So, I’m pretty convinced that working for salary is for suckers and corporations that don’t care about their employees. Most other professionals (lawyers, accountants, psychologists, etc.) are compensated as non-exempt (hourly) workers. Consulting seems like the only alternatives for engineers looking for engineering work without the labor-as-a-commodity treatment from companies. I’d love to establish some sort of consulting firm, but my impression is that going at it alone is frustrating and lonely (James?).
Hey, wait a minute- I know a talented group of engineers (+Jake) I enjoy working with. And who doesn’t love teamwork?
As an alternative, I would consider buying this Titan Missile Base and turn it into a sustainable artist retreat. Anyone have $1.5 mil available? Pleeeeeease?
