    Plus: Flex hours, occasional trips to cool cities, the pay's OK, state pension, great coworkers, I set my schedule, no one really knows exactly what I do (so everyone thinks the job is difficult, I don't know why), fairly easy to find other research jobs once you have experience, I get to work with both adults and children
    Minus: No one really knows exactly what I do (so when I have to be off for an extended period, it can be difficult to have someone cover for me), sometimes results in odd hours, the workload is sometimes very heavy and sometimes there is almost nothing, plus I am on call pretty much 24/7/365 in case of emergencies...though in this particular job, I get maybe a call every six months.

    1) Emergency RN
    2) 4 Years
    3) Most days I love it (it's exciting, rewarding, ever-changing). . . but we see some gruesome stuff, and sometimes I just don't have enough time/pairs of hands to do the job to the caliber that I would like. That makes it incredibly stressful some days. Let's call it a +7 on the -10 to +10 scale.
    4) Some days I wish I had a completely unimportant job. One where I can have an "off-day" and that would be inconsequential. My hubby often drops me off at work and says "now go save lives!". Some days I just don't want to have to be a life saver!

    1. I am a software engineer in a research and development department.
    2. For almost 2 years (my first job).
    3. Some days I'm -5, some days I'm 10... I guess my current job here averages somewhere at... 5-6. But it's a 10 for my career in general, would't wanna be anything else.
    4. Not at the moment.

    1. General Manager/Sales and Marketing manager for a hotel.
    2. Almost 2 years at my current hotel, but just about 10 years experience.
    3. 9 Love my job, I get to meet all kinds of people and travel on occasion. I actually am getting to meet some WWII veterans this weekend, some of them were held in a concentration camp before being rescued by German fighter pilots who didn't agree with Hitler.
    4. My co-workers. Some of them aren't too bright, and they can't follow simple directions and often mess things up resulting in me having to answer the phone at 3am.
