Somewhere, pigs are flying.

15 Aug

Lately, P.H. understands her growing disappointment with her current place of employment.  On a surface level – it is everything she could ever ask for – hours that are awesome and easy, work that is not a challenge and leave plenty of time for writing / editing, a free Blackberry, free laptop, phone bill paid for, a ticket home, and, with the exception of the Hater – good coworkers, but at the heart of what they are doing, what is she putting her time and energy towards?

At The Firm, no matter how corporate and crazy it was, the work was still contributing to something greater.  Although she never thought she would miss it, there is something undefinable about adding to society as a whole.  In the new world of private equity, there is nothing particularly valuable…just buckets of money that get moved around and invested.

While P.H. knows she will one day look back at how crazy good (?) it was to work in this environment, part of her can’t help but feel she is missing out on something.
