#3762914 Essay's Top Ten

BBT is a traditional sitcom with an audience/laugh track. Modern Family has immensely more in common with Arrested Development than BBT.*

*I am not making the claim that Modern Family is in the pantheon with AD...but it is a pretty decent show.

I gotta say, I'm shocked that you hate when the show has a smart, strong, outspoken woman on it, but love it when it's centered on a mediocre product of nepotism. Doesn't seem consistent with your brand.

I love you

I remember when I saw the recruiter ad for a position on the team I was just promoted to and the salary range was about 10k/yr more than the raise I had to fight and claw and get executive board approval to obtain. I flipped my shit at my boss. I asked them why they valued certs and other, largely unnecessary, technical experience that can be learned anywhere over company specific knowledge that gets used daily to cut ticket resolution times by up to 70%? Then I went on to ask what kind of talent retention strategy was not competitively compensating internal promotions with outside hires and did they really expect to retain "go getters" with that kind of approach? Finally, I showed them salary increase projections of my salary vs. the advertised salary and how long it would take to "catch up" even if I beat the new hire by a 2-3% difference in performance increase every year. Not long after that I got a "salary adjustment" to put me slightly over the advertised listing and over a 5% raise the next 2 years.

My point here Strat is that if you are waiting for them to recognize your value and compensate you for it you're going to die underpaid. Sometimes you gotta make a business case and demand what's yours. The worst they will do is say no and you haven't really lost anything. As I type this, I'm pretty sure I've advised similarly before so I'll try to remember to shut up about it in the future so as not to beat the dead horse into paste.

My advice presumes you create efficiencies, add value, and generally get shit done. Anyone else reading this advice that, say for example, got a job because of family connections probably won't like the result as it will most likely be getting laughed out of the room and/or being the butt of numerous jokes at the office christmas party and the like.

Oh, I'm just joshing ya. A little ribbing between friends. I'm sure he ran the only clean Adidas program.

Hey bigd, now that it's officially fall I wore my Daltons today and had a dentist appointment. 3 hygienists came into the room at some point and they all said how much they loved them. Daltons...a hit with dentists.

Also, Brvy was being a little melodramatic about Tilty shitting all over him. Thera, he shit on.

I naturally have a desire to fix broken relationships. So when things go badly, my natural instinct is to fix it. If I can't fix it, then I can get a little melodramatic.
