Job Expectations

Another article in today's Boston Globe about how the new 'market' demands that employees must be realistic about job expectations, especially around salary, and job scope.

In marked contrast, I leafed through the entire issue of Fortune Magazine's Fortune 500. The number one company: Exxon. Where was Microsoft? 79th. Exxon has $210 billion in revenue, versus Microsoft's $23 billion.

A special advertising section inside featured the benefits of chartered planes, versus commercial. Talk about job expectations. Features of chartered flying include: no middle seats, just aisle and window seats with plenty of leg room; no waiting on silly lines: drive right up to the plane!; and the big one: the plane often waits for you.
