Realized today it's been a very long time since I've had a job where I've been "all in" - there's always been something holding me back at any given company (either product, mission, team) from giving it my all.
Is it too idealistic of me to hope to find an "all in" company to work for? Anybody on here have that?
@levi I don't think it's too idealistic—although it might be worth looking outside the corporate world. I've found my "all in" working at a state university's research office. It's not perfect (the need to protect the reputation of the institution often dictates decisions TOO much), but the fact that there's no profit motive helps. We're always looking for funding for our researchers, but in pursuit of a cause I can get behind.
@levi I'm all in for the first time in my life, but it happened by accident. It's possible. There are grey areas when you operate within capitalism, of course, but I really believe in what we're doing overall.
@levi I've not found a job that I'm totally on board with. For me it's mostly been about finding a balance between my work schedule and pay so that I can live my life outside of work. I also don't have a college degree so the likelihood of me finding that "all in" job is very very slim.
