones, without being able to call or have a little chat with an old friend due to the many restrictions there are here.

Thinking of leaving this company as soon as possible.

These are the reasons why I hate my job.

  1. my boss and her intimidation tactics
  2. Central office and its lack of sympathy
  3. The corporate structure that is superfluous
  4. the long meetings
  5. the fact that I earn little compared to what the company earns with my time, energy, and pain.

Jobs are modern slavery. They pay us just enough to live and no more. They punish you if you ask for more.

We are often verbally abused at work. Sometimes (more than reported), physically abused, raped, neutered.

The government receives up to 50% of your paycheck and then 10-20% of that goes to kill people in other parts of the planet, including our own children.

We delude ourselves that our friends from work are our real friends. With our friends from work we talk about pens and cubicles. We stopped having real friends.

There is a glass ceiling. It doesn't matter if you are a white male, minority or female. The glass ceiling is that you are not allowed to do more than your Master, even if he is an idiot.

From 7 to. M. A 7 p. M., Either you go to work, to work or come back from work. The times when you can be most creative are compacted trash in your cubicle.

Eat shit at work. And, what's worse, you have to shit along with your co-workers and Masters. Unless, like me, you map all the secret toilets in your local urban plague.

When you're paranoid at a job, you're probably right. THEY, in fact, are talking about you and backstabbing right now.

You realize that all the money you spent on degrees to get a job that would make you happy was completely wasted. You were scammed, but you can't let the next generation know about it, so now you become part of the perpetuation of the scam.

A trillion dollar marketing campaign forced him to buy a house he did not really want and now he will "lose a house" he never really owned if he does not bow down to the Masters every day. The words "The American Dream" were coined by Fannie Mae in a marketing campaign 40 years ago to sell mortgages to slaves.

Your spouse is tired of hearing about your job after six months. And you can't care less about hers. Ten years later you wake up with a total stranger. 40 years later you die next to one.

Your IRA was not intended to cover your retirement. He intended to take money from him every month so that he would remain chained to his cubicle. Inflation then takes 90% of your IRA.

By definition: you create more value than you earn. That margin, minus executive salaries, is called "profit." This is not an "-ism". Just a definition.

When you were a child you liked to draw, read, run, laugh, play and imagine a magical world. You will never do any of that again.

Eventually, they are all fired and replaced by younger, cheaper, and temporary versions of you. You see this but you are afraid to do something about it.

You see homeless people and you think, "there, if it weren't for the grace of God, I would go."

It's okay.

Now. What are you gonna do about it?

Well, working nine to five.

In every job that I have worked, in every position that I have held, I showed up for work at six in the morning. Every day.

There are two main reasons for this. I have always worked in a metropolitan area and could never find a job right down the street from my house. I always had to travel a certain distance for my work, so going to work early allowed me to miss the horrendous traffic. Second, I am a morning person. My thinking is clearer, I am eager to work, my thought process is clear, and I am ready to dive into work.

Well, working nine to five.

In every job that I have worked, in every position that I have held, I showed up for work at six in the morning. Every day.

There are two main reasons for this. I have always worked in a metropolitan area and could never find a job right down the street from my house. I always had to travel a certain distance for my work, so going to work early allowed me to miss the horrendous traffic. Second, I am a morning person. My thinking is clearer, I am eager to work, my thought process is clear, and I am ready to dive into work.

I rarely announced this, I just showed up and started work and was working while everyone else was slowly coming in each morning. My bosses noticed it quickly. Invariably they asked me what time I enter. I would tell them. When asked why, I explained that I can't bear to waste my valuable productive time sitting in traffic.

Soon, smart bosses would take advantage of this. They would give me an assignment in the late afternoon and were so glad to see it completed and sitting at their desk when they came in. They often bragged to other managers. "Hell, I can throw something on Jerry at five in the afternoon and he will have it finished, polished and ready for me at eight the next morning." Sometimes they responded by asking if they could transfer me to their group.

