What do you do for a living? Love it, hate it or tolerate it?

Curious about how people pay the bills.

I am a lawyer who sues companies in court or arbitration. One specialty is suing stockbrokers who defraud senior citizens, expecially single women. Yes I usually win! Generally I enjoy the game, and love it when I win big!

Tell me about your job. Love it? Hate it? Just tolerate it for the money?

This is a great question!!

I work for a global pharmaceutical company as a training manager. I find it fascinating to learn about the industry,....almost more so than my profession.

I'm convinced it must be one of if not the most complicated industries that exists.

-The products are developed by calculated guesses....can't just say, "hey, our customers need xyz...then build it for them."

- The manufacturing of medicine, especially injectables is unbelievably complicated. The quality control is mind-blowing. Besides, watching scientists and engineers working together is like the start of a "knock-knock" joke.

- The sales and marketing is very difficult do to the ever increasing time limits doctors have to learn about new products. Plus you can't do true marketing because of regulatory issues that are fair.

- Oh, and did I mention the FDA???? I assure you, that as a consumer 1st and employee 2nd....these people do an awesome job with a booming workload, and too few employees to share the work.
