I will be sure NOT to mention this to my teammates up in Boston.

'Work' is a four letter word.

I find that the more I get paid, the less actual 'work' I'm expected to do.

Our data set ranges from employment rate to average weekly work hours to share of workers with multiple jobs.

I'll not sure any of those indicates a greater work ethic. Number of hours per week? Really? I could shave 10 hours off mine and still get everything done that I need to. Number of jobs? That's just people trying to survive. Stupid.

From what I've observed, after a certain point the higher pay goes mostly goes toward increased responsibility. When there's a $20 million dollar call to be made (number pulled from thin air) that decision will get passed higher up the command structure until it either hits someone high ranking enough to feel comfortable to make the decision or the person at the very top.

I'm in pretty much the same boat anymore...I get paid to make sure other people get the actual work done.

/of course, if they don't get that work done, I'm the first one that catches hell
//and shiat DOES flow downhill, you can believe that
///never fired anybody, thankfully

This is a systemic failure that's become ever more apparent in today's economy. A 32 hour work week is not out of line anymore from a productivity standpoint, but hourly people need their hours just to live.

"seriously flawed" would indicate there was some underlying validity to study and that they only made an error.  That would be a generous statement in this case.  "Random words pulled from the ass" would be more accurate.

I was just talking about that to a new VP at our company. When you hit a certain level, your job is no longer "do good work", it's "hire smart people to do good work and make sure it gets done".

I don't think you sit on nearly enough boards to be talking that kind of talk. Back to work!

Usually companies have things called "Limits of Authority" that says what the lowest level is who can make a $20 mil call.  So it's not just comfort, it's usually expressly laid out in their job responsibilities.

 I think it's hilarious that both my home town and current workplace are the top two.  I'm on Fark right now.

which is another kind of work.  Ii find it easier to grind out a product than to babysit minions and coercing other mids and higher managers to get their minions to get out their side of my product.

I expected San Diego to be lower on the list. You just walk outside and the desire to do any work fades quickly.