Very quickly, in group meetings, someone would speak up and say, "Why do you work ten hours a day, fifty hours a week?" Note that I always had salaried positions. He would always mumble something about the morning traffic and they would answer by asking about the afternoon traffic. He sighed with resignation. At these meetings, the boss would stare at me.

This would last a month or two, maybe three. Then one day, I'd drop into my boss's office and say, “I'm exhausted. I'm going to start dividing at four. Also, I'm running out of afternoons. "

You see, everything was prepared. The boss knew he did a good job in the wee hours of the morning and would even brag about it. The boss knew that I was there ten hours a day, every day.

Notice that I didn't ask to leave at four, I told the boss that I was leaving at four. Invariably, with every boss they had, they would do something like wave their hand and say, “Whatever. But if there is a meeting or something important, you must stay. "My answer was:" Of course. "

And I would stay, even when the need might have been questionable. If there was a big problem in the fire, I'd be there until six or seven if necessary. If there was a late meeting, I would stay and not take a bite to get out of there. But this did not happen too often.

It worked. Six or seven months later, I would start slipping away at three thirty in the afternoon. Usually my boss would notice and say nothing; after all, I was the guy who worked so hard in the first few hours to make them look good. (Note that if I didn't have any assignments in the morning, I would use the time to address issues that I think should be addressed and leave the documentation on your desk or a detailed email about it ready for you to read and then arrive. Sometimes this resulted in a specific action or further investigation. In other words, in those early hours of the morning I was trying to address things that the boss had not considered or a persistent problem that I had). -thirty.

So they hired me to work nine to five, eight hours. I settled into work from 6 to 3:30, 8 1/2 hours, avoiding main traffic both ways and taking advantage of my morning vigor. Note that I always stayed up late on the rare occasions when it was necessary.

How do you shake this off? The company and my management benefited from my schedule. I was able to miss traffic and immediately had fun diving into things in the wee hours of the morning without the phone ringing and people stopping to interrupt me.

Even when I made my way to management, this was my schedule (although staying later was a bit more frequent).

You have a life. You can live to be 65-70 years old (if you're lucky) and that's it. End of the road.

Think very clearly and carefully and start very young.

What do you want to do with it?

Do you want to spend a good 30 to 40 years working for a company that would instantly replace you once you are gone?

Think about it, even if you retire as a vice president of a Fortune 5 company, the moment you walk out the door, someone will instantly fill that position.

There is a reason why people with 9 to 5 jobs are more likely to suffer a catastrophic midlife crisis. "

After a while, you will look back and see emptiness. You would have made money, but the more you earn, the more you spend. This is how economies prosper, this is how governments work. You will start to have more expensive lifestyles and you will work harder to maintain it. You can even die of a stress-induced heart attack along the way. The world will congratulate you on every promotion. You will pursue the illusion of happiness and the illusion of success.

But you're never really making it. You are never really making a personal statement.

In fact, he would never make a personal statement, in his entire life. Your statement would be the slogan of the company you work for. Just do it? Think different? Is finger licking good?

It's unimaginably a million times worse, if you don't even like your job.

And then when you're 50, after you've put your kids into very expensive private colleges and prepared them for the same rat race you ran, you'll go home and sit on your couch, take your antidepressants. and you will ask yourself, “Is this it? Is this all that life has?

Because you've run your whole life. And I got nowhere.

There are 2 types of people:

There are those who love their 9-5 jobs. They don't complain. They are quite happy where they are. Your 9–5 has given you enough money to build a decent life. They have struck a perfect work-life balance and are grateful.

But there are also people whose meaning of life has been shattered by their 9 to 5 jobs. People who have lost their identity by pursuing it.

It is up to the individual to recognize which category they will fall into.

Life is an exploratory experience. Committing to working more than half behind a desk is a big deal. It can be overwhelming.

He takes nothing when he dies. It's cliche to say it, but some things in life are cliches for a reason, because they are undeniable truths that are too often denied.

But you can leave something behind. A sentence. A verse.

