Your Corporate Job Using You Up?
you dread getting up to face another day at
work? You're not alone. In fact, you may well
be in the majority. Corporate burnout is becoming
so widespread throughout the US and other countries
that people travel the country giving seminars
on how to handle job burnout and make workers
feel less stressed. Of course, you've probably
heard the drill-"Learn to work smarter,
not harder"... "Be a team player"...
"It came down from the higher-ups"...
"In the end this will help us reach our
goals and we'll get fat bonuses."
Of course, the goals set for
many corporate employees are so unrealistic that
the bonuses they hold out for never materialize.
Perhaps you hit 8 out of 9 targets, but sorry,
you don't get the prize because you didn't hit
that last, totally impossible ninth one. Sometimes
it feels like you're working in some sort of absurd
carnival sideshow. It's no wonder you don't feel
very committed to a corporation that treats you
like a slave. How can you feel loyal when there's
so little appreciation?
The unrelenting stress of a high-pressure job
can lead to numerous health problems as well-
hypertension, heart attacks, backaches, anxiety,
headaches, depression, and even addiction to drugs
or alcohol, either as a way to try to stay energized
and "up" to complete excessive workloads,
or as a self-medicating attempt to relax when
you finally have some time for yourself.
To add to the stress, stories
of layoffs by major corporations are announced
In 2006, 1,500,000 workers were pink-slipped in
mass layoffs ("mass" meaning more than
50 employees at a time). Rumors circulate constantly
about what the top management is doing now, what
changes are in the wind. Companies are "reorganizing."
They're "outsourcing" or selling out
to another company. Or they've gone bankrupt-only
to reappear overseas, employing workers for a
tiny percentage of their American counterparts'
Cats and Sad Sacks
Average, everyday workers like you are the ones
who bear the brunt of these kinds of changes.
CEO's and other top executives just keep rolling
in the dough-even those at companies you wouldn't
think of as "blue chip." For example,
in 2005, the annual pay package of Dollar General's
CEO, David Perdue, was $3,314,901 (as reported
by The Corporate Library). An American worker
earning an average salary would have to work
until the year 2135 to make what Perdue makes
in one year. But frankly, this guy is small-time.
The average total compensation for a CEO of a
Standard & Poor's 500 company in 2005 was
$13.51 million-over four times what Perdue
made, and a 16% raise over the year before. Did
you get a 16% raise recently?
Like many of your co-workers,
you probably feel angry, undervalued, underpaid,
and exhausted when you think about stories like
these. Few salaried employees in corporate America
work a traditional 40-hour week. Many put in 50,
60, even 70 hours to meet the demands of their
superiors. Hourly workers are cut off at 40 hours
or less so the company can avoid paying overtime-and
you know who takes up the slack. (Meanwhile, those
hourly workers may have to work an additional
job-at straight-time pay, of course.)
The "blame culture"
that has developed in our society extends into
the corporate world as well. ("It's her
fault we have to work so late. If only she'd do
her job like I do!") Feelings of competition
and worries about favoritism increase feelings
of anger and powerlessness.
What's the Alternative?
There is a way NOT to let all these other people
control your life and hold power over your economic
survival and lifestyle. You can take control of
your own life by becoming your own boss. Ironically,
as you've become more and more disenchanted with
your corporate job, you have also been learning
what kind of job you need to be happy.
Are these some of the aspects
you would include on your list of ideal job conditions?

steering your own course-no worries about someone
else determining your future.
You Got What it Takes?
You already know you deserve more than your corporate
employer will ever provide. Ironically, during
all those excessive hours of work for them,
you've honed valuable business skills that you
can put to work as you build your own business.
The difference is, you will reap the rewards.
It's kind of like being your very own CEO.
