Seriously, I feel like I just got the golden ticket. It's not the best job in the world, but it is at least paying me a fair salary based on my ability, education, and licensing. I''ll get a signing bonus, a staff of three people, and an annual increase based on corporate operations. However, it's better than working for next to nothing, getting promoted and taking on responsibilities that belong to others, and never getting any respect.
My position will be just a senior level accountant, but I don't care. It's better than being a controller with no control over your own money.
I have had to deal with a lot of crap over the last few months as my blog could show by the incessant messes that senior management has gotten this company into. They are going to kill this business by being frivolous and insane with money management.
Part of me feels bad for those people I am leaving behind to deal with their messes, but I am also relieved to get out with my shirt.
Am I a sell out for going corporate? Probably yes, but non-profit is a dying concept with antiquated people, who are far too liberal and too ignorant of financial measures to survive. Health care cannot be a zero-sum game.
