Do you love your career? Hate? Indifferent? Why?

What about you, OP?

I love what I do, but there are some seriously annoying things going on within the actual organisation and the pay is crap.

- it is interesting, challenging, rewarding, ever-changing, fun
- my 'clients' are at the threshold of the rest of their lives - I love being a part of that
- it has great holiday provisions
- I worked hard at my career early, so now have some flexiblity in my days to cope with school needs for my DD in a few years

Now that is easy to answer. Love it.
Why? That is harder.
I have found of the 25+ years I have never been bored. I find new challenges for me all the time.
After that of course, I have travelled so much with it, it has paid me nicely, and oh, I met DH

I am a SAHM, does that count as a career?

Its really quite varied and I've been able to move around a bit if i get bored. I've also been able to find fantastic female mentors!

I used to love it but now am bored and cynical. I work in hr and I just hear the same old, same d complaints day in, day out from staff, that I generally think are without merit. They all think they're underpaid (despite our expensive and time consuming research), they work too hard, not treated w the importance they deserve, get 'feedback' theyre beong bullied blah blah blah!!!!
And the higher bracket are the worst!!!
It gets really demoralizing!
Eta it doesn't annoy me when it's genuine obviously, only when it is ego driven not factually based.

love the diversity and the challenges

I had a job that I loved, but then the department decided to centralise all the HR functions, and it's all turned to crap. I was in a great role- lots of dealing with people, interesting stories, figuring stuff out. Now, i'm in a policy area, and I hate it. They have no idea what customer service is and don't know how the real world works. My phone never rings, and I'm bored out of my mind.
I'm bideing my time until they decide that they really do need us touchy feely HR people, and not just a call centre for dealing with people's issues.

I love it.
It's super interesting and you can never stop learning how to be better at it and increasing your knowledge.
It's also a feel good career, you are doing something good for the community, country and future generations.
It's also very varied (each day brings a new problem to solve/adventure) and involves being both in the office and out of it regularly.
Things I dislike - the people I sometimes have to deal with (we have had death threats) and the after-hours work.

I love my job, not sure I'd go so far as to call it a career, although it could be if I was more ambitious than I am.
I love that most people who find out what I do, say they'd hate my job.
And I really love the "clean desk" at the end of the day. No work comes home with me, either literally or figuratively.
