I've been ready for about a year! It's like work senioritis, lol. But I need the money, so I can't make a sound until Aug 5th :( I just hate it when my boss tells me I have to train myself to use a new program or new software, tho. I keep thinking, "You really have no idea how much I don't care about what you just said to me." :wink:

God...I'm signed up to take the September LSAT and apply for the 2010 cycle. Quitting seems so far off. I just can't wait to get the LSAT over with and get my score back, because at that point I will know that getting into a decent law school is an inevitability.

I've worked at all kinds of odd jobs during high school, undergrad, and grad school, but the corporate office job I'm working at now is by far the worst of my life (and that's competing with selling women's shoes at a department store, and working on an assembly line at a non-air conditioned broom factory during the summer). I have two bosses -- one of which is herself crazy and seeing a psychologist and still getting over a divorce and not talking to her brother, and the other is an organizational nightmare. The former has had it out for me ever since I started, and invents things that I didn't do and yells at me for them, has different, more stringent rules for me than she does for my coworkers with the same job title, etc. The latter has just started to dislike me because she now knows that I am not happy there. She just sent me a nasty e-mail chewing me out badly for not sending her a copy of this project I am working on -- only I did send it to her and she just didn't see it in her inbox. Both of my bosses are significantly less intelligent than I am. I got my performance review 5 months late, there's a freeze in wages here, and I sit around doing mostly work that is only assigned to keep me busy. They lied to me about a few of the benefits here during the hiring process, and I found 8 months into the job that I got no (zero) vacation last year (started on January 7th) and only 40 hours this year.

I have no idea how I'm going to make it here for another year, but this has been a huge disappointment -- but has also been a wakeup call. Corporate offices are no place for smart, motivated, creative people to thrive and prosper. I knew it was somewhat like this, but I'm working for my second Fortune 100 company right now, and the amount of bullshit at both places is just staggering. Incompetent, crazy managers with irrational and contradictory rules that change depending on their moods. I'm sure some law offices are similar, but at least I'll get paid more and have better options for autonomous work in the future. No more underachieving for me. I should have done something like law or medical school right away. Reading all these posts in this thread really makes me hopeful.

Yeah, I am really struggling. Especially since finding out on Monday that I have to repay last year's bonus! My boss thought he could get the VP to let me keep it but alas. So now I've worked last week and this week for nothing and I won't be getting the final paycheck I expected. :?
