I'm Asking: What Do You Like About Your Job?

I'm Asking: What Do You Like About Your Job?

We all need to rant about our daily grinds once in a while, but it's also important to consider what we appreciate about our jobs. The good stuff can be overshadowed by the stress and complaining, so let's send some positive vibes today! It is Friday, after all. What do you like about your job?

I love crunching number and the rush I get from having to meet a deadline. This happens 2x out of the month the other time isn't that busy. I also get a lot of time off and I get along with the people I work with.

I don't like my job, it sucks but it pays really good considering I'm online doing what I want 75% of the time. :) I guess it's pretty laid back here too just wish it was in a different field.

I enjoy my work and get a great deal of satisfaction out of my accomplishments. It means a lot to me.

I love being a teacher and watching my students grow smarter every single day! I love listening to their great ideas and theories about math, social studies, reading and writing that on MOST days, I go home extremely happy and proud. I also enjoy my staff as they're great people, and my pay is actually really great - katie225 - you don't get paid over vacations and for summer vacay? We also get 10 do-whatever-we-want (sick, vacation) paid days during the school year. If we don't use them, we get reimbursed for a full day's pay at the end of the school year.

I love my coworkers, they are so much fun and come from all around the globe so theres always an interesting story. and I love the freedom to learn whilst on the job. If i'm not doing something, I'm free to (for instance) learn VBA to automate our excel reporting, or implement something new in sharepoint. They are allowing me to develop my role and my career with little guidance, which is so nice. AND I dont have strict times, so I can work whenever I want, as long as its 7.5 hours a day (sometimes even from home!). My job really is cushy as anything!

I love that it's flexible and that I have creative leeway. It sometimes feels like I get paid to get out of the house for the day.

I love... that I can talk back to the head of my company. "Whatever the princess says goes!" (to a long-haired/bearded 55-year old Jewish hippie) wouldn't have flown so well in my military days. I love that they buy me an endless supply of Red Bull. I love that when I went to see an Orthopedic specialist today, my co-pay was ZERO. I love that I get to express my quirky fashion sense. And most of all... I love my paycheck. Even if I wish it were a little more. :)

For the most part, I like my job. I am in field sales so I'm not cooped up inside all day and sitting around doing nothing. It keeps me active and the hours are also pretty flexible. Also, I have a company car and I don't have to pay for gas!!!! The pay is pretty decent and the health insurance is excellent. I just don't like my boss too much, but I do like my coworkers. I like to socialize and being in sales, I get to do it all day long. But any salesperson knows, you just have to have tough skin and be able to take anything in stride.

I'm an endocrinologist and I love helping people and helping make people healthy. It also doesn't hurt that I get paid a ton and I work in the same building as my husband (He's head of neurology dept.) :D

I work on children's policy issues for a foundation and I love that literally every story I see on the news somehow relates to my work... I also enjoy some of the perks like the being sent to national conferences to expand my network, and most recently going to the U.S. Capital through the "Official Business" door. It helps to be fairly compensated and have cheerful, smart coworkers.

Unstructured time (and the freedom to do some critical thinking about my tasks if I choose to), a more than fair salary, a fair amount of do-gooding for the public, and repeated assurance that my skillset is more than marketable. When I choose to remember those things, they make up for some of the backstabbing, antiquated processes, and sprawling committee structures.
