Stop Global Whining
Good article. There seems to be a personality trait among many IT pros, although not exclusive to IT, toward whining about one's situation, employer, job, lot in life, etc. They like their work, but hate their job. The "blame game" is the most popular game of all. While conflicts exist and must be dealt with, employment itself is not a conflict, but an agreement. If it's no longer mutually beneficial, either the employee or employer can say "goodbye". We've moved beyond the stereotypical "Industrial Revolution", company-man, assembly-line employment model everywhere but in the mentality of the employees.
