The truth about full-time employment – it’s often a poor deal for the worker


It’s a new millennium now. We can tell the truth about work. We can tell the truth about the human element, always the messiest part of a job.

The formal goals and yardsticks have little to do with your progress on the job. If the boss likes you, you’re golden. If you are not the boss’s cup of tea, you can hit your assigned milestones forever and it won’t change a thing.

You’ll never get the recognition, compensation or career advancement you deserve. It’s simply an energetic mismatch in that case.

That’s why full-time employment for one organization — which is to say, because of the hierarchical nature of organizations, for one person — is a scary idea. It puts you at risk.
