I've gone to the Dark Side...

in reply to I've had my current job for

I'm a student me but I'm going over to the dark side for the summer, I'm interning with Accenture: VB & Java here we come, MUAH HA HA HA HA HA HA!

Please note: I may choose to be a corporate drone for the first five years after I graduate but this is only a)to gain enough experience in business and IT to set up my own firm and b) to earn enough money to pay off my university debts. I don't really buy into the whole corporate ethic, I just use it to my own ends.

Now if only I can stop myself from being perverted to such an extent that I actually believe the crap I spout...

    Oh yes, the innocence of youth. Going to corupt the corporate machine from within, just like the rest of us. I thought I'd never own a suit or work in a building with more than 3 floors :-)

      Oh, come on, I may be young but I'm not that naive!

      I don't mind wearing a suit anyway: I like the feeling of well-dressedness that goes with a suit and a good pair of shoes.

      yes,
      you don't break the corp. it breaks you. i have watched it break many (good) people. somehow i've been the exception. i've got far more freedom now than when i was a consultant. (then again i keep waiting to wake up one day, pink slip in hand)

      now i just have to figure out how i'm going to make a 10am meeting tomorrow

      the real perk is a window seat 42 stories up. the rest is just fodder

    ... which is exactly the 'corporate ethic' to which you refer...
