I love my Job and the Company I work for!

While there are always pluses and minuses with every job, I can honestly say that for the last 23 years I've been doing a job that I love. I've been a musician and teacher for my same employer since the beginning of 1989. I take care of my company and they have always taken care of me. It seems like so many that I talk to cannot say that much positive about about their career and/or employer. So I'm curious...... how many of you are in the same situation where you are happy in your career and the company you work for?

Design, plan, and build.... I love it.

I've been an architect for 34 years, love what I do, and have never regretted my career path. I like my current employer and also have liked being self-employed in the past. This doesn't mean that I don't run into difficult clients, contractors, or regulatory authorities. Those occasionally come with any job. I just look upon them as another management challenge.

I LOVE my current situation! I "work" for the Government..... well, they send me cheques every month, and the only justification is my age... Really, I don't know how I had time to work for The Man.

The last guy I worked for was a jerk, anywhere up to 12 hours a day, money was okay, I took holidays when I wanted, or when the customers let me...... oh, wait, that was me, running my own business....

If I worked for "The Vintage Aviator Co" I am sure I would try to be there for the rest of my life...
Shame I don't.

Hi,

I've been a cop for the last 26 years. Some assignments were better than others, but all in all things have been good. My current assignment is the best. I work in a detective bureau with a 6 figure base salary, benefits, on call pay, a take home car, and steady overtime.

Yesterday we did a buy/bust operation on a guy suspected of selling stolen property on E-Bay. Today we helped another agency serve a search warrant in our area for property stolen in a series of burglaries. Two in custody, property recovered. Life is good.

Yeah I love my business. I make tshirt designs and I get paid a commission for each tshirt that is sold with one of my designs on it. So I get passive income. I make money every day whether I work or do something fun or relax. I have complete freedom + an income. It's the ideal combination. I hate everything about working for other people. To me, the only good thing about a job is when you get to go home. I'm also going to start making 3d objects and sell those on the internet just like the tshirt designs. It'll be a second stream of passive income. I don't need to worry about losing my income or the economy or the unemployment rate. All that has no effect on me. I love my situation. I love getting paid for doing nothing.

I am truly lucky.....after runnng my own business for 12 years, my mentor convinced me to work for his company. That was a year and a half ago.....today I flew a Presidential candidate in our Gulfstream 2B.....I would still be sweating it out in my shop, working on little airplanes and spraying cotton in my ag-plane.....all fun stuff, but I am truly happy with what I'm doing now.....don't pinch me, I don't want to wake up! Living my dream......

I'm a dentist, love it. Student loans suck but I make up for it with income and flexability. I work on my planes at the office and too see some of these kids faces when they see a beautiful 3dhs aj slick in the corner is a hoot. Interesting to see all the positive employment experiences despite the economy. It seems more and more like businesses are gobbling each other up leaving few choices except to start a small business.

I am the guy that makes your electrcal and computer problems go away in your late model car.

30 years in and I am leaving it to restart R/C Works.

At 53 years old I am not in to working in 120 degree bays over 230 degree motors and commuting 2 hours a day to work 12 to 18 hours a day... I have done that for for the last 3.5 years.

It paid off my house in 4 years start to finish. I have no crdit card debt.

Time to do what I want now.

Career US Civil Servant Aerospace Engineer here. 34 years in the busness. 11 years taking care of KC-135's for the USAF, 23 years with the FAA. Everytime you ride on an airliner you benefit from the word done by my office. Can't say I love it but it has challenges and benefits, beats anything else I've looked at.

What we DO is really awesome: We manufacture components for medical robotics, and are branching out into aerospace and some military. I mean, how cool is that? Robotic endoscopic surgery. I got to fiddle with a DaVinci, once. There's a doctor-side station (which could be anywhere at all-even the other side of the globe), and a patient side robot, with a camera and up to five, I think, instruments at the doctor's disposal. There's a microphone and speaker at your ear, and a matching set by the patient. So easy to use, just sit down, lean in, and stick your fingers in the gizmo. Very cool! Squeamish? How about titanium pieces for helicopter nose guns, parts that go into spy drones (RC, anyone? ), mixing chambers for Atlas rockets.... Who knows what tomorrow will put on the inspection plate.

It's a crying shame about the real jerks I gotta work with, though. Oooooh! I've been strongly tempted to walk out many times just this past quarter.
