It's All About The Benjamins?

I love my job. I love the company I work for. I love the people I work with.

There are things, however, that I don't like about my job. Like crunch times. And unpaid overtime because of labour bylaws that don't require it. Like heavy dependencies on other parts of a team that prevent me from doing my job and that lead to the aforementioned unpaid overtime.

But since there's no video game developers union (and I'd be surprised if a union were ever workable for this industry), these things are necessary evils sometimes.

My friends sometimes think that the way my job works is silly. They sometimes can't understand why I would do what I do for the relatively low salary I make when I could be doing other jobs for more moola.

Well, it's like this: You take the good with the bad. I'm sure everbody has a few things about their job that they don't like. And with my job, there's definitely far more good than bad.

I thought stock options were the carrot that keeps games people going?

Actually ridiculous amounts of highly caffeinated beverages is what keeps us going. Har har.

Sounds strangely like Starbucks...stock options AND caffeinated beverages. ;)
