I get to work for an organization that is campaigning on human rights, world poverty and the environment - all things which are much more important to me than a fat pay cheque, a gym or whatever other fancy.

I think working for an organization that is trying to make the world a better place - the ethical dimension, say - is the major factor in how I choose a job.

Other things I consider important are :
  • Feeling like your skills and opinions are valued.
  • Participatory decision making.
  • Being able to learn stuff. This is no way like getting sent on training courses. Its about having the space to explore and some support when I get stuck.
  • Going out for a beer now and again.

Well that's my 1/2d worth.

[Discipulus]: i think his vacuus, trombon like, absence of meaning, joined with a ostentatious style, after many years irritates the most
[erix]: easy to get wrong -- I guess that was sund's point, too :P
