How often do you feel unappreciated at your job?

For me it’s often lately..

Many corporations (as well as some military leaders) require their execs to read the Art of War. Many methods directly apply to the boardroom. Was just curious. A favorite is 'do not interrupt an adversary when he is making a mistake.'

@PatKirby Thats always a good plan. My daddy was a colonel in the Marines before he retired

Every day when I worked for someone else. When I became self employed, I was greatly appreciated.

@RogueLoner I think that’s why farmers are happier than if they work a job.

Thanks for the B/C

@TexChik 😊
Every now and again… but then out of the blue they do something especially nice for me and I feel very appreciated. At the end of the day, I’m just supplying a service.

To be honest, I've never looked to my job for validation. I have nothing in my office, and am ready to go as soon as they fire me, or something better comes along.

@FukFaceWillie fair enough
PatKirby · M
Enough to consider leaving. The reasons for the recent Great Resignation include low pay and lack of respect among others.
Nolovehere · 31-35, M
@PatKirby pay alone would give me enough reason

It used to be daily but I have a really great boss and am on an awesome team again and that makes such a huge difference.

Most days. Par for the course for a teacher.... unappreciated by admin, students, parents, society...
Nolovehere · 31-35, M
@Dewkissedrose teachers have it the worst
Eddiesolds · 56-60, M
They treat us really good here. When they are stressed out. They change. Lol

@Monanorth Girl.. don’t waste your money. Make sure it’s something you think you will enjoy doing. 🙂

Andromedanian · 22-25, M
@Nolovehere Believe me I'm working on it bro but I still have to make ends meet in the mean time
Nolovehere · 31-35, M

Always and forever, but who cares? Work for yourself, take the high road, then once you’ve achieved perfection, move on with head held high….
Nolovehere · 31-35, M
@fun4us2b well it’s a tough economy out there of course I care
fun4us2b · M
@Nolovehere The owner only cares about getting the work done - unless you're kicking ass - he/she doesn't give a crap about you...trust me, I'm an owner - all these guys that tell me their hardship stories, but then show up late, act lazy and complain then leave early...really? I don't want to know their problems....you work, I pay...

In short, make yourself valuable and irreplaceable - then the money will come...

Maybe it's time to look around?
Nolovehere · 31-35, M
@uncalled4 yeah
PatKirby · M
@Nolovehere Take it from me, if a person has started thinking about being unappreciated at work, it's past time to be looking for another job. There's plenty of jobs that respect and appreciate you. I hear higher salaries are to be had these days.
Nolovehere · 31-35, M
@PatKirby appreciate that
Nolovehere · 31-35, M
@V00doo why not change jobs
