And I like some of the people I work with. Despite my long standing policy of not entering into personal relationships with my cow-orkers, there are some colleagues that I consider genuine friends and others that I genuinely like doing projects with. But there's also a fair number that I'd fire tomorrow if I owned the company.
But at the end of the day there are two things that have made me want to look elsewhere for some time and a third thing that is putting the exclamation point on that desire.
I am undervalued with regards to both compensation and recognition.
Major technical and policy decisions are being made without my input - I wouldn't mind this so much if these decisions were being made well.
I look at my life of white male privilege and I see how I'm spending large amounts of time working to make rich white assholes richer and I want to find a job where I'm actively making the world a better place.
So last night I started editing the resume. This morning I edited it a little bit more.
It's time for me to find a new gig.
