I’m going into industry in a couple of weeks. I knew it will be a good WLB when a friend of mine says people think it’s busy season when they work past 5:30 p.m.

Timing. What's the point of working 40 hours when you can't go to any of your hangouts with friends because you're sleeping in the middle of the day?The hourly pay is nice though, but it is super hard work. Difficult patients, incredibly dirty work at times, incompetent hospital management who are always budget cutting, rude doctors who sometimes see you as nothing more than wait staff. And you're CONSTANTLY on your feet unlike us where we're mostly sitting.

Some say the oldest profession (wink wink) but I am not convinced about that!

Only fans. Or the off-line version of it.

Unicorn farming

Definitely not public accounting lol

Non-profit or being the financial manager/town accountant for a small town. You won’t earn a huge amount.... but you’ll get all the holidays and only work about 35 hrs a week.

Any sage advice?? Put in my notice today with the CEO (we don’t have HR). I’d wanted to discuss my unhappiness in our review in Dec but he never scheduled one.