To quote Whitman, "Oh me! Oh life! ... of these recurring questions; of the endless ranks of the infidels ... of the cities full of madmen; what's good in between of these, oh me, oh life? "Answer. That you are here, that life exists and identity; that the powerful work continues and you can contribute a verse. What will your verse be?

Sometimes I hate that it's correct!

As some of you may know, I work for a company that makes APIs (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients, so the active material of a drug).

I am responsible for the laboratory. (A short definition of laboratory is that department that needs to fix all the production and supply chain delays, but that's another discussion.)

Last week we had a minor problem with very little concentrated sulfuric acid contamination.

Concentrated sulfuric acid is a strong dehydration and oxidation agent and if stored it has a tendency to react with every organic material that comes along.

Sometimes I hate that it's correct!

As some of you may know, I work for a company that makes APIs (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients, so the active material of a drug).

I am responsible for the laboratory. (A short definition of laboratory is that department that needs to fix all the production and supply chain delays, but that's another discussion.)

Last week we had a minor problem with very little concentrated sulfuric acid contamination.

Concentrated sulfuric is a strong dehydrating and oxidizing agent and, if stored, it tends to react with every organic material it comes into contact with. So you can find some black particles in it. (which is basically just carbon).

The contamination was very small and I wanted to check with production if they filter sulfuric acid when they load it into the reactor.
The step where they are using the acid was still quite early in the process (two chemical steps before the API), and it is always necessary to balance the quality and not take risks on the one hand and use a pragmatic approach based on criteria. scientists. judgment (and QA approval) on the other hand. (Like I said, it was a very slight contamination).

Anyway, the production guy was telling us that they still had enough stock and that they didn't need that batch for this season and they argued that filtering the sulfuric acid was not an option that they could introduce in a short time.

While we were discussing this, they told me that they first put it in a loading container (Basically a big glass flask with a round bottom). I'm not sure why, but then I asked them how they rinsed this container. They replied that they only added a little methanol.

I was shocked and told them they were completely crazy! (Ok, maybe not so subtle, most of the time I try to nuance things, but it really surprised me!)
Later I explained to them that concentrated sulfuric acid with methanol forms dimethyl sulfate, an extremely toxic agent!

They told me that the container only contains traces of acid that they rinsed with enough methanol so the risk was minimal and they have been doing this for over 10 years. (The process was introduced in 2004).

I replied that the fact that they have been doing it like this for years is not a real argument, although I added that I am not an encyclopedia so I am not aware of the speed of the reaction and they should check for sure but that in my opinion, it was a very bad idea. (In fact, they sent my comments to our security department and put me in cc.)

I didn't hear about it, until today, when I spoke to a production operator. He wanted to have some buffers for a pH check and as we talked he told me that on Thursday they had an incident with this sulfuric acid rinse operation. There was a very vigorous reaction from the cargo container and it was shaking like hell. The operator thought it was going to break, but luckily it didn't.

So precisely what I warned you about at the production meeting. The operator was wearing his safety gear - protective clothing and air mask, so even if the boat had broken down, there was no immediate danger, but still, I really hate that it's correct.

It's weird, but even with all of our security procedures. PRIMA (Project RIsk MAnagement), HAZOPs (HAZard and OPerability Study) and all those other risk assessments, we seem to forget that we work in a chemical company and that every operation, however innocent it may seem, needs to be checked and double-checked.

Therefore, working in a chemical company is dangerous and I constantly need to remind people that it is.


Edit: to put everything in perspective: in excess of methanol, the dimethyl sulfate will react to the monoester (and dimethyl ether)

Monomethyl sulfate is a 'normal' chemical (dimethyl sulfate has a totally different level of toxicity). Therefore, if the methanol rinse is really in excess enough, the main safety issue is not the formation of dimethyl sulfate, but the exothermic reaction and the fact that dimethyl ether is a highly flammable gas. But in the case of the so-called 'out of control' reaction, things can get out of control, so the formation of dimethyl sulfate is still a possibility, so it's certainly something we want to avoid.
