I get compensated to do nothing all day long for most of the week, and then do a bunch of work in one day. Its pretty nice.

If by job you mean me sitting around photoshopping stuff for the amusement of OT, then yes, but I don't get paid enough for it.

I’m with ya. My gig rocks right now. I’m one of the senior dogs and I get to make architectural decisions. I get to pick the more interesting stuff to implement (still have to do my share of the garbage). When I say stuff, people act like I know WTF I’m talking about (boy are they gullible). And they cut me FAT checks to do it.

Oh, so you decide what keeps a building standing. Cool...

hmm...a supporting column shaped like a dong? Sweet.

When I say stuff, people act like I know WTF Iím talking about (boy are they gullible).
Pshh...yeah, that dong column is good for at least a few thousand pounds of support.

And they cut me FAT checks to do it.

There are days I love my job--this isn't one of them though. Overall I enjoy the work though and feel I am compensated fairly (not extravagantly).

<--tries hard to NOT be the stereotypcial gov't employee and most customers seem to appreciate that

I have liked my job more and more as I've progressed up the 'corporate ladder' over the past 8 years. I'd like to get away from engineering altogether pretty soon and get into management. I guess I get paid ok, but I know that there are people who do what I do here and get paid much more.

I love my job as well, I hardly do any work just study and do schoolwork all the time when i'm not surfing the web, and my boss is actually cool with it most of th time when she sees it's school related lol...i don't get paid a whole lot, i'm only daytime part-time but i make enough, and i couldn't think of a better job to be in while going to school full-time.

I love what I'm doing right now, but there's no way I feel fairly compensated for it. Another $10k a year base and I'd be fine with it.
