Are you kidding me? Granted I'm not a VP of banking (I do fairly standard data entry... hourly rate, very entry level), but for f'ing serious? I don't even consider myself the most competent or put-together or 'go getting' guy I know (I can think of a dozen friends I'd want to run a company before me)... but my coworkers are it? This is our world? Seriously, America? Honestly, world? These are the most enterprising and competent people we can find?
Am I just imagining ****? Are people this stupid? Incompetent? I work for a major bank, and I am astounded at the office politics, mismanagement, inefficiency and general incompetence. I don't want to sound like an arrogant jerk but I could do better and I'm 20 w/o a degree. These people are in their thirties and forties and often went to school for this.
Do I really need to endure these people to hope to move up some day? Is business just a series of butt ****s until you're the boss- or close enough to being the boss- and the butt ****s diminish into rim jobs?
I know I screwed up by not finishing school and so maybe these responsibilities (dealing with incompetent workmates, observing inept upper management) are mine to bear, but holy God in Heaven. This is absurd.
