Corporate America sucks.
When my mortgage business starting crawling to a stand still back in February I was forced to take a job at a major credit card lender as a sales rep,
and it has truly been one of the worst experiences of my life.
It did offer me a glimpse into the corrupt and greedy world of the credit card companies. I was able to learn the in's and out's of how the beast
operates, and more importantly I got to see how companies like the one I work for (I dont want to name names..but it sounds a lot like Sitigroup)
treat their long time customers, and even worse their employees.
The entire culture of greed and treachery is enough to make any honest man vomit on his shoes and second guess everything he has ever been taught
about fair trade and business ethics. The managers are all scumbags and cronies and care less than 2 cents about anyones behind but their own.
Next monday will be my last day as I have been offered a position with a small broker shop where I will be able to actually earn a living and help the
people I am in contact with. Corporate culture is all about profits before people and screwing unto others at every turn, and that is not how I am
choosing to spend my days any longer.
In short, I would rather starve and live in a refridgerator box than to waste one more day fleecing my fellow citizens, who are all struggling to
scratch out a living just as I am.
I would offer this advice to anyone who chooses to sell their soul for a guaranteed salary and work for the great Satan - dont do it. Dont compromise
your integrity and your self respect and dignity. Do not waste your hours making some fat ass in a Brooks Brothers suit wealthy.
I realize that times are tough and most are hoping for any job they can fall upon, but I am here to tell you that this is a life of great misery for
anyone with half a brain and any semblance of a conscience. I detest corporate America and every filthy, indignant principle that it stands for and I
will never ever in this life ever again use my powers for evil.
Find what makes you happy. Help those you can. Do not place the almighty dollar above your own sense of right and wrong. Have faith that by doing what
is right and what is good that good things will come back to you in return. Being able to look yourself in the mirror every day is priceless.
